    All throughout this window spursman tried to keep agent_itk out of the twitter thread, and probably for good reason.

    He's just announced to his 35k followers that he was trolling and made it all up :302:

    Agent_ITK - Longer Tweets - TwitPlus

    "Here is the big announcement to all 35,000 followers that I have on here.
    How many ITK calls did I get right? A hell of a lot more than I got wrong that is for sure! It is finally time for me to leave you all. I started this account to prove that ANYBODY could be an ITK and I could if I so wish get 10s of thousands of followers.
    I was proved to be right.
    I am somebody who decided to show the Spurs forum I frequent that anybody could be an ITK and could easily fool the public, much to my amusement it was easier than I thought.
    What I didn't realise is that I would be used as a "source" for The BBC, Talksport, LBC, Radio London, The Daily Mail, The Sun, The Star, Sky Sports News and even The Independent. I was even mentioned on TV channels in Ireland, Australia, Spain and Fox in the USA.
    I am not an ITK yet as some of you will no doubt say you released you still followed, like sheep being led to the slaughter. My every word was hung on and retweeted and retweeted, only getting the arse when the news I was telling you wasn't what you wanted to hear.
    Some of the abuse that I have put up with is shocking, although it is always mainly from numptys will a small cock who are probably afraid to go out after dark.
    I have left many hints over the last year of what I was doing, yet about 3 of you ever clocked this.
    I will not apologise, as I was proved right anybody as usual! Anbody can call themselves ITK and get away with it. Within 4 weeks of starting this account I had 5,000 followers! SHEEP, baaaa, baaaa.
    If I was you I would unfollow @backpage, anybody with "mole" in their name, @FouthOfficial_ is a complete fraud, @POTL, @JJetset, [MENTION=4319]AFCA[/MENTION]MDEN, basically anybody that is telling you things that THEY think you want to hear!
    Good Luck to you all, I think you'll need it. Baaa, baaaa..."

    I must say well done to him, just goes to show how ridiculous the transfer window is. He makes some really good points as well. I laughed out loud when I saw it though.

    Not really a surprise but it's interesting that he came out and admitted it at the end. It's the danger with the Twitter ITKs though isn't it. My understanding is that the stuff on SC has to be ratified by the mods (i.e. the ITK has to tell them who their source is) which makes their stuff vaguely more reliable. Even then I suppose you can just lie about it though. Anyone who believe these ITKs whole-heartedly deserves what they get in my book.

    Agent_ITK was always a fraud, I called him out on it weeks ago and he replied with some nonsense, the only sad thing about it is not that people listened to him, but that he thinks he's being original by coming out as a fake, some kid did it last week (and somehow made certain news sites by doing it) and another kid did it even before him but deleted the message. All of their "im fake" paragraphs were basically the same comments too "oh i am a kid, i was bored so I was trolling to see how gullible people are etc etc etc)

    Akqayid isn't an ITK and I don't know why people considered him one, he just scanned around others and copied whatever they said usually in his own words, plus giving an occasional made up story of his own (such as berbatov agreeing terms with us after Fergie trolled the media)

    JJetset i've always considered a fake too, he is purposely cryptic with everything he says so he can save face when whatever he says doesn't happen. Saying things like "oh we're in for a goalkeeper & a striker & a midfielder" is ridiculous to claim you're "ITK".. saying we're in for EVERY position is just simple guesswork.

    The other ones i've never heard of. I don't see the point in it tbh, what satisfaction is taken from sitting on your computer all day making up random bollocks to try and trick people on a social networking site. Surely they have something better to do in their sad little lives.

    As if a professional football agent earning thousands upon thousands is going to jeopardise their career by sitting on the internet posting all their inside information.

    Why such a tragic lack of compassion for the plight of fellow fans. Many can be forgiven for falling into the trap of following these blubbering fools; they told comforting lies, not unlike a priest or politician might. Every person is susceptible to this trickery, it is part of the human condition. Anyway I think this ought to be taken as a valuable lesson, effectively with the lack of reporters in many war torn countries we have what amount to ITKs providing dubious information not just to major news outlets in the UK but also in the United States and elsewhere. It is all fun and games when the topic is football and pleasant lies are spun, but what happens when the clients are not football fans but governments and kingmakers... millions upon millions are duped daily, it is bigger than the acquisition of Moutinho this episode

    nah we should probably take this as a moment to laugh at fellow fans, forget the nonsense about a serious regard. Absurd that one can achieve such respect on a forum yet still find it within his self to resort to base wnckery. may reason and a warm meal find its way into your life
