A Twitter user claimed that “Geo News Urdu” reported a statement by MQM given after over ruling of No Confidence Vote in National Assembly.
“All our promises and agreements were in case of success of no-confidence motion, Asif Zardari’s reply to MQM”.
The time when the information was retrieved, the tweet got 125 Re-Tweets with almost 500 likes.
For verification of the news, we checked the @handle of “Geo News Urdu” and found the following verified twitter account with username @geonews_urdu.
Then we checked the username from the shared post which was @geonewsurduu and found it to be a Parody Account of Geo News Urdu Official Account.
A parody account of Pakistan’s well known television Geo News shared a false claim, it is a satire but it has the potential to mislead the people as its username is very similar to the official account of Geo News on twitter.
