Seems a new game is being played on the big Twitter board – bombing the hashmarks and grabbing the top of Twitter Trends. Over the weekend a crew of merry pranksters grabbed the top listing for #gorillapenis.
In a power play using social media – the flooding of Twitter was a great example of why what is considered important should not just be determined by anonymous hands up.
Operation Shitter the action was called and came along with a rather graphic graffiti drawing over the Twitter logo.
Not as clever as the Google bomb for GW Bush and miserable failure – this one even had instructions after your accounts were banned. Definitely a throw away effort – but would like to know what their intent was!
