Ok ok, I have to admit that Google and Twitter have a point by claiming this account om Twitter. Still it's funny how I was able to use this account for a long time to share doodles (in Dutch) until Twitter sended me a message that I was violating a trademark (which is true ofcourse).

So now Google started to use this account for them self,
