Nelson Mandela Foundation

Twitter moved swiftly on Thursday to suspend a fake account purporting to belong to the “Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela Foundation”. 

The Nelson Mandela Foundation has three official Twitter accounts, @NelsonMandela, @MandelaDay and @NMFDialogues. The Foundation’s account with the handle @NelsonMandela is verified. 

The fake account, @MandelaFound, was closed after the Nelson Mandela Foundation flagged the account under its authenticity rules as an instance of impersonation, in accordance with Twitter’s guidelines.
