I thought they were the same ones

Its a State sanctioned and probably a State run troll account. Why everyone is going gaga over a tweet of some random troll account.
The Chinese twitter guy is a Pakistani larper. But I did like the pics the DD guy posted so just posted here for more info.

I had seen it from the same location as well in 2012 November. Might have mentioned here somewhere, don't remember though enough.

Wiki says the IAC-1 was moved out in December 2011 too before its formal launch ceremony. So it was moved out 3 times in total.
When I had seen it, it was in the creek on the bank of Lake/creek towards bridge side. I think I might have some old pics as well but unfortunately my old Compaq laptop is gone permanently I guess with decades of information still stored in the hard drive. Seems to be malfunction with either the Charger or battery.
