Twitter Censorship Could Ban 10 Million Users
Twitter is one of the last ‘Free Speech’ beacons in the social media world. But if you believe the folks on Wall Street, that’s about to change.

See, part of Free Speech includes the ability for adult film stars to openly discuss their lives, adventures, and work. However they want to. But, since some uptight ad agencies have recently thrown a fit over their paid Tweets ending up next to porn Tweets, some are suggesting Twitter might pull the trigger on banning over 10 million accounts.
Yup, the ‘Free Speech’ beacon might get put out.

For a social media site to consider blanking out that many people, they have to be pretty serious. Considering the site added 14 million accounts over Jan-Feb-March, that’s a big chunk. But it could actually get bigger. How many people do you think have Twitter accounts ONLY for the porn stars? How big of a backlash will this cause for people who truly believe in Freedom of Speech? I guess time will tell, but be aware, the Twitter you love may not be the same Twitter in a week or two.
