First, read this article: The Daily Maverick :: Julius Malema vs the many-headed Twitter Hydra.

Last week the ANCYL said it would lay a complaint of fraud against Twitter users purporting to be Malema, and warned that if site administrators did not act swiftly to muzzle them it would move to have Twitter shut down.

as Quoted.

I still laugh every time I read that. Then I  just shake my head. His public outbursts are cringe worthy to say the least. He borders (and crosses) on hate speech. He is an embarrassment not only to ANCYL, but to the whole country. And his superiors do NOTHING to reprimand his actions. He is not a dog, so ignoring bad behaviour isn’t going to make it go away.

I narrowed it down to delicious, stumble upon, digg, twitter, reddit, facebook, muti and laaik it.
Yikes, that makes 8, right? Lets see how it goes. Will add them to the most searched pages so far.
