We should all be grateful to Evolve Politics for spotting the latest wheeze in the ‘Get Corbyn’ campaign of lies.

It seems certain persons, with malice aforethought, have decided to clone Jeremy Corbyn-supporting Labour Party members’ Twitter accounts with a simple substitution.

They are swapping the lower-case letter “L” in victims’ Twitter handles for an upper-case “I”, and using the new, fake account to spread abuse.

Obviously the intention is to screenshot this abuse and then use it to make fake accusations against the victim – to “frame” them, to use an old expression.

If you are likely to be affected (if you have an “L” in your Twitter handle), I would suggest the best thing to do is check that your account hasn’t already been cloned, and then create a clone yourself. That way, nobody else can do it and you control the cloned account.

Here are the Evolve Tweets that explain:
