A bogus Twitter account set up in the name of Conservative North-East Somerset MP Jacob Rees-Mogg has been changed to BarryReesMogg.
The MP tried to close down the account down over concerns people would think the tweets covering topics such as politics and cricket were genuine.
A spokeswoman for the MP said he "was glad nobody would actually think it's him now".
Under the new account the author describes himself as the MP's "cousin".
Some of the tweets on the bogus "JakeReesMogg" account appeared to parody the Old Etonian MP.
