'Twitter Takedown' request

In response to the tweets over the weekend, we wanted to clear a few things up.

1. We're always keen to protect our brand and our copyright, like every consumer business. We often find people exploiting our name unfairly and we take action against them

2. That said, we have no intention of ever trying to censor opinion online (or elsewhere, for that matter). We're an entirely digital business and we believe the web is there for people to freely express themselves

3. So we accept that we were a little heavy-handed last week when we issued a Twitter Takedown notice for @BrandySnap's image, and having seen the full ‘Streisand Effect’ ourselves, we won’t be pursuing the notice
