Lennon would have protested against Iraq war through Twitter, says Ono

London: John Lennon’s wife Yoko Ono has revealed that if the Beatles singer had been alive he would have protested against the Iraq war through social networking sites.

To mark John`s 70th birthday Yoko recalled the details of the peace campaigner who was shot dead by a deranged fan.

"When we did our bed-ins for peace against Vietnam the world just laughed at us,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.

"But now 99 pc of the world is taking a stand against wars like Iraq and Afghanistan. John would have done that but he``d have loved the new communication media.

"He would have been writing statements and sending them out to the world as a blogger and a tweeter," she added.
