After being hacked on Facebook North Side MLA Ezzard Miller pulls the plug on his social media presence.
The Independent MLA says instead he will return to traditional means of communication to get his message out. Mr Miller is the second MLA in as many weeks to report cyber mischief.
Earlier this month we told you about a fake Facebook profile in the name of Premier Hon Alden McLaughlin. The RCIPS issued an alert on that one. But the vocal North Side MLA says he’s dealt with his hacker differently. “I don’t intend to ever go back on it, because you have no control over it and what’s the point? If the public cannot tell the difference between what’s genuinely put up by Ezzard Miller and what somebody else put up then what’s the point? So I do not intend to be involved in it no more, period,” Mr Miller says.
Health Councillor Roy McTaggart says his Facebook profile has also been replicated. He’s urging people to reject friend requests from any profile with his name.
