social media persona & impersonating someone

2013-12-18 18:34:53.15124+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

RT Neil Gaiman @neilhimself:

...and my Google+ profile is "suspended because it impersonates someone". It was set up for me by Google. I am puzzled by this.

I'm just giggling over this because it wonderfully encapsulates so many different aspects of identity and philosophy. The persona I project to each different social media site is slightly different, so is each one of those personas impersonating another one? What makes Neil Gaiman's Twitter persona the canonical one? etc...
