Israel Buys Twitter Handle From Porn Entrepreneur

Twitter users following @israel were, until last month, not getting news from the Jewish State. Nor were they getting updates from the West Bank or Gaza Strip. They were, however, reading about a totally different kind of strip…as in striptease.

The owner of the handle since Twitter’s infancy, Israel Melendez told the New York Times his account went largely unused because he was getting nothing but angry anti-Israel and anti-Semitic comments in response to his tweets, when all he wanted to do was advertise his business enterprise. His Spanish-language Internet porn site, that is.

Enter the State of Israel, which decided last month to give Twitter a shot.
