Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico - On Sunday, the administrator for Valor por Tamaulipas (VxT) Facebook page posted that he decided to keep VxT live online, but will be less active or won't be posting risk situations at a regular basis. The VxT Facebook page was scheduled to go off-line or deleted on Sunday.
Many followers have noticed that the writing style of the current administrator posting on VxT is considerably different than the original administrator who was writing posts before the VxT page disappeared on April 1. The VxT page once again appeared on April 7 and continued to publish since then.
Many VxT followers had believed that the administrator had been killed after he went off-line, without warning leaving many users who depended on his daily postings about risk conditions in the region in the dark. 
When he returned, he also warned that the recently cloned VxT Facebook accounts are just copies. Those accounts should not be trusted and people posting information on them should use generic accounts, so they can't be traced by criminal organizations or drug cartels operating those accounts.
The official VxT Facebook and Twitter accounts served to expose the daily criminal activities by corrupt Mexican government officials, criminal organizations and feuding drug cartels, including murders, road blocks, bombings, kidnappings, drive-by shootings and disappearances of victims.
In February, the VxT administrator was forced to move his family to the U.S. after a drug cartel offered $47k dollars ($600k pesos) for information leading to his identity, so they could eliminate him. 
Currently, numerous clones of VxT have been active on the Internet, but the official VxT warned followers that those clone websites were run by criminal organizations or people trying to provide false information and attempting to imitate him.
VxT is considered one of the main reliable sources of information for people residing in the Reynosa region, since it began to post criminal activity in the area on January 1, 2012.
