Managing Editor

Ann Arbor residents, White Mar-
ket, a neighborhood grocer on East
William Street, is
planning to close A4.i
on Aug. 25. .

arrival of a new
landlord caused ____
speculation that
White Market would close. But

since 1984,wasbluntinhisexplana-

Daily StaffReporter
Presumptive Republican pres-
idential candidate Mitt Romney
is facing scrutiny after a study
conducted by Barracuda Labs, a
digital security company, high-
lighted an "abnormal increase"
in the number of his followers on

Twitter.
Barracuda Labs is the global
"research and threat analysis
team" of Barracuda Networks,
an IT security company based in
Campbell, Calif., with a branch
office located in Ann Arbor.
Published on Aug. 3, the study,
called "The Twitter Under-
ground Economy: A Blooming
Business," analyzed the growing
market for fake profiles on the
social networking site.
Mary Catherine Petermann,
director of corporate communi-
cations for Barracuda Networks,
said the company's researchers

have been looking into social
networking usage and threats
for the past few years.
"About six months ago, we
conducted a study into the fake
accounts on Facebook - and
then just last week, Facebook
said in its SEC filing that it has
approximately 83 million fake
accounts registered as users,"
Petermann said. "This week, we
extended that look into Twitter
and found some very interesting
results."
Researchers at Barracuda Labs
created three Twitter accounts
