BNP leader Nick Griffin's twitter account hacked... for "no political reasons"

The BNP leader’s Twitter stream is now full of nonsense and offensive tweets.

BRITISH NATIONAL PARTY MEP Nick Griffin has had his Twitter account hacked – with the hacker saying the move was for “no political reasons”.

The controversial MEP’s Twitter stream is now one long stream of nonsense and offensive tweets, many of which are NSFW.

The hacker also posted what it claims is Griffin’s mobile phone number. One tweet calls David Cameron a “b**tard”.

Griffin’s website, nickgriffinmep.eu, and communications.bnp.org.uk have also been hacked.

@Anon_0x03 describes themselves as a “hacktivista” and claims to be a member of Anonymous Operations.

Griffin has more than 28,000 followers on Twitter.
