A screenshot is going viral on social media. It has been claimed in this tweet that the newly elected PM of Australia, Anthony Albanese will give $ 2.4 billion in funding to the World Economic Forum over the next three years.
A user posted on Facebook the caption “why??” along with the screenshot of the tweet.
Similarly, a Facebook user named Robert Obrain also posted the same tweet’s screenshot,” He’s only just got in and it’s already downhill all the way.” Reads the caption.
On searching the internet, we found Anthony Albanese Australian Labor Parody (an unverified @AIboMP Twitter handle) tweeted on 23 May 2022, “Australia will fund $2.4 billion over the next 3 years to support the World Economic Forum, which is currently hosting the 2022 meeting in Davos, Switzerland. This will also be an opportunity to foster a sense of camaraderie, collective purpose, and common destiny.”
It should be also noted that there is no Twitter account of the newly elected PM of Australia Anthony Albanese from the @AIboMP Twitter handle. His Twitter account is verified by the Twitter handle @AlboMP and under the name Anthony Albanese. No such tweet has been made from his verified account on 23 May.
It is to be noted that in the handle @AlboMP of the verified account, “A” is followed by “L” whereas “A” is followed by “I” (I) in the unverified account.
A fake Twitter account has been tweeted in the name of Australia’s newly elected PM Anthony Albanese. Hence the claim made through the screenshot is false.
