The Mysterious Blue-Checked Twitter Account of 'Dr. Jialun' Who Blamed Trump After Capitol Ramming Attack

At least we thought we could rely upon the Twitter claim that blue-checked folks were actually confirmed by Twitter to be real people.

But, now comes the very strange story of “Dr. Jialun Chen,” why he is verified, and who is really behind the account — after the car-ramming incident at the Capitol yesterday, allegedly committed by Noah Green, who was a member of the Nation of Islam.

But the @DrJialun account immediately blamed President Donald Trump and “Trump insurrectionists.”
...
Even after it was pointed out that it was quite likely that it had nothing to do with Trump, the Jialun account still blamed Republicans.
...
But there was a problem. The account ,when I first noticed it, had 52 followers, which you never see Twitter verify — and it was just started in March.

The person claimed to be a doctor in the San Francisco Bay Area, but listed affiliation with “Hospital Santa Cruz,” which doesn’t exist in the area but does in Mexico and Brazil. The banner is one stolen from Ellis Medicine, which the person appears to have no relation to, and the picture appears to be stolen from a Korean doctor who joined Twitter in 2011.

Twitter gots some 'splainin' to do, not that they will.
