Right after Raja Koduri announced that he was leaving AMD, we noticed that his Twitter account was switched from GFXChipTweeter to RajaOnTheEdge. Curiously, GFXChipTweeter is now known as the Fake Raja Koduri.
GFXChipTweeter Is Now Fake Raja Koduri
After we posted the news on Raja Koduri’s departure from AMD, we tried to tag him, only to discover that he just switched to a new handle – @Rajaontheedge. We are not sure why he would need to change his Twitter handle since it’s technically not an AMD handle.
Even more curious was the new name of his previous Twitter handle GFXChipTweeter. It was now named Fake Raja Koduri, and sports a picture of AMD’s Ruby with Raja Koduri’s moustache!
The GFXChipTweeter account is a brand new account, following only the new @Rajaontheedge handle.
Raja Koduri Is Now RajaOnTheEdge
All of Raja’s previous tweets have been migrated to the new @Rajaontheedge handle. He hasn’t yet posted anything since the switch to this new handle. He last retweet @LisaSu (AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su) on 13 September – the day he left for his sabbatical.
Do I Need To Follow RajaOnTheEdge?
If you had earlier followed GFXChipTweeter, you don’t have to do anything. Twitter has automatically switched your following to RajaOnTheEdge instead. You will no longer be following GFXChipTweeter (Fake Raja Koduri).
If you want to tag Raja Koduri, you just need to tag @Rajaontheedge, instead of @GFXChipTweeter.
We now await his first tweet as RajaOnTheEdge, possibly announcing his move to Intel…
