Despite his imprisonment over 3 months ago, former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak appears to be keeping in touch with his ‘rakyat’ through social media posts via his accounts which are either handled by his daughter or his team.
His views are often noted down and shared to his followers through his social media accounts whilst those handling his accounts have also campaigned on behalf of himself and his political party UMNO.
Recently, Najib’s Twitter account shared a video of a PH politician’s speech where she said that PH has not always been good and has had its good and bad moments.
"Pakatan Harapan ada sikit baik, ada sikit tak baik.
Kadang-kadang okay, kadang-kadang tak OK.
Kadang-kadang boleh pakai, kadang-kadang tak boleh pakai."
Akhirnya, calon DAP minta maaf atas kegagalan PH.
Lalu minta diberi satu peluang lagi.#CukupSekali pic.twitter.com/n9ab69xc6n

In the caption of his post of the video, Najib wrote, “Finally, the DAP candidate apologised for PH’s failure. Then asked to be given one more chance.”
Enough is enough!
It appears that was the last straw for some people who have had enough with Najib’s thoughts as a prominent broadcaster recently took to the platform to urge Twitter CEO Elon Musk to suspend Najib’s account.
In his post, Astro Awani Anchor & Senior Current Affairs Editor & Astro Executive Producer Ibrahim Sani wrote, “Hi, the owner of this account is in jail. Like literally. With no access to internet.
“And yet this account is still active. Clearly someone else is using it. Please permanently suspend this account since it violates Twitter‘s Terms of Engagement.”
Hi @elonmusk , the owner of this account is in jail. Like literally. With no access to internet.
And yet this account is still active. Clearly someone else is using it. Please permanently suspend this account since it violates @Twitter ‘s Terms of Engagement https://t.co/5IDG0jvl6a

Others are in support
Ibrahim’s post has garnered plenty of attention and currently sits on over 5,333 likes and 3,880 shares at the time of writing. Plenty of netizens agreed with his comments.
“As a Malaysian, I confirm this claim as well. The owner is currently incarcerated, an impersonator is clearly using the account to spew misinformation to the public.”
“Please block or delete for good,” commented another user.
One user said, “The true owner is in jail and every status made is bad for Malaysia generally.”
What do you think? Should Najib’s Twitter account be suspended?
