Real Miliband tweets back

"The Foreign Secretary does not have a twitter account, although he does blog", reported the FCO after The Guardian, BBC, Sky News and many more were taken in by failing to check whether a rather unlikely spoof Miliband tribute to Michael Jackson was real.

But he does now.

With his younger brother @EdMilibandMP having recently become a twitter enthusiast in his climate campaigning, using the micro-messaging service tonight to break the news that the PM plans to go to Copenhagen, the Foreign Secretary is now open for business at @DMiliband.

He writes:

Ok this is really me. Off to UN tomorrow. Big week for climate change. Ditto Iran and Middle East. Please send me your thoughts

For those once bitten and twice shy, Krishnan Guru-Murthy of Channel 4 News, whose brother is an FCO staffer who has tweeted "David Miliband is officially on twitter - and it really is him this time" are among those who confirm its veracity.
