+ - Former Obama "digital strategist" accused of Twitter fraud->

Submitted by Zondar
Zondar (32904) writes "Former Obama "digital strategist" Brad Schenck has been accused of creating multiple fake Twitter accounts to send pro gun control tweets to members of Congress. One recipient of these tweets, Rep Steve Stockman (R-TX) said his staff noticed identical tweets coming in from multiple Twitter accounts. Of those, a disturbing trend was discovered:

"Stockman said that in response to Obama’s call for people to tweet their congressman in support of gun control legislation, he received just 16 tweets. But he said all of these messages were identical, and that a closer look at them revealed that only six were from real people."

Brad Schenck, Obama's former digital strategist, somehow managed to follow these some or all of the 10 allegedly fake Twitter profiles before they ever sent a tweet or interacted with anyone.

Is this Twitter sockpuppeting? You decide."
