The Daily Maverick reports that more that 100 tracked Twitter accounts have been tweeting that the State of Capture report was “useless and rubbish”, and that the real enemy is “white monopoly capital”.
There are suspicions that the accounts were created by one person to help the Gupta family with their public relations campaign.
Social media expert, Jodene Shear, says the tweets look suspicious, and they will not last long.
