A lot of time is being expended in the creation of several Julian Assange impostor accounts on Twitter. These accounts equate to black propaganda. They are aimed squarely at Assange, as well as unwitting Twitter followers.
The problem appears to be that once one fake account is closed, another is opened under a new handle, but with the same Twitter I.D. account number..
Impostor Account Examples 1:
WikiLeaks @ JullianAsange – changed handle to @ _AssangeJulian
The second handle has been suspended. The first has been re-used under a new account created on the 28th of June (to reserve the name, so no-one else uses it) http://archive.is/QErgX (using Austrian footballer’s Julian Erhart photo as an Avatar) ID 880100132380786689
Impostor Account Examples 2 (13/08/17 Update):
Julian Assange @Real_Assange changed to Julian Assange @JulianAssunge and then to @JulianAssanged adding a diamond symbol for verification, then changed again to @JulienAssange and then to @JuliannAssange, always the same twitter ID 860223427180773376.
As the account changes handles, any search for the pages produce “page does not exist” whilst the current page retains all the tweets and followers of the historic accounts from the day of creation. This is the way the account handlers avoid being suspended by Twitter, leaving room to re-cycle the same handles in the future.
Impostor Account Examples 3:
Wikileaks @WiliLeak ID 887461508267073536
Wikileaks @WikileaksTeam ID 887477583595655168
The correct accounts
Meanwhile WikiLeaks supporters have been busy reporting these impersonation accounts, but so far without much success.
