This is an enlightment of what it means to be targeted. It cracks me up that Twitter says “harassment isn’t its responsibility, that it can’t “delete prejudice and hatred” from society.” and yet, it can outright, without warning, can TERMINATE my account after I shared posts they don’t care to be shared…links to YouTube videos that expose companies (Telecom) who are poisoning our children in their classrooms; speaking out, questioning, and whistle-blowing. Twitter doesn’t like me so they TERMINATED my account – one that I had since Twitter first Tweeted. Not that I care, but it is Internet censorship, it is part of being targeted for twenty-five years. Guess what? I’m not ready to put my whistle down. Laurie Penny authors this article and speaks of such atrocities in a much more subtle, less dramatic way that I ever could or will. I love her style, and only wish that someday I had her class and tact.
