Twitter ordered to reveal identity of anonymous left-wing troll account who allegedly defamed indie journalist Avi Yemini

PRGuy news

Last week a Federal Court in Australia ordered Twitter to reveal the identity of the person behind an anonymous hard-left troll account.

The account known as ‘PRGuy’ operates under the Twitter handle @PRGuy17.

Independent journalist Avi Yemini claimed PRGuy had defamed him when the anonymous account tweeted that he was a ‘threat to national security’ and a criminal’. Yemini asked the court to force Twitter to reveal the user’s identity so he could commence defamation proceedings against him/her.

Yemini believes the account is closely linked to the office of Victorian Governor Dan Andrews, and is being used by the state to defame and attack political opponents or dissenters.

At last week’s hearing, court orders to unmask PRGuy’s identity were made by consent, a sign Yemini claims, that the tech giant knew it had no legs to stand on in opposing his application.

Twitter must release the information within 14 days of 7 June. In an earlier case, Yemini also won the right to serve legal papers on Twitter’s head office in Dublin, even though it technically won’t be a party to the later defamation case.

  1. Danger Dan has also set up a whole spy operation on his state population and funded it. Daily reports are directly sent to Dan. Implemented a second booster mandate. There are too many psychopaths in Australia. Most of them were the children of wardens who managed the convict female for sure. Facisist Shyte passes through DNA and shows up at the opportunistic time like cancer genes.

  2. A few years ago, I spent a summer working with the circus. Watched a young Indian guy in a raincoat stick a broom up the wrong side of an elephant, trying to help the poor creature find some relief.

    That was the biggest turd I’d ever seen.

    And then I saw Dan Andrews.
