The latest person to take over the Ireland account has left many people unimpressed

AMERICAN graduate Maria Oswalt has attracted significant attention due to her stance on abortion, which she reportedly did not disclose before taking over the account.

The 'Ireland' account (@Ireland) is a Twitter account dedicated to people telling their story, with each week employing a new face to look after the account.

This week sees the arrival of Maria Oswalt, a pro-life activist and editor of a pro-life magazine 'Life Matters.'

Oswalt however, simply introduced herself on the account as a graphic designer.

As people began to search her name on social media, it became evident the designer was not revealing all.

Oswalt reiterated that she was simply on a holiday visa, however more posts involving her work with 'Life Institute' left many fearing she was using the account to spread her pro-life agenda before the upcoming referendum on repealing the 8th amendment.

Oswalt clarified she wasn't taking over the account for her own agenda and apologised if her stance made people not like her.

Given her past, however, many Irish Twitter users were left unconvinced of Oswalt's seemingly good intentions.
