Dairy farmer puts photos on Twitter of life on the farm – gets hacked by vegans
Andrew Campbell is a dairy farmer in Middlesex, Ontario, Canada. (only about 180 miles east of Lansing) He decided at the beginning of the year to post daily photos of life on the farm on Twitter using the #farm365 hashtag.
Apparently some people had a problem with that and swamped the hashtag with photos and negative comments about dairy and livestock farmers. According to the Ottawa Sun, "many suggested it was 'immoral' for farmers to use 'non-human animals'".
Anyway, Andrew's gained a thousand Twitter followers in the last few days because of the publicity. Including me. Here's the story.
