Confuffle over names appearing on the ‘Yes Scotland’ campaign website

Changes have been made to the website for the "Yes Scotland" campaign to win independence, just days after being launched.

BBC Scotland claims that the move has come after complaints that people who followed its Twitter account were listed, along with their pictures, as supporters of the campaign.

In future, says the BBC, only the names of those who have signed up will feature on the site and denied that anyone following through social media had been listed as ‘supporters’.

First Minister Alex Salmond has set a target of signing up one million people to back independence.

Those interacting with the site through Twitter and Facebook had featured under the phrase ‘Powered by People O’ independent mind, like you’, which will now cease following feedback.
