ITV NEWS reporting now - 'Find Ben Needham' Twitter blocked by official 'Find Madeleine McCann' account

'Find Ben Needham' Twitter blocked by official 'Find Madeleine McCann' account


The official Twitter account backing the search for Madeleine McCann has blocked the account which supports the campaign to find Ben Needham.

Administrators of @FindBenNeedham discovered they had been blocked from viewing the account yesterday. The campaign's Greek account @findbengreek has also been blocked.


In these excerpts from a post yesterday, the person in charge of the @findmadeleine account, said, "This is the last time I will address this issue. Gerry and Kate do not use social media and have asked me to manage the social media accounts for our campaign. In the past couple of weeks, there has been a concerted effort to get people to stop looking for Madeleine. Some argue the search costs too much, others say it's hopeless. We don't believe the search for Madeleine is hopeless and putting up polls asking if the search should stop is not only crass, it's cruel. How can one put a price on the life of a child?With that being said, I, and I alone, have made the decision to block ANYONE who thwarts the search for Madeleine via social media--whether that be with running commentary on the investigation, posting negative comments about the search/investigation/cost, or saying Madeleine is a lost cause. We believe Madeleine is alive and we have great faith in The Met. If you cannot be supportive of the search for Madeleine, please unlike/unfollow our social media pages. We want people who are hopeful and actually care about Madeleine being found supporting us. WE NEED YOUR HELP to find her and we don't want negative comments filling our feeds."

Ben Needham went missing on July 24 1991 from the Greek island of Kos, There have been no sightings of the 21 month old since.

Madeleine McCann was three years old when she disappeared from her bed in a holiday apartment in Portugal in May 2007.





After recent events on Twitter, namely being blocked by the Official Find Madeleine Campaign we felt it only fair to have our say. The campaign blocked us due to "the type of people who follow us and the people we follow." Just to clear we follow everyone back who follows us out of courtesy. Every follower means support for Ben - nothing more. Admin.

Please read the following statement direct from Kerry Needham . Please do not make this a war between missing people's families. The ONLY reason Kerry ever mentions the Mccanns is outlining the differences in government backing. Her problem is with the authorities NOT the Mccanns and their search for their daughter which we FULLY support.

Find Ben Needham account unblocked by Find Madeleine campaign
Administrators of the Twitter account set up to help the search for Ben Needham say their access to Madeleine McCann's official page has been restored.

Earlier today we reported that @findmadeleine had blocked @FindBenNeedham from following them on the social media site, because @findmadeleine did not approve of some personal accounts followed by Ben's campaign group, which took an anti-McCann stance

There was a great deal of discussion on social media about the decision. A comment posted by @findmadeleine earlier defended the move, with the person running the site saying they had every right to block anyone "who thwarts the search for Madeleine via social media."

Ben's mum Kerry said earlier : "Ben's campaign has never been anti McCann - we can't help the fact that some members of the public give their opinion about the McCann case just the same as people give their opinion about Ben's case."

Administrators of Ben's Twitter page now say that access from their UK and Greek accounts has been un-blocked.

So let me get this straight - Ben's campaign got blocked because they were "thwarting the search for Madeleine"???
Too late to unblock it now! The damage has been done!

They sure do Chatelaine. I'm surprised they ran with it at all as it is showing TM in a negative light.

I'll keep an eye on the OFM Facebook page to see if anything appears there about the Twitter account.

Ah, the classic response of the bully. Turn around and feign victimhood. So transparent.

They and their supporters are the worst bullies and abusers on the whole of twitter. I have been collecting their gems for years. Some of it would turn your hair white.

Why 'within the next few days.'? Why not immediately? Or are they hoping people will beg them to stay?

It is definitely a ruse Bampots! @findmadeleine twitter account is mostly dormant - they only use for retweeting things like missing people Big Tweet, etc. It is not an active account in the sense of others, like SafarSara for example.

This 'strop' is to get sympathy back towards themselves after their blocking the BenNeedham account fiasco, it infuriates them that Kerry is far more popular than themselves.

Should add that from the perspective of 'finding Madeleine' or indeed any other child, it is a pretty drastic thing to do.   How can they conduct a 'search' without a presence on twitter?  Have they given up on Madeleine?

A clue might lie in one of the people who favourited Sonia's documentary tweet - it is mindblowing Shocked
