Who is Chicago Ray (@Chicago1Ray) on Twitter?

Chicago1Ray (@Chicago1Ray) known as, “Chicago Ray” on Twitter is a radical right-wing account. The account is highly influential, with not only over 100k followers, but has written tweets that have as many as 15k retweets. Chicago Ray also claims to have been retweeted by former President Trump 6 times.

Despite it’s reach, the account is highly radical, and it’s unclear why it hasn’t been banned for violating Twitter’s rules.

History

We’ve been able to verify that the Chicago Ray’s image is connected to a real person who used to live in Chicago. However, the individual (who we are not revealing for privacy reasons) appears to have a bit of a shady past and seems to have no personal social media accounts. The account also spreads hate and uses memes in a similar way to foreign troll accounts. However, while these things are suspect, and a pattern we’ve found on other suspect accounts such as the influential Catturd account, it’s far from proof that the account is controlled by someone else other than the person pictured in the profile image.

The account began January 2017 and was very pro Trump from the start. The account also expresses deep rage that borders on threats and open bigotry.
