Wednesday’s FTB: What are the Maple Leafs burner accounts?

New, comments

Former Raptors and current Philadelphia 76ers GM Bryan Colangelo has been outed as using multiple fake twitter accounts

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

Over at The Ringer, a story has suggested that former Toronto Raptors and current Philadelphia 76ers general manager Bryan Colangelo has been using multiple twitter accounts to defend himself and trash 76er players and former employees:

The Curious Case of Bryan Colangelo and the Secret Twitter Account - The Ringer
A collection of Twitter accounts that has criticized Joel Embiid and Markelle Fultz, disclosed sensitive information, and outlined team strategy shares eye-opening similarities. What does that have to do with the Philadelphia 76ers’ decision-maker?

This brings me to wonder if the Maple Leafs have any burner accounts? Kyle Dubas is a known tweet liker on his open account, could he possible be out there on another account shitposting about the Senators every night? Is Shanahan running a fake rumor account to gauge public interest on possible moves? Lorde once ran an instagram rating onion rings, is Lou behind a snapchat all about milkshakes? The questions this raises are great and fun but there’s one burner account that has always been much to obvious to get away with anything. So, I must be the one to break the news.

Acting the Fulemin is actually Zach Hyman.

So obvious right?
