PHOENIX -- Jodi Arias has not only been making headlines around the country. She's also been making her mark on social media.

Thursday, it was revealed that the accused murdered has been tweeting from behind bars, or so it seems.

Social media strategist Kinsey Schofield has been following the case, and she sat down with Good Morning Arizona's Javier Soto Thursday to tell us what she thinks.

"This is the craziest thing I've ever seen in social media," she tells us.

We asked her: Is it really Jodi tweeting?  "This is actually a friend tweeting for Jodi, named Donovan, whom Jodi met in jail," Schofield says. "Jodi calls Donovan when she's got a quote or a tweet, and Donovan just updates Jodi's twitter status for her."

Schofield believes that it's somewhat inappropriate, considering that Jodi's life is on the line. "I think you really see what a narcissistic person she is," Schofield says. "She really is a sociopath, when you go read that she's attacking HLN anchors, she's attacking the prosecutor, Juan Martinez, and you get a  good idea of who this person is who we're dealing with."

Communicating through social media is legal, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio has said that he's aware of what she's doing. But the group Change.org has launched a petition to stop her from tweeting.

Arias is also running a business from behind bars. "She's selling her paintings for $2K a pop," Schofield says. "Meanwhile, we're paying over $1.5 million for her defense. And she's taking all these funds from her paintings to do God know what with."
