Disgraced Harrow Council Hides Twitter Activity After Animal Porn Exposure

harrow_council_logoDisgraced Harrow Council, exposed yesterday by iharrow for following a porn account on Twiiter (and we’re not just talking mucky pictures – it included shocking pictures involving animals) has started to batten down the hatches.

To prevent residents finding out what other purveyors-of-porn that the council’s Community Champions team might be watching, whilst funded by council-tax payers,  they’ve now locked down the privacy on their account to hide which other accounts they’re following. This is a fairly involved step to take – not merely a case of ticking a few boxes in the settings page, for example, and illustrates that somebody at the disgraced council knows what they’re doing (or, more likely, they’ve paid yet another consultant to do it for them).

What does this mean? Has the council cleaned up it’s act? Or has it opted to continue following animal-porn sites, but away from the public gaze?

No doubt there will be much more to come on this over the next few days, once we discover what other perversion the council might be into.

The screen clip below shows their current Twitter page; the red arrow shows where the ‘following’ numbers would be – as you can see, it’s hidden.

    Should we be worried about all this? Should we be telling harrow council what we think? Or are they blindly following people that follow one of their accounts?

      I’m still waiting for a comment back from the council as to what’s going on. I did call the press office earlier, and left a voicemail, but I’ve had no response. The council has told me previously they won’t respond to my requests, so I’m not expecting anything back, but I do at least have to give them the opportunity to comment. Blindly following people is fine, I guess, but an animal-porn account? When you (presumably, if you’re in Harrow) and I are paying them to look at porn? That doesn’t sit okay with me…

        I am in Harrow and completely agree with you. Just wondering if this person managing the twitter account just started following people back that was following them or Harrowsites. Or actually chose to follow this site. I noticed they are following me and a friend of mine, even though neither of us follow them.

        So am wondering how they chose who to follow.

        It was a disgusting account and most people would not realise Harrow Council was.following it as most people like myself don’t check who they are following. So well done on your vigilance.

    Wow! You couldn’t make it up!!! Animal porn on a council website. Well spotted Paul. instead of refusing to speak to you they should be thanking you on bended knees for alerting them and also not delay your FOI request for so long that you lose the will to live.

    Well thank god Denmark outlawed bestiality & animal brothels earlier this year otherwise they would of probably followed them as well,need to be more careful who or what they follow although the account vanished for a while today it is back up so worth keeping an eye on.

    Harrow Council

    I would be worried about the carrier pigeons safety given their interest in bestiality! Maybe smoke signals from burning library books.
