TIBET TWEETERS ARE CHINESE PROPAGANDISTS

0

BEIJING: Beijing has created at least 100 fake Twitter accounts to spread propaganda about Tibet and other Chinese concerns, a campaign group said. The social networking site is blocked within China, but Free Tibet said it had identified around 100 accounts—many of them bearing Western names, usually a combination of two forenames — as “undoubtedly fake,” adding there could be “hundreds more.” They are dedicated to circulating China’s message on Tibet and other issues such as the restive region of Xinjiang, home to largely Muslim Uighurs, the London-based group said in a statement.
