Hey guys - we're trying to get an official Permies Twitter account going, but it looks like our handle has already been set up by someone, then abandoned a few years ago. When we try to recover the password for the account, the email address it links to is something like firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm not sure how many other characters are actually in the address, but it starts with Jo, so is there maybe a John or Josh here somewhere that set this up and forgot about it? We'd love to get access to the handle @permies, but can't do it unless whoever has that account can step forward and help us out.
Okay guys, this one is going out in the new dailyish, but in case we don't track down who created this mysteries @permies twitter account, does anyone have any suggestions for a snazzy new Twitter handle?
Location: Montreal, QC mostly. Developing in Southern New Brunswick, Canada.

you might try reporting the account - I'm not sure anything will come of it but it could end in the account being terminated, and the handle being awarded to youz.
although I doubt the intentions of the creator of said account were malicious the following (copied from the report violations page) could serve to have the account shut down.
