Mischievous tweet by NZ First MP spoof

NZ First MP Asenati Lole-Taylor has had problems with a spoof Twitter account for a month or so. It has caused genuine confusion about which account is the MP’s account – the correct one is @asenatitaylor (as per her profile on the NZ First website).

The spoof account is @asenatitaylormp which in itself is mischievous as it uses a naming convention commonly used by MPs.

The account has tweeted today:

Have had many media inquiries today, it is me who has been meeting with Mr Dotcom. Expect announcement soon.

I think that’s beyond a joke and is quite mischievous. There is a lot of speculation today after NZ Herald said that several MPs had been talking to Kim Dotcom about jumping from their party and joining his Internet Party.

But the Herald refers to electorate MPs, and Lole-Taylor is a list MP. And I think she would be very unlikely to be connected to Kim Dotcom.
