Two Twitter accounts under the name Jacque Carter have begun to tweet about the prioritization process.
The Twitter account accredited to Doane's President Jacque Carter, with the handle @DoanePresadent, has been active since April 2020, with five followers as of now.
The first and second tweets from the account (shown in the photos above) appear to be attacking senior Student Congress President Haley Miller and senior Vice President Quinn Martin. The two tweets are from April 15 and 16 of this year.
“I personally find the account to be pretty entertaining because I know it’s satirical and as long as it remains light-hearted I don’t see a problem with it existing. Humor is a common coping mechanism to stress and there are plenty of reasons to be stressed right now, so I can’t see why not engage in some light-hearted fun, as long as it’s appropriate and stays classy,” Martin said.
One tweet says “Doane is closed.”

The latest tweet says “thomas the tiger has been sold”.

After a long period of inactivity, the account began tweeting again on the prioritization process going on at Doane.
Recently, the account has replied to faculty members’ twitter accounts on the topic of prioritization, specifically replying to political science professor Tim Hill’s account, @poliscihill and Religious Studies professor Dan Clanton’s account, @DanClantonJr
"Program Analysis. The Presidential Review Panel will identify programs for which an action isrequired, normally programs in quintiles 4 and 5. At its discretion, the Panel may reviewprograms outside of quintiles 4 and 5 to reach the target dollar amount identified"— Jacque Carter (@DoanePresadent) October 9, 2020
Martin believes the account is for humor but did not approve of the way the owner of the account replied to Clanton's tweets.
"I do not approve of the account's rude comments/responses towards Dan Clanton," Martin said.

Not only that, but the account has tweeted in reply to another presumed fake account, impersonating Carter, with the twitter handle @fauxjacque. The account states “Chasing that paper. Not affiliated with Jacque Carter”.

The @fauxjacque account has 26 followers as of now.
The owners of the two accounts are currently unknown. However, they have been gaining more attention this week as the controversial prioritization process continues.
