Johannesburg – Oscar Pistorius’s public relations team has created a new Twitter account in which they claim they will reveal the truth surrounding the trial, according to reports.

On Monday Pistorius’s personal Twitter account referred all followers to @OscarHardTruth tweeting: “For the truths behind the Trial, Follow @OscarHardTruth. They will uncover the truth, the trial and those involved.”

The Paralympian will stand trial in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria next week, for the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in his Pretoria home on Valentine's Day last year.

According to Eyewitness News, Pistorius’s media manager Anneliese Burgess said that she and several family members will be managing the @OscarHardTruth Twitter account.

Cerebra Communications public relations strategist Craig Rodney told EWN that the account was their way of creating their own platform and not relying on journalists.

A few tweets on @OscarHardTruth have already laid out the exact purpose of account:

“As the trial approaches, many untruths half truths and versions of the truth have, and shall be spread across the world.”

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

“This platform will share info i.a. alerts to possible briefings/statements, links to key media coverage and clarification when necessary.”

The account already has 6 486 followers and growing.
