[Fwd: Julius vs. Twitter]

The ANC Youth League on Thursday vowed to trace the "reactionary,
rightwing, white people" who impersonated its leader Julius Malema on
Twitter, but would not divulge how this would be done.

"We'll trace them... that is very possible to do," African National
Congress Youth League spokesman Floyd Shivambu told Sapa, in reaction to
at least 12 Malema impersonators existing on the social networking site.

"We are sure, when they get exposed, you will see it is white people.
Reactionary, rightwing, white people."

Asked how the tracing would be done, he replied: "We don't want to
expose our strategy on how we will get them. But we will get them and we
are going to report them to the police. It's fraud, this thing, it's
unacceptable, it's against the law."

Twitter users were in stitches on the social networking site on Thursday
morning following the news Malema wanted to close it down.

Tweets kept rolling in by the minute, with international news websites
such as BBC, also picking up on the story.

Most of the comments were about the ANCYL's poor spelling and grammar,
which included calling for the "closure of twitter" if its
administrators did not tighten up the system.
