Today, Aaron Gates, Alex Petrucci, and Adam Irzyk all posted on Facebook to prove they captured Ditto. They contacted and tagged my via Rhode Island’s Pokemon GO community page it turns out they actually did! Three of them, all catching the same Magikarp, received Ditto and it is not a glitch. [UPDATE: It seems so far you can capture Ditto from Pidgey, Zubat, Magikarp, and Ratatat. Angie Brassard, Ryan Volton, and hundreds of others for giving us information — we thank you!]
The following is the same user verifying with the location:
Here is Ditto as a buddy courtesy to Kristen Marie (also charge your phone):

Right now, thousands are flocking online communities with their pictures. You all deserve to be happy because this is an AWESOME accomplishment!
If anyone else has information, please reach out and let me know what type of Pokemon you caught that turned into Ditto! Huge shout out to little Rhode Island, USA, for joining together and finding Ditto!
