Things are about to get confusing for Boris Johnson.

The London mayor, who is also campaigning as the Conservative candidate for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, has just set up his own “personal” Twitter account to plug his efforts to return to the House of Commons.
He's tweeted three times so far from the new @BorisJohnson account and has already got more than 11,000 followers.
Johnson has insisted that he can do both jobs for the year until the mayoral elections come around in 2016.
“It has been done before and I see no reason why it shouldn't be done again,” he said at the time.
But is he prepared for the chaos of managing two Twitter accounts?
Perhaps the stress is already getting to him. His last post from @MayorofLondon was on March 27.
Still it could be worse. He could be stuck up a zip wire with nothing but a pair of flags to wave sadly...
