Meet @MStenphen, the hypothetical Twitter account of EUCOM deputy commander General Stephen M. Twitty. It would probably be a better effort at #StolenValor if the creator had bothered to spell the general's name correctly or check what continent he's on first.

@MStenphen @ZellaQuixote Who's following the fake general @MStenphen? A weird mixture of #MAGA accounts (at least 420 of its followers have participated in #MAGA follower trains) and a surprising volume of non-English accounts, most of which are in Japanese. Also, it follows 59 bots.
@MStenphen @ZellaQuixote Speaking of trains, @MStenphen itself is currently being promoted by at least one account posting follower train tweets (@nine_oh_.) We found replies to deleted tweets that indicate the fake general may have ridden other #MAGA trains in the past, but can't be certain.
@MStenphen @ZellaQuixote @nine_oh_ We then looked at the accounts @MStenphen follows. Language breakdown is similar - 73.6% English (71.8% for followers) with Japanese in second place. It follows 132 bots (including all 59 that follow it.) 62 (47%) are in English, 51 (38%) in Japanese; 19 are in other languages.
