A Michelle Malkin owned blog about Twitter posts an article about something possibly outrageous that occurred on twitter. You can't get much more non-newsworthy than this. Well done, Fark.

qorkfiend: HotWingConspiracy: meat0918: mr.Curmudgeon: Liberals want to shut down free speech rights. The "report for spam" attacks today have proven it. #TwitterGulag

#TwitterGulag? SERIOUSLY?

Goddamn it. The first amendment protections to free speech don't protect a PRIVATE corporation from removing whatever the hell they want, inappropriate or otherwise.

A fark mod could come in and delete this comment "just because" and I wouldn't have any legal recourse via the first amendment.

Conservatives seem to be advocating for nationalizing Twitter.

No, no. They want the small-government solution; use the government to make Twitter be nicer to them.


I demand the government prevent people from disliking what I say! To do otherwise is censorship of the foulest breed! If people are not forced to listen and repeat everything I say, my rights are being stifled by the 9bama Islamofascist Empire. Do we really want a president who bases everything on muslim sharia laws, with no respect to God or Christ at all?

NeverDrunk23: Doesn't it lonely constantly putting yourself on that cross?


You know how some people gauge their ear lobes to an half an inch or more and put a big metal "tunnel" inserts in them?

These people have done something similar to their hands and feet. It makes setup and takedown far less painful than one might imagine.

hahaha @freeSpeech4MeNot4Thee

drtfa but i think the point is 'liberals' trying to silence those they disagree with, when liberals advocate 1st amendment values of freedom of speech, expression, and diversity of opinion.

Sort of like when a conservative gets caught with a gay ladyboy hooker in a public rest room after advocatimg family values and man/woman biblical marriage.

You know, hypocrisy

You realize that reporting someone as spam or complaining is also free speech and does not make you an authority with the power to "silence" someone.

if you want to experience Dana loesch go to a bar, find a very hot women, then ask her to talk in depth about politics. chances are she will not have a clue and just say what comes to the top of her head with out any regard for it if is truthful or accurate. That is the "dana loesch experience." So if you want to experience the ride it's pretty easy.

saying it is one thing, actively and deliberately getting someone censored is another

if they want to rely to the guy and call him names, fine. If they want to repost what he says and call him a moron, fine.

But falsely claiming he is spam to get him shut down is going over a line. If it causes him any monetary loss (unlikely) it could even be actionable.

What if the conservative activist is lying in his twitter account? If Dana Loesch is defending him, I can only assume he is. Then that content can, by some definitions, actually be considered spam.

Guys, you should not take Citrus Shindig seriously, and here is why.

Look at his name.

Now, think of what some synonyms for that name might be.

Yep, pretty scared that a position on which 98% of climatologists agree has a large minority of morons, such as yourself, believing it to be false.

coeyagi:
What if the conservative activist is lying in his twitter account?

He wasn't. That's the thing about Twitter - all of the posts are right out there for everyone to see. You can go back and see that his posts were pretty mild, each time he gets reinstated. That's one way you can tell he wasn't lying: Twitter admins can go back and look at old posts - even deleted ones.

On the other hand, the lefties who were getting him banned were also pretty forthright about their actions. For example, one of the complaining accounts had zero followers, was following only this one guy - and bragged about it in that Twitter feed. Yep - they've been making up brand new accounts just to get people they disagree with banned. And they're dumb enough to admit it, on Twitter.

They've also been doing it with a number of other right-wingers, and were successful in censoring a dozen or so Twitter users who had the audacity of saying something they couldn't counter.

A couple of the lefties have already had their accounts banned by Twitter admins for their actions, and it looks like a lot more will in the near future. You see, that flagging action is also a permanent record, and it's easy enough for Twitter admins to look at the offending accounts and see that the original complaint was unfounded.

There's another Twitchy post with more detail: Here
