Three years of Twitter Cloning & Impersonation Leading Autism Campaigner

Three years of Twitter Cloning & Impersonation Leading Autism Campaigner

Kevin Healey reported vile abusive impersonations and Twitter cloning accounts to Staffordshire Police, but Kevin's Twitter Troll offenders have still not been caught or prosecuted, again at the weekend Kevin's twitter account was cloned, impersonated and even his twitter handle was cloned, it took twitter four hours to close the cloned account down.

Kevin Healey, who, himself has autism, is a campaigner and founder of two Autism Charities, he is a national leading autism campaigner and a national ambassador for autism in the UK. Kevin has endured vile cloning of his Twitter account for three years and he is now calling on social media giants to verify and protect is Twitter account.

Following Kevin's request for Twitter to verify and protect his account from impersonation, twitter responded by saying, 'that he does not meet the eligibility criteria'. However, similar campaigners, who have also received online abuse on Twitter, such has Denise furgus, have had their Twitter account protected and verified.

Nearly 1,722 people have already signed Campaigner, Kevin Healey's petition asking Twitter to verify him, and some high profile celebrities, MP's and MEP's have also written directly to Twitter to request that this social media site verifies Kevin's account, as a matter of urgency, but still Twitter refuse, other Social media Platforms Facebook, Google, and the new Social Media Platform MyEye launched by David Beckham have verified his social media accounts, but twitter still refuse.

Kevin said:

"I just want my account on Twitter verified and protected. I am tired of the constant impersonations and Twitter cloning! If I was a celebrity, an MP or a footballer, my trolls would have been caught, prosecuted and jailed by now! Its now nearly three years now i just feel that because I have autism and I am not in the public eye, I am being ignored against. I just can't believe in the 21st century, in this digital age of technology, that they have not been traced already. It is very frustrating that it has now been going on for over three year's and it has still not been resolved!
However, Staffordshire Police have been very helpful. I just want these trolls caught and jailed for this serious disability hate crime offence. It has had a serious long term effect on my health. I suffer from PTSD now, due to all the cyberbullying, cloning and impersonation, it's something that never goes away, and every time I log on to Twitter, I'm more self-aware and frightened of the next impersonator to attack me. It has been absolutely horrific; it feels like identity theft when you are been cloned & impersonated. It makes me feel violated. It is so wrong and very little can be done about it. On some occasions it's taken Twitter up to two weeks to close down the troll impersonators. At least, by having a verified account, people will know whom the real 'Kevin Healey" is
