All Twitter accounts of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s spouse Bushra Bibi are fake, a report in the local media has revealed.
The report quoting PTI Deputy Information Secretary Sarah Ahmed stated that the first lady does not hold any official Twitter or Facebook account. She remarked that the social media accounts mentioned on insaf.pk website are the only real ones and all other accounts should be considered fake.
Fake news have been emerging from fake social networking accounts of the ruling party including First Lady of Pakistan Bushra Imran. According to a survey, the top-ranked fake account of First Lady of Pakistan @bushraakhanPti has 45,996 followers and has “wife of Prime Minister of Pakistan @imrankhanPti Twitter official account” written in its bio data. Moreso, the account has listed insaf.pk as its website information.
It is pertinent to note that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has only 32 official accounts that are actively spreading the party policies and day to day activities.
Interestingly, this user account is now asking the people to follow the new Twitter account with username @bushra_khanpti.
Three other fake accounts of the first lady, including @realBushraImran with 8827 followers, have also been noted.
These fake accounts are continuously posting comments on the important policies of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government and people who believe them to be real are retweeting the comments and tweets.
Addressing the matter, the PTI is working to verify Twitter accounts of all important office-holders of the party which could be identified with a blue tick-mark on the right side of username. This will help the people identify which accounts are real and therefore share the correct information.
