Pistorius media team starts Twitter account

A Twitter account called @OscarHardTruth has been set up by murder-accused paralympian Oscar Pistorius’s media management team.

“This platform, along with the website, will become the key outlet for information,” spokeswoman Anneliese Burgess said on Monday.

The account was linked to Pistorius’s official website oscarpistorius.com.

“It’s intended to be a factual sharing platform.”

She said the Twitter page would be linked to certain media coverage and would deal with issues which needed clarifying during the star athlete’s murder trial.

A tweet sent out 17 hours ago read: “As the trial approaches, many untruths, half-truths and versions of the truth have [been] and shall be spread across the world.”

Another read: “We will address the truth and expose those with ulterior motives. The Truth will Prevail.”

Pistorius is accused of murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in February last year. His trial is scheduled to begin in the High Court in Pretoria on March 3, and to run until March 20.
