This afternoon, @SenatorDuffy tweeted a link to Xtra.ca’s story on Harper’s new anti-gay speechwriter!
Alas, it’s not the real Conservative Senator Mike Duffy (PEI’s most expensive senator, says an NDP-produced report.)
If you couldn’t tell by the tiled hamburger background and the black moustache in his profile pic, the @SenatorDuffy Twitter account is a parody. The real Duffy isn’t on Twitter, and if he was, the likelihood of Duffy tweeting an Xtra.ca article is about… one in a million.
The CBC reports today that the real Duffy has asked Parliament Hill tech staffers to find a way to remove the fake Twitter account.
As of 8:30pm, @SenatorDuffy is still online — follow him while you can!
Some @SenatorDuffy highlights worth retweeting:
- "So my expenses are high. $403,392 per year not including salary. Fill out a comment card and see if I care. http://bit.ly/3X7U3y #cdnpoli"
- "off to get my H1N1 shot… safety first #roft #cdnpoli"
