As for its tweets, it mostly posts things that are intensively graphic and sexual.

I always let the waiter know I give mad head

Gave my man a lap dance on my period oops


Or commenting on current American pop culture.

Can't even get coffee without people asking for photos cause they think I'm Kylie Jenner lol

Sometimes it completely abandons its central premise and just turns into a normal Twitter novelty account, posting memes.

And it most recently went mildly viral after trolling a customer service representative for United Airlines.

.@united excuse me but one of your flight attendants was extremely rude to me. I'm still in shock. This doesn't happen on AA

@UmaKompton That's not something we like to hear. Please provide details via DM so we can forward your feedback to our Inflight team. ^DS


.@united she called me a redneck coconut head bitch. This is her here

The account appears to have an endless supply of photos of "Uma" and also sometimes features her husband.

Society calls us cousins....but that's just a word. God gave us love #love

Her husband is referred to as "Simon."

He always sleep so deep after he nut ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’‘

And he has a Twitter page too.

What I'm getting @UmaKompton as her abortion presentโ˜บ๏ธ


But if there weren't enough red flags that this stuff wasn't being tweeted by a grown woman and her husband, there's something else sort of fishy about the account. Sometimes "Uma" is surrounded by signs that are written in Cyrillic.


...and using them as memes on Twitter.

Jessie J wanna be me sooo bad!! โ˜•๏ธ

Evgeny told BuzzFeed News that Uma Kompton was definitely using their photos.

Evgeny and Natalya work for a stretch ceiling company in the Moscow area. Evgeny said he's never heard of the Uma Kompton persona and that no one from America has attempted to contact him or his wife about it.

When asked what he thought about the whole thing, he just said, "Find them."


Uma Kompton appears to be a copycat of Lucia Cole, a similar fake account that was using stolen photos to sell iTunes downloads of old Jessica Simpson songs.

iTunes / Via

In July, a group of teenage boys discovered that the R&B artist Lucia Cole was actually a completely fabricated account. The photos of Lucia Cole actually belonged to a model named Reese Cromwell. And Cole's music were actually Jessica Simpson songs with their names altered.

Whoever is running the Uma Kompton account agreed to be interviewed by BuzzFeed News over direct message.


And then immediately after the conversation with BuzzFeed News they tweeted this:

Don't believe anything you read in the media about me. It's all lies


The Uma Kompton account was suspended by Twitter. The owner of the original account has opened another account, but it uses Ulyanina's less than the previous one.

Ulyanin's husband Evgeny wrote to BuzzFeed News on Friday saying he was grateful the original account was suspended.
