Someone’s set up a swag of fake Twitter accounts under the names of Labour MPs. Apparently Labour came across these on Monday at the latest and wrote to Twitter telling them the accounts were fake.
But no-one, including his staff, told John Key the tweets were obvious forgeries.
So he jumped up in Parliament today and tried to table one of these fake tweets supposedly from David Cunliffe. Only to end up looking a fool when Cunliffe showed the letter from Monday to Twitter.
Good on you Key’s staff. Using Twitter you’ve made Key look a total twit.
[update: the exchange in parliament is here. the fake twitter is here. It’s one of five set up at the same time and then ‘discovered’ a few days later by the minor Nat blogger who obviously created them]
