ZICONIC'S TWITTER ACCOUNT?

It says "OFFICIAL" but it doesn't look or act like Coz's & Team Z's account. Opinions?

  • Definitely a fan-based twitter account.
  • Pretty sure it's not official, but they are freely using blog photos & a painting of Zenny and all her babies that I've never seen. He also said he was dedicating his first race THIS SUMMER to Princess Z. Kind of odd he's sharing all this stuff.
  • He also said that Dortmund was dead.


    Newp. I think Dortmund is very much alive. LOL
  • No, he was responding to Dortmund's tweet about Diversy Harbor's death.
  • I sent an email to Team Zenyatta about the "official" account, so they should either confirm it's theirs (seems unlikely) or make sure it's taken down or is clearly specified as a fan page.
  • Good idea. Something else weird about the account is that he has like almost 500 followers. I clicked to see his followers and the majority of them are foreign, looks like from Malaysia or someplace that have nothing to do with horse racing. I'm wondering if this person bought followers, which can be done. It's really sketchy and if it isn't official, and I agree it's probably not, Team Zenyatta needs to know he is posting stuff from the blog. His most recent tweet was a photo of him having facetime with Zenyatta which we've seen before, but he makes it seem recent.

    Hi everyone, you're all correct that this is not an official account. We're in touch with Twitter about this. Thanks!

    Thank you, Kylea. They have now taken down the "official" from the Ziconic twitter and removed Zenyatta.com from the header. It just says "2 year old colt by Tapit out of Zenyatta."
  • No, he was responding to Dortmund's tweet about Diversy Harbor's death.
    glad I'm not the only one that midread that !

    Kind of a noninformative account. Hope they have fun.

    Hope the link works!
  • Very nice pictures! Although the one that says it was taken on the 30th was not - here is the photographer's original upload.

    Not really his Twitter feed. Don't know connection to him.
  • @Ziconiccolt is an unofficial account with pictures obtained from @NYRA and @teamzenyatta
    It's just a nice place to go visit when you need your Ziconic "fix" because so very little is available that is "official"! Thankfully, we also have posters like EliRose who follows sites and post news and photos when she finds them.
  • He did get called out a while back for taking credit for photos and saying photos were taken at a certain time when they weren't. Looks like he has gone back to his old ways.
  • Is there an official Twitter account now? Just wondering if there are tweets today.
  • Yup, there's an official account for him now: https://twitter.com/ItsZiconic

    Mostly just retweets of pictures and stuff though.
  • Ah, thank you.
