This is also a Freya Newman, a whistleblower who earlier this year made headlines for leaking information regarding a $60,000 undeclared scholarship granted to the Australian Prime Minister's daughter, Frances Abbott.

Leader of the Australia Greens, Christine Milne, seemed to tweet the wrong Freya Newman in August of 2013.

FWIW, it does not appear the Australian Freya Newman has a twitter profile.
