The hacktivist’s most popular Twitter account, @youranonnews, with 750,000 followers has just been suspended for violating Twitter’s privacy guidelines.

This, following the “dropping dox” procedure against the Westboro Baptist Church.

Thankfully, YourAnonNews is now tweeting from their backup page: @YANBackup
