TOM FORD on Twitter? Think again.

UPDATED March 25, 2014:

Please click here for details on the Complete TOM FORD Social Media Experience. Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.

Start following the official channels today!

Don’t believe the hype.

Neither TOM FORD the brand – nor Thomas Carlyle Ford the man – are on Twitter. (As of March 28, this has changed! Visit this page for details).

There has been a lot of social media activity lately surrounding the release of the Complete TOM FORD Beauty Collection and OWN Visionaries documentaryBoth Facebook and Twitter have been absolutely buzzing with news and reviews about the doc and products and Bergdorf Goodman in particular has been promoting the beauty launch quite well.

One thing I have noticed of late is that many, many people on twitter seem to believe @ttomford is the official account of TOM FORD. I had always thought it was a fake, myself, but I started to question that the more I saw it mentioned on twitter.

So… I decided to find out.

I broached the question to the Powers at Be at Tom Ford International and they confirmed: it is 100% fake.

I repeat: neither TOM FORD the brand – nor Tom Carlyle Ford the man – are on Twitter.

If you want to follow TOM FORD through official social media channels, you’ll have to stick to the Facebook page for now.

Meanwhile, here’s hoping that one day the brand may have an official presence on Twitter as well!

    Dang, I thought that Twitter account was verified and everything! I doubted the real Tom Ford team would do something like adding another “t” to the Twitter handle anyway – makes much more sense now. Sofia Coppola has dealt with a lot of people making fake accounts pretending to be her on Twitter, and some of them even go so far as to promote new “films” with their own poster artwork and everything. It’s crazy. (Of course, the best way to resolve the poseurs is to…ya know…get the original subject on Twitter. *hint hint, Mr. Ford*) I’m glad to know the Facebook is real, though!
