    Unfiltered tweet feed on ICANN website pokes fun at .xyz giveways.

    Like many meetings/conferences, ICANN publishes a tweetstream on its page for each meeting. That includes the site for the upcoming ICANN 51 meeting in Los Angeles, which pulls in all tweets with the hashtag #icann51.

    The conference is still a couple months away, so you won’t find many relevant tweets about the event. It’s also an unfiltered feed.

    Which is what makes it funny. There are a bunch of parody accounts of ICANN CEO Fadi Chehadé, and one of them is featured front and center on the ICANN 51 meeting site right now:

    The rest of the tweets on the page are due to spam hashtags from DomainGang.
