to be fair, because they've fought those very attempts in court when
they had the option in the past. not that willing to do business in some
states is suspect, but there are examples in others where not only did
they go to court, but they warned the users as well.

regardless, to stop using twitter won't be an answer for many. they will
need to go wherever their peers/audience goes. i've been locked out a
number of times myself. my only issue with twitter is how long it has
taken them to unlock the account by sending me the confirmation e-mail.
