Twitter Suspended Satire Account

Twitter has agreed to please the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games, also known as LOCOG, and shut down the @spacehijackers account. The latter describes themselves as an activist group using spoof and satire to ridicule the authorities and large corporations. A while ago, they targeted the world’s largest arms fair – DSEi – Nike, and now switched to the Olympics.

Space Hijackers have declared themselves the official protest group of the Olympics and altered the official Olympics logo so that it displayed black and red, which are the traditional colours of anarchism. It looks like this caused the ire of the committee dedicated to serving the interests of the Olympics’ corporate sponsors.

The holder of @spacehijackers has received a letter from Twitter saying that the service had received reports from the trademark holder that the mentioned account was using a trademark in confusing or misleading way. That’s why @spacehijackers has been temporarily suspended because of the violation of Twitter’s trademark policy. However, Twitter clarified that the suspension was temporary and said that if the account holder had created a brand commentary, fan or news feed account, they would have to edit it to comply with the company’s best practices before getting their account reactivated.

In response, the Hijackers listed the reason they were protesting the Olympics and dismissed the accusations of trademark infringement. They also described their surprise over the speed their account was shut down, because it was just a parody, and there was no chance of them being confused with the any regulatory authority. Actually, their name itself (Official Protesters of London 2012 Olympics) points to the parody at every stage. That’s why the group was so shocked and saddened that Twitter, who so vociferously supported the Arab spring, was so fast to curtail the freedom of speech after being approached by a large corporate interest.

Meanwhile, Twitter refused to comment on individual account suspensions, and London Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games also hasn’t replied to the press questions. Fortunately, the Space Hijackers account was back soon, and their first tweet on return was: "Please understand that your account is subject to permanent suspension if it is found to further violate our Rules regarding impersonation".

menahunie avatarskeletrro: Also to you others who have the same mind set as this poster.
YOU can find out yourself to confirm what I am about to say very easy..

Way too many people THINK they know their Constitutional Rights; yet they DO NOT..

The United States Constitution DOES NOT APPLY TO PRIVATE BUSINESS..
The Constitution ONLY APPLIES TO THE GOVERNMENT...

Say I am Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. I CAN SHUT YOU DOWN ANYTIME I WANT. There is nothing you can do about it..

You want to protest like these people? Then get a domain and setup a web site.. Preferably offshore some where..

menahunie avatarHiDefHQ: giving your stupid avator explains why you have shit for brains.

Corporations need no warrants or and of the Constitutional requirements as a Government entity has to have.

Again you show your ignorance in regards to constitutional law and rights..

The Bill of rights have nothing to do with Corporate Entities and you spout about.
It refers to people:

http://www.ratical.org/co-globalize/BillOfRights.html

So now be a good little asshole and go play on the freeway..


It is also clear you haven't the ability to even understand simple English since I never mentioned anything you state..

No avatarClearly LOCOG wants to be the only party parodising itself, since its logo looks like Lisa Simpson giving head.

careiaglock avatarMenehunie is right. Might not have made the point clear enough for you but, the point was that businesses are not required to grant you constitutional rights to their services. They "reserve the right" to deny service to anyone for any reason all the time. The constitution does not force businesses to provide anything to anyone for any reason, only the government must grant you constitutional rights and privileges AS PUT FORTH IN THE CONSTITUTION. Suppose, for example, you want to exercise your right to free speech for by calling me on the phone. Your right to free speech does not mean I have to listen or that I can't hang up on you. It also doesn't mean if you abuse your right to free speech (by violating my right to happiness) over the phone that I can't report you to the the phone company causing them to possibly turn off your service. Contrary to popular belief there is no constitutional guarantee of phone service or for that matter internet either. People erroneously assume the constitutional rights they enjoy apply to them above all else. Imagine every person having the idea that their rights supersede everyone else's. Yeah that would work out! About piracy? I think if I pay for something it is mine to do as I please. If I buy a book can't I sell it or give it away? Why is a song or a movie any different? The creator should get paid when they sell their stuff, but after that it belongs to the person who bought it and all this other crap is just a way for greedy people to keep getting paid over and over for the same work. I wish my boss paid me for my work every time he used it.

OpenMinder avatar@HiDefHQ: You're an idiot. menahunie speaks plainly and truth-based mostly, which garners respect, so is that what threatens you or what you are after?

Job not accomplished: 0-1 for you.

Maybe if you kept busy getting properly informed you wouldn't have time to be bored.

You Brits have enough issues and problems to worry about and sort out...how do you have time to be critical of what lies beneath the matrix?
