Lalonde, who has written before about having a stalker, uses a P.O. box and tries to keep her information offline as much as possible. So sharing her ID over email is very uncomfortable for her.
"It's a complete violation of my privacy," she said, noting that earlier this year Twitter reportedly shared a woman's address and other private information with the person she tried to report for harassment.
Lalonde says she has spoken with police about how to stop the impersonation, but the easiest solution, according to her, would be for Twitter to simply verify her account. She said she's not sure why she's well-known enough to warrant a parody, but not so prominent as to get a blue checkmark.
"I either have to completely give up my online presence to trolls and allow them to dictate how my Google search looks, or I have to be aware that monitoring my social media for these kinds of attacks is just a part of my life."
