Sooo someone just followed me and retweeted something from my twitter account (which has about 4 tweets over 5 years because I only use it to follow other people) and their profile and interests are alarmingly like my stalkers. Their account is a few months old and is about being borderline (something which, to my knowledge, my ex wasn't), but also mentions genres my ex liked.
I really can't tell if this is paranoia (the amount of social media and forum accounts I've deleted over the years just because I suspected someone was my ex...) or if this is genuinely them. They were slightly more careful about hiding their identity towards the end, but not very. Argh I'm so sick of this I haven't felt safe in five years and I don't know what to do anymore.
This is something which would scare me too. Even someone sharing the same name as a previous abuser of mine freaks me out, and I have to sort of cyber-stalk that person a bit to make sure it's a different person.
Your paranoia sounds perfectly reasonable though, so I don't think it's psychosis or anything (though this amount of stress could eventually trigger psychosis or other symptoms, so take care of yourself).
I don't know much about Twitter, but if you can block them, maybe that's a good idea? If you're still not sure, maybe take a week or so and watch their activity and look for other red flags.
Honestly I just sort of freaked out and deleted my whole account. Nothing is worth them being back in contact with me. I could have blocked them but as I've learnt from the past, once they know about one account they'll just keep trying until they find a way in. Thanks for the reply though
