Twitter censors top Jian Ghomeshi #Ghomeshi tweet by yours truly
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…
