Chishti Vs. Twitter in the House of Commons.
I agree that yes, this can be annoying but in the case of Mr Chishti's "hacker" it has done nothing but actually give him some column space. The hacker wrote nothing libelous or scandalous indeed it was just mundane information like the printer breaking down or eating a sandwich out in the park, if anything this made the whole thing that much more believable!
I've said before that I'd almost forgotten who my MP was and low in the last month he has appeared in two stories locally, both seemingly self serving, this one and the one defending boundary reforms which could be argued was saving his majority for the next election.
He doesn't sit well in the media that in the same paper (Medway Messenger 21-11-11) there is this article on Rehman Chishti wittering on about a fraudulent Twitter account that did no real harm and in this case is only applicable to him (on page 11) and on Page 7 is a picture of Tracey Crouch doing good in the community of Chatham and Aylesford raising money for Children in need with Freddy the fox. Where was Rehman on Children in need?
