Scientology vs. Twitter

John Dixon, a councillor in Wales, is facing a disciplinary hearing after $cientology bitched about a tweet Dixon made. The tweat read:

“I didn’t know the Scientologists had a church on Tottenham Court Road. Just hurried past in case the stupid rubs off.”

Then after Dixon learned $cientology began monitoring his Twitter account, he tweeted:

“Just realised the Scientologists are following me. Quick everyone, pretend you’re out.”

So now the cult is trying to get him fired.

Fortunately, a comedian has come to the rescue. Mark Thomas made a tweet of his own:

Anything that upsets scientology and therefore Tom Cruise is a good thing. #stupidscientology

It seems that once again, we’re seeing the Streisand effect, as Twitter users everywhere are expressing their dislike for $cientology using the hashtag #stupidscientology.
