A day after Delhi LG Anil Baijal’s office sought action against his imposters on Twitter, the microblogging site Twitter has suspended five such accounts while “legal action” has also been initiated,
Police have also written to Twitter seeking log details of these accounts. They had done so much before the Lt Governor’s directions came,
“We had already asked Twitter to close the fake accounts operating in LG Anil Baijal’s name before the directions came from his office,” As per Delhi Police .
“As soon as the information about the accounts came to notice, Twitter is requested to close them.
Several of these fake handles, active since Baijal was appointed to the post on December 28, were putting out misleading posts critical of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his government.
On January 1, the LG’s office made its Twitter debut with the handle being @LtGovDelhi. Over 2,600 people are following it as of now.
