Whats it all about ?
If you are not familiar with the idea of a #Tweetstorm – then please read the 1st post by Clicking here
But why a Tweetstorm ?
We want to make the 27th of January 2012 the day of the Perfect Storm and we need your help.
Our target , the Uk Home (wreckers) Office – who are playing God with peoples lives, and its their own Citizens whom they are targetting.
We NEED YOU! We need your assistance to let them know what you think about their aiding and abetting the US Prosecutors to inflict mental torture, to threaten UK citizens with Extradition and Jail Sentences for non Crimes and misdemeanours.
If you don’t know the background to the Extradition Act 2003 then visit http://freegary.org.uk where you will find reams of information about how the Act was brought into play and how it has affected one UK Family.
In essence, the Act was ‘secretly’ and ‘hurriedly’ passed into law directly after the attacks on the Twin Towers on 9-11.
Tony Blair used the Queens prerogative to rush the Law through the House of Lords and said his motives were to make it easier for ‘Terrorists’ to be extradited to the USA.
(At the same time many were angry at the U.S. Policy of ‘Rendition – where anyone, in any country could be picked up by American Snatch squads, thrown on a plane without any due process or legal case being brought for extradition – to be taken to Guantanamo where they were ‘questioned’ and as has emerged, tortured via waterboarding and stress positions).
What the Extradition Act 2003 appears to have done was open the door for wholesale ‘legal renditions’ of UK citizens, and unbelievably the US do NOT HAVE TO PROVIDE EVIDENCE of any crime.
Two cases in particular are of note:
Gary Mckinnon and Richard O’Dwyer.
Gary has Aspergers syndrome (I hate the term ‘he suffers from).
Gary is also a manic depressive and is currently living in abject fear, which non-sufferers could not comprehend fully. I also have manic depression/bipolar disorder and can sympathise as I have been on the verge of suicide many times.
Gary was arrested in the UK ten years ago and (without a lawyer present) admitted gaining access to US computer networks in search of UFO evidence and ‘alternative Energy’s’ which he believed the US suppressed.
The DPP said Gary had no case to answer, meaning what Gary did was NOT A CRIME in the UK. (The warrant was for Computer Misuse and if he had been charged here in the UK would have earned him a suspended sentence). However, shortly AFTER the Extradition Act 2003 the US made their move – using the new Act to apply for Extradition retrospectively. Gary has been fighting this for a decade.
The UK HOME OFFICE is complicit in the mental torture of Gary and his family.
The Home Secretary is due to rule on Gary’s medical Report soon. However, and this is the most recent of many medical Reports, the Home Office have insisted that the Expert employed by Gary’s legal team – ‘ be guided’ by one of their own experts’ which (as Garys mother told me last night, has her very scared once again.
The Home Office once again seems intent on destroying another UK families lives by rubber stamping the Extradition of a young man from Sheffield who hosted a site known as the T.V. Shack.
The Director of Public Prosecutions has written to the mother of Richard O’Dwyer and stated they found that Richard had commited no serious crime – yet London Police in conjunction with U.S. Prosecutors have obtained permission to Extradite him to the USA where he faces up to 5 years in prison.

The reach of US Authorities has now come into UK Citizens homes …and neither of the aforementioned are Terrorists, for whom this biased Extradition Act was intended.
- A self Hosted WordPress Blog
- A server at Home on which you have running or can install WordPress
Sign in at one of the Tweetstorm Blog Sites
As well as one of the above – you will also need a copy of the ‘Tweet Old Post’ plugin which you can download and upload to your plugin folder or which you can install directly from the PLUGIN settings page of your WordPress site.
A twitter account (obviously)
NOTE: While you could create an account just for the Tweetstorm – it would be preferable if it were an existing account because new accounts are most likely to be flagged as Spam accounts from my own experience.
Finally you will need to import a file which was created by @rt4freegary consisting of 1,000 (140 character) posts. A link to this file will be posted on Wednesday , by which time those taking part will have a WordPress blog set up and a twitter account which they can use to Post automatically to Twitter.
These ’140 character’ posts contain the tweets which will be sent on the 27th to the Home Office in Protest against the unfair Extradition Act 2003 – under which they are trying to extradite UK Citizens to the U.S. for minor offences here in the UK.
In order to avoid hitting the twitter ‘Limit’ imposed hourly – the file containing the tweets is organised into ‘scheduled’ posts – and will equate to around 45 tweets per hour.
You can expect that on occasion you will receive error messages saying you have hit the limit – and some tweets may not appear.
WE WILL NOT BE SPAMMING !
IT IS IMPORTANT YOU LET YOUR FOLLOWERS KNOW BEFOREHAND THAT YOUR TIMELINE ON THE #27TH IS BEING USED FOR THE #TWEETSTORM
Do not expect to get many personal tweets in between the scheduled tweets either ….
Of course some people out there have MULTIPLE twitter accounts and we do not encourage their use …but, we do not mind either.
The Goal here is 1,000,000 tweets which we can count and verify – we do this by the ‘posts’ on the word-press sites through which the tweets will be sent.
