My latest #Ghomeshi tweet lasted all of 37 minutes on the #Ghomeshi hashtag before Twitter made it disappear. (See @DonaldBestCA for my twitter feed)

During that short 37 minutes, my tweet was re-tweeted 32 times and then… nothing. My tweet disappeared from the ‘Top’ tweets, leaving as the current ‘top’ a tweet by Chatelane editor Sarah Boesveld that has only been retweeted 24 times in in 16 hours.

So let’s be clear…

My tweet = 32 re-tweets in 37 minutes, then removed by Twitter censors.

Sarah Boesveld’s tweet = 24 re-tweets in 16 hours, but mine is gone and hers is the ‘Top’ #Ghomeshi hashtag tweet.

Obviously, my Tweet did not meet the political and social opinion test by Twitter thought police – even if the public loved it.

What did Sarah Boesveld say that Twitter approves of? Here it is…

What did I say that was re-tweeted 32 times in 37 minutes but was then taken down by the Twitter censors?

Here it is…

Jian Ghomeshi Tweet 2#Ghomeshi court saga ends with a whimper. A lesson for all lying victims who feel the truth is not enough under oath.
