Twitter Yanks Olympic Protestors' Account

The account, @spacehijackers, is run by a group of anti-capitalist activists who regularly protest in a variety of ways against big corporations. Their latest campaign is against the Olympic Games and within the last two weeks, the group has changed their Twitter biography to read: “the Official Protesters of the London 2012 Olympic Games”. The group’s account has also adopted a new Twitter avatar and wallpaper design – featuring a doctored version of the official logo of the London Olympics. A spokesman for the group, who wishes to remain anonymous, told The Telegraph that the account, which has been active since 2007 and had around 2,600 followers, had been suspended this morning following a complaint from the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games.
