Joshua Bonehill-Paine revealed on his blog he was arrested and then bailed on Friday - but the conditions of his release prevent him from attending the planned anti-Jewish in north London march next month.
The 22-year-old was held at his home in Somerset on suspicion of racially aggravated harassment and malicious communications, in connection with a stream of racist tweets sent to Labour MP Luciana Berger.
He put a picture of a police form online which said he was 'not to enter the area contained within the M25 motorway except to answer police bail', and not to contact Ms Berger.
In the reasons for the condition it says: "The offence related to organising an anti-Jewish march in the London areas and targeting an MP at Westminster."
The planned march, called 'Liberate Stamford Hill', is organised for March 22 - meaning Mr Bonehill-Paine will seemingly be unable to attend when it starts on Clapton Common.
Police in Hackney confirmed on Twitter he had been arrested, adding: "Any breach of those bail conditions will be dealt with appropriately and proportionately."
After it was revealed the far-right nationalist was planning on marching through Stamford Hill earlier this month it was instantly condemned - with north London anti-fascists planning a counter-demonstration.
Mr Bonehill-Paine criticised 'Shomrim', the community Jewish police force, and said he wanted to 'liberate' the Hackney community - which has a large orthodox and Hasidic population.
