It's 10000% spam, pure and raw.

raw meat? :(
 
@MetaAndrewT. spam is cooked not raw.
 
Then, what is raw spam? :)
 
well the spam coming from spammers is not cooked, although a possible solution to spamming might be to cook the spammers ;)
@MetaAndrewT. One could say reported spam has been metasmoked using charcoal and burnt as it has set off a smokedetector :)

@Rob what about it?
@MetaAndrewT. sushi
@DavidPostill sounds yummy actually ;)
@Mithical guess he's bit confused, as there's no "staff" indicator on his profile. Fake news on Twitter?
Or did he join SO for a week and left/have been removed?
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Maybe they haven't given him a diamond yet?
 
@DavidPostill not relevant, staff indicator means the user works for SE, without it it means the user does not work for SE.
Maybe he's some external consultant?
No diamond anywhere, yet solid staff indicator on profile.
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Well he's just been welcomed by the CEO
 
@DavidPostill where?
Didn't see any official post from SO/SE itself.
 
5:59 PM
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating twitter.com/developerayo
 
Anyway @Mith didn't explain, just put it here, so not sure what are the intentions behind it.
 
@DavidPostill can be easily faked... no idea what it is, actually.
 
Rob
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating It was spam, and the answer not remotely connected to the question.
 
I mean something posted on SO/SE channels, not on some personal twitter.
I can also claim I work for SE, it won't make it true at all.
 
Rob
6:00 PM
Kinda shoddy.
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating From his github account.
If it is all faked it's a very good one ...
 
@DavidPostill I mean what's the source? Who created this welcome? Or did he create his own welcome? Something here is weird. Very.
 
"I can’t wait to begin on the 25th of January 2021" - so a bit early for any staff indicator
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Presumably if you join SE that's what they send you?
 
@DavidPostill hmm
Anyway, found what's going on, we fell for the common trap of not reading everything.
 
Rob
6:05 PM
Starts Monday
 
> and I can’t wait to begin on the 25th of January 2021
face palm
So staff bit will be added in two days.
Unless of course this is indeed a complicated scam. :D
!!/blame Ollie
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating It's rene's fault.
 
Rob
6:57 PM
@DavidPostill @sha Looks legitimate: twitter.com/… benjamindada.com/shodipo-ayomide-stack-overflow - see the tweet
 
7:54 PM
@Rob Do keep up. Myth posted that 3hrs ago.
 
Rob
8:17 PM
@DavidPostill Do keep up. She kept saying she couldn't understand what I was saying, and it was taking an increasingly impolite tone, so I blocked her months ago; she no longer complains so it must be working. ;)
 
8:44 PM
@Rob Just FYI, that's not the correct pronoun there. They've explicitly stated in their chat profile that they use plural pronouns.
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating Might be a SOfT thing?

@ShadowWizardisVaccinating mentioned on Yaakov's twitter so legit
Not sure what be is though
Mentioned he is excited to work with SO mods and title was mentioned somewhere as developer relationship manager ...
 
@Mithical maybe, or something sent to email of the new employee.
@JourneymanGeek yeah, I just missed the "begin on the 25th of January 2021" part, otherwise wouldn't consider anything as weird.
@JourneymanGeek sounds more like CM to me:
> working in-between the Community and the Platform Engineering team here at Stack Overflow
Now for the nightly task... folding mountain of laundry:
!!/coffee
 
10:09 PM
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating brews a cup of Latte for @ShadowWizardisVaccinating
 
@ShadowWizardisVaccinating tbh, all those tags might be useful skills for a CM
 
@JourneymanGeek nah, not a CM.... unknown role.
 
\o/
I know almost as much as you do.. so nada :D
 
Might be this one, can't know for sure.
 
10:33 PM
Not someone I have ever heard of before
