I have counted three stories so far:
'Find Ben Needham' Twitter blocked by official 'Find Madeleine McCann' account
'Find Ben Needham' Twitter UN-BLOCKED by official 'Find Madeleine McCann' account
Find Madeleine close Twitter account
Which was about this tweet overnight:
Find Madeleine @ findmadeleine · 14h 14 hours ago
Due to the continuous abuse and negativity on Twitter, we will be removing our account within the next few days.
So the timeline over the past few days has been:

They knew knew exactly what happened to her.

Someone else, who knows a LOT more about websites than me, said it was likely that an IT savvy TM supporter had 'fixed' the gofundme site under Google by somehow sending in a spoiler mini programme to attach to i,t so the Amaral page won't come up as it should. Another contributor said Google itself had somehow been 'leaned on'. I wonder which it was.

I used to type 'amaral fund' every time to go to the fund page and it was always the first listing to come up, but it has now mysteriously disappeared from google. Now an article about Amaral's fund on the miscarriageofjustice site is first in the list!
