Facebook Disables William Shatner's Account

Someone at Facebook has decided that the venerable William Shatner is an imposter, according to @williamshatner on Twitter.

Shatner tweeted the following just a few minutes ago:

“Facebook disabled my account this weekend as an imposter acct. Now they want me to prove that it’s me. Don’t they know who I am? MBB.”

(MBB stands for “My best, Bill” - which is how Shatner signs off on his tweets.)

Shatner’s Twitter account is “verified. “  A verified account, according to Twitter, establishes “the authenticity of well known accounts so users can trust that a legitimate source is authoring their Tweets.”

UPDATE:  News of Facebook’s flub dashed across Twitter at the usual light speed.  An hour later, Shatner tweeted that his Facebook account had been restored.
