Aussie politician denies Twitter spam

Written by Nick Farrell



Users complain he is a right Hunt


An Aussie politician was dubbed a right Hunt after users were beseigned by spam being sent from fake accounts which had his name on them.

Opposition environment spokesman Greg Hunt's office denies it is responsible for an army of fake spam Twitter accounts that social media experts say retweeted his posts and other anti-Labor party missives.

Twitter disabled several of the alleged “bot” accounts after complaints from users.

The suspicious retweets were on Hunt's tweet from last week that claimed the carbon tax was partly responsible for job losses at Penrice Soda in Adelaide. It has had over 200 retweets compared to the single digit retweets his other posts had.

Experts say that the retweets point to a Liberal party campaign.
