3.7: Backtracking

December 19, 2012

Speaking of questionable tweets, Gizmodo reports that Anonymous’s Twitter account, @YourAnonNews was suspended for blatantly violating Twitter’s Terms of Service, but was later unsuspended for whatever reason.

My personal guess is that rather than stick to its guns, Twitter caved under pressure from Anonymous’s followers, of which there were 700,000. I think less of Twitter now, which is a shame because I love using the service.

As a sidenote, from now on whenever Twitter suspends an account for violating the Terms of Service and doesn’t unsuspend it, we can safely call out the company for hypocrisy. All accounts should be treated equally, without question. Twitter should be ashamed of itself.
