London: Whoopi Goldberg has cautioned fans about an impostor who, she claims, has set up a Twitter account in her name.

The comedienne, 54, who doesn’t have an account on the microblogging site, was shocked when she discovered someone had been pretending to ``tweet`` as her online.

And now she is warning fans about the fake Whoopi. "I need everybody on Twitter to know there is someone pretending to be me. I have no account... I don’t ever wanna (sic) be on Twitter. The person who is answering your questions is a fake.

Let everybody know. I’m not on Twitter," a news daily quoted Goldberg as saying.
