In fact, some people preferred the hacked content.

The childish comments posted by the people who hacked the BNP Twitter account are the most sensible things ever posted on it.

Update: In an interview with BuzzFeed, the hacker Anon_0x03 said that they had targeted the BNP's account because it was "fun".

"It's just like another target to own, nothing special," they said. "We didn't know about BNP's ideologies, we only found out when my colleague spoke with another user and she/he told him about it."
