Convenient timing since Twitter has just become the main route now for spreading outwards the McCann v Tony Bennett saga. Given that the newspapers and BBC (formerly the sources of national news) have been gagged, and seeing the mighty forces being applied to one old aged pensioner, to shut him up, no wonder the papers and Aunty Beeb have gone into hiding.

Well, toying with thoughts here. Maybe it depends on who's protecting them. Sinister and excessive forces are being employed by Team McC, to shut people up, that we know.
Alternatively it could have a more simple explanation.
Perhaps we're all being drawn into some sort of Orwellian / New World Order testing ground.
Perhaps it's just hackers who have discovered that they can use their IT skills to hold systems to ransom.

Fact is Someone is hacking Twitter (unless the BBC are either mistaken or lying). If so, we're left with the question, who is doing the hacking and why?

It’s worth bearing in mind that twitter is the main outlet being used to ensure the authorities do not bury the Fernbridge investigation as it was in the 80s. Yewtree is being reported in the media but the real names are over at Fernbridge including politicians, intelligence personnel and members of the royal household. And nothing is making the mainstream. By carrying out such a broad hack it is impossible to attribute motive which in itself indicates deception and subterfuge. It’s gathering momentum with hard copy newspaper articles from the 70s and 80s having been retrieved and tweeted. They can’t put the lid on it like they have been doing for so very long.

Re: 'Agressive Following'

I have no idea as I sent 2 tweets to #mccann - polite and reasoning - that was it. 2 tweets in my whole Twitter experience!

I just read this comment on the DM site:
spit coffee

My twitter account was hacked yesterday and I've been unable to use it, so this morning I decided to walk around town with a megaphone, shouting my thoughts into it randomly. I only managed to gain 5 followers, and all of them were policemen. - Archie Andrews, Clonetown, United Kingdom, 2/2/2013

Did he happen to mention whether he 'thought' they were policemen, or they were 'thought policemen"
