Just for the record, I think I’ll leave this here. For the first time that I am aware of, Twitter has removed a series of Tweets I left behind as replies.
The thread in which this happened is HERE
This is a screenshot of what leads the thread:
These are screenshots of what has seemingly disappeared, with the exception of lollydoodle’s and Dave J’s Tweets (– though I don’t appear to be able to see Dave J’s Tweet anymore, as of 4h49 p.m., 9 Feb 2022):
Does Twitter censor? Apparently it does. But you knew that already.
(Admitedly, there may be something I don’t understand about the way Twitter ‘trees’ replies. But I’m pretty sure this is a blatant act of making actual information disappear.)
Norman, you may already know by now. Twitter shut down the Truckers.
Tubularsock says boycott Twitter and any other form that censors ANYBODY.
Tubularsock can turn off anything that upsets his tiny little brain! Fuck’em!

Yo, my favorite pointy headed friend,
I didn’t know about the Truckers being shut down and out of Twitter. I know they’re active on Facebook. On the other hand, the leader of the Convoy still has an account on Twitter that your can find HERE. But maybe you are talking about another group?
As for being upset, not at all. I just find it strange that on a public platform, information that can inform consent in regard to a medical procedure can be suppressed without any apparent legal repercussions. I may be wrong about that; it’s something I need to look into. There is no question in my mind that if Tweeter is suppressing information — and it is — then it is responsible for harms. There should therefore be liability.
