Submission + - Politician threatens to close twitter accounts->

hedleyroos writes: The South African ANC Youth League is upset about twitter accounts portrating themselves as its controversial leader. They have gone so far as to contact the US embassy in South Africa to assist in shutting down the satirical accounts. From their spokesperson: '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. We will also institute civil claims against them and sue them.'

A radio personality added further fuel to the fire by encouraging people to create more such accounts.
