Twitter Shuts Down Phony Accounts Republicans Created To Bash Democrats
Connecticut Republicans created 33 phony Twitter accounts in the name of Democrats to send out phony messages mocking Democratic policies. Paddy at the Carnival caught it. And the state Republican chairman (right) doesn’t even get how wrong this is.
“That’s unfortunate,” was state Republican Chairman Chris Healy’s response when told of Twitter, Inc.’s decision. “I’m not quite sure what the issue is, other than that the Democrats were successful in stopping free speech.”
Healy’s party may have suffered a setback with the loss of its Twitter campaign, but Republicans are still operating the 33 Web sites they created using the names of those same Democratic lawmakers. As far as anyone knows, this is the first time any state party has used such a tactic to mock its state opponents.Click here for reuse options!
