The Members’ Security Support Service (MSSS) is able to assist you with getting your Member’s social media accounts verified. This will mean that a blue tick will be shown against the username of the account.
Why is this important?
Simply put, it shows that you are who you say you are.
MPs are often the subject of fake or imposter accounts, and by getting the account verified, the public can be assured that it genuinely is the MP’s own account and not an impersonator. It also makes it much easier for social media platforms to take action against fake accounts.
Unfortunately, there’s nothing that can be done about parody accounts which are clearly identified as such.
