After the start of the Canadian 2011 election, several twitter accounts have appeared using the #DeadPMplatform hashtag. These accounts impersonate deceased Prime Ministers of Canada tweeting both about the current election and on events during their tenure in politics. They either promote their historical platform or a fictional “Dead PM Platform” competing for votes in the current election.
