The 'Milifandom' founder has accused Rupert Murdoch of sending reporters to her home

The teenager had some questions for Murdoch and The Sun.

THE 17-YEAR-old founder of the “Milifandom” — an online fandom devoted to Ed Miliband —  has entered into a war of words with Rupert Murdoch after reporters from The Sun doorstepped her at her home.

Abby, better know by her Twitter moniker @twcuddleston, had previously stated that she would not grant interviews to reporters following the explosion of the Milifandom.

Last night, however, she claimed that reporters from The Sun has visited her home and her grandmother’s house, despite the fact that she had never mentioned her location.

And she decided to ask Rupert Murdoch how this might have happened.

She also revealed that her father was previously oblivious to the Twitter account and confirmed that reporters had also visited him at his house.

The news has prompted outcry on Twitter with many rallying around the teenager and calling on The Sun to leave her alone.

In an interaction with Abby, a reporter for The Sun claimed her details were obtained through the electoral roll. Abby disputed this saying that she is not on the electoral register as she is still only 17.

In spite of everything, however, Abby has pledged to continue tweeting.

Ed would be proud.
