The internet is known for giving users the ability to make themselves anonymous. In some cases, it can be too tempting for internet users to pretend to be someone they are not, given how easy it is to set up social media accounts in any name. Imitating as another person online, even if it’s for harmless fun, is a crime in the state of Texas with very serious penalties. Online impersonation was made into a criminal offense in 2009 after a bill was passed that prohibited harassing another person by impersonating them online. Texas legislature expanded the definition of the crime even further to include impersonation on social networking sites as well as electronic messaging programs.
