On Twitter Andrew Leigh is fake

johnboy 25 June 2011 6

Prolific blogger and Member for Fraser Andrew Leigh has posted a warning that whomever is using his name and likeness on Twitter is definitely not him.

On a day when Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey is posting photos of a Kevin Rudd cutout, it’s ironic that I’ve acquired my own Twitter impersonator, who is tweeting rather odd things under my name and photograph. We’ve had Twitter shut one of his accounts down this week, but he’s started up a new one today (and presumably will do the same thing when we shut down his next account).

So for anyone who has any doubts – I’m not on Twitter (but I do offer a wide suite of e-products, including an e-report, a blog and regular replies to emails…).

If you thought sarcasm was the lowest form of humour you’ve obviously never encountered a Twitter hoaxer.

It’s not ironic, Andrew.
