A Twitter account alleged to be the official Gary Glitter account has been wiped after announcing a tour and new album only yesterday.
@officialglitter has had nearly all of its post removed with one from Jan 20 supposedly from Glitter saying 'looking forward to promoting #GlitterTour here'.
Yesterday the site mentioned a new album titled 'Still Shining' was also on the way but today there is no sign of that post.
On @GaryGlitter another post, allegedly from Glitter, says 'I'm not sure I'm going to continue. Lots of threats to kill me in the past 24 hours'.
Neither @OfficialGlitter or @GaryGlitter have been authenticated as real by Twitter.
However, NME are reporting a Tumblr post saying 'Let me say that this account does not belong to convicted paedophile Gary Glitter. I am deeply disgusted by what Gary Glitter has done in his life and am not condoning, making light of or glorifying child abuse. His crimes are unforgivable and chilling'.

That Tumblr post has also been removed.
It continued, 'I set this twitter account up as a social experiment to highlight the dangers and safety of children using the social networking sites and to discover and question public morality. It's been an interesting and eye-opening experience for me.'
