@BCFerrys parody account back in action after brief suspension

A A

A parody BC Ferries Twitter account managed to get the last laugh.

The joke-filled account @BCFerrys was suspended yesterday by Twitter after the ferry corporation filed a complaint for infringing on their trademarked logo, an image of a dogwood flower on a green background.

But this morning the account was back in full regale with a new image of a dogwood emblem.

The account, which is anonymous, has been in existence since September 2011 and regularly tweets content that pokes fun at BC Ferries. The satirical account has more than 4, 100 followers that include BC Premier Christy Clark, local police departments and community members.

While the account appeared to be an obvious parody, the real ferry corporation had it shut down saying passengers and media were getting confused.

But BC Ferries was the first to welcome the spoof account back to Twitter today.
