Nico reports:

Readers today are directing me to the account of a new Twitter user alleging to be the same person. One of those posts today reads, "WARNING! Am Safe. Basiji corrupted my twitter acct. DO NOT SEND INFO TO ME @persiankiwi! Great danger!"

It's so difficult to determine the reliability of these posts, and I urge readers to consider them very cautiously.
