Fake Dalai Lama

Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan Buddhism and the political leader of Tibetan people. Often referred to simply as "His Holiness" (HH), or "His Holiness The Dalai Lama". "Lama" means "teacher" is a title given to many different ranks of Tibetan Buddhist clergy.


A Twitter account supposedly written by the Dalai Lama has been suspended after being exposed as a fake.


The feed attracted nearly 20,000 followers within 48 hours of launching, reports the Daily Telegraph.


It claimed to be administered by the "The Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama", and directed inquiries to the exiled monk's official website.


Explaining the 73-year-old's decision to join the microblogging site, it said: "His Holiness thought it was prudent to make his office open and assessable to a more youthful and technologically advancing audience."


Another Tweet read: "I'm sure HH will be just as inquisitive about technology as he has been over the past 14 reincarnations."


Twitter took the rare step of suspending the account after it emerged that the person behind it had no connection to the Nobel Peace Prize winner.


"The account was suspended because it violated our Terms of Use regarding impersonation," Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said.


The feed is now live again, with a caveat that its contents are not affiliated with the real Dalai Lama.
