ICANN 51 site shows funny tweet from parody Chehade account

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.

    I would not call them “spam”, Andrew. Domination of the market, more like. Thanks for noticing, John Berryhill called it “f*cking brilliant”.

    Hashtags, just another yard stick to hold up as “proof” of ones…size…compensation at its best 😉
