Cavendish victim of Twitter impersonator

Well what keeps a person with the same name from setting up the same twit account? Names are not unique enough to prevent this from happening, don't believe me search for your name on the internet and see how many pop up! Sure you are unique but not your name.

I know I know, in this case it is a true impersonation but much like domain names if you buy it you own it, whether you have the company name or person's name. Twit? Well I'm sure they'll fix it under the circumstances but you'll be fooled again.
