I’ve documented a bunch of the hashtag hijaking in Azerbaijan, but today they took it to a new level.
Fake Twitter accounts for Emin Milli and Adnan Hajizada were created.
The fakes used the same Twitter photos. With Emin, his real account is @eminmilli and the fake is @eminmiili – almost impossible to see. Adnan’s real is @fuserlimon and the fake is @fuserlemon.
Many people (including myself) were fooled.
While this is not a nice thing to do, I do have to applaud the effort. The tweets were pretty convincing, if a bit confusing. Well played, Azerbaijan cyber troublemakers.
And the accounts that Fake Emin is interacting with are a bit odd, huh?
And here are some good efforts at trying to fool us.
This one links to Emin’s Facebook… SMOOTH move!
And this one says that Adnan was hacked.
