Perhaps like me you've been following the saga about Recruiting Animal's Twitter account @animal being hacked. His name was stolen and taken over by some random coder/programmer named "Mikey"
The Twitter handle thief replaced @animal with some hideous, unwieldy and wacky new account name @animaliaaa2

Though I've sporadically listened to his blogtalkradio show, I don't officially know the real @animal - we've never met, never spoken live and only communicated via twitter and exchanged an email or two. I have no stake in the matter, but feel that any of us dealing with the same issue would appreciate the help and support of our peers to get this resolved.

For those of you that are active on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest or any other online venue, how about taking a quick moment to help "Liberate Animal"? If you have any internal connections at Twitter that might care to get involved that would be great too!
A few quick and easy things you can do are:
