Maybe (although he didn't unfollow any of us), but that's not the case. I'm
not raising [consipracy] possibilities. I'm saying that the fact that this
is not transparent (even at the level of finding out WHETHER something was
blocked) is dangerous.
Also - in the other incident (the bitcoin one) there's no such explanation,
and I'm not "raising possibilities" that twitter has something against a
lowly merchant. Maybe it's a bug, maybe it's malicious flagging. The fact
that we don't KNOW scares me because of the implications of this in the
I believe twitter are well meaning people, and wouldn't want to support
totalitarianism any more than the "founding fathers" of TCP/IP did (and as
we know - they were a bit sloppy in avoiding that), but it's a serious
problem and it should be addressed.
