It might be stupid, and I know it’s not going to have a real impact or effect in twitter, the world or anything in general.
But today it’s my day without twitter or as we say there, it’s my #DayWithoutTwitter & #DiaSinTwitter . Because we congratulate ourselves for our greatness and freedom of expression and our extraordinaries developed countries and then shit like this happens. I can understand it from other companies, hell! I even expected something like that from Amazon, but from Twitter? No way.
But they did it. Twitter excluded the #wikileaks hashtag from Trending Topics. And how was that fair? Why did I have to care about Robin and other stupids topics when the world Net was buzzing with new of Wikileaks and Mr. Assange imprisonment — which might or might not be fair and he might or might not be guilty, but that’s not the point —
The point is the censorship we have been forced to submit to.
There are a few things more aberrant than censorship (one being violation of any kind, but as I’ve said that’s another topic altogether) and for that reason, #twitteroff the whole day. Might be difficult, of course! I’m bloody addicted, but well… We still have tumblr, and FB, and LJ, and blogger and the whole Net for ourselves.
So #DayWithoutTwitter for good!
