British ‘hacker’ Lauri Love permanently banned from Twitter after anti-Nazi posts

Lauri Love, a British citizen accused of hacking FBI networks facing US extradition, has been suspended from Twitter, prompting a frenzy of online criticism claiming his free speech has been impinged upon and calls for his account to be reinstated.

The 32 year old is currently awaiting extradition to the US for allegedly hacking a number of government agencies, including the Federal Reserve, NASA, the US Army, the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency, the FBI, and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Love, who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome and depression, denies the charges and has appealed the decision, which will be heard in the High Court this summer.

The social media company banned the high-profile activist from Twitter on March 9, reportedly saying: “your account has been suspended for posting a violent threat. Posting violent threats is a violation of the Twitter rules.”
