Twitter just whacked the #HongKongAirport hashtag and scrubbed it from all lists
Why would Twitter be protecting an authoritarian situation where the Chinese government may be moving in on protestors?

Not to to mention that the hashtag was being used to update travelers on cancelled flights and the like.

If I didn't know any better, I'd suspect because they are run/operated by a bunch of leftists.

Because it shows China is getting whooped by Trump.

Jack and, by extension, Twitter gives lip service to anti-authoritarian positions when it involves Trump or Republicans and conservatives.

As progressives and a business wrought with progressive ideology, they likely support the Chinese government in its current endeavors.

Do they do business in China or does China have its own system, like they do with other online forums?

Didn't know weasel was synonymous with "traitor"

Check the trending section. It has been #2 all morning and magically, poof, it’s gone.

So China is doing what the MSM accuses Trump of wanting to do, and they are all silent? Checks out.

In a conflict between freedom and authoritarianism do we expect Twitter to support freedom.


They ban people for difference of thought.

Dude. This kind of personal attack is uncalled for. Shame on you. Don’t equate Dorsey with weasels.






Even weasels have feelings.
