Quote:Twitter just seems to have twisted itself in a pretzel with its tweet concerning the Nigerian government.

The government cut off Twitter in the country.



Twitter responded.

[twitterhttps://twitter.com/Policy/status/1401151115022979076][/twitter]

“We are deeply concerned by the blocking of Twitter in Nigeria,” Twitter’s Public Policy division tweeted, then went on:

“Access to the free and #OpenInternet is an essential human right in modern society. We will work to restore access for all those in Nigeria who rely on Twitter to communicate and connect with the world. #KeepitOn.”

Did you notice a small problem in their tweet? Did they just call access an “essential human right in modern society?”

So, I’m a little curious. Why is it an essential human right for people in Nigeria, but it isn’t an “essential human right” for some people on the right, including President Donald Trump?

Now, I don’t think it’s a “human right,” but if Twitter declares that it is, then removing a human right, as they often have done, is a real issue. It’s often done without real explanation and certainly without even-handedness. How can you do that with a “human right?” How can you remove a “human right” to begin with?





That’s the problem. It’s a “human right” unless, apparently, you say something that they don’t like. Then you’re gone — or what you had to say is gone or prevented from being spread. That’s not the way “human rights” work. They banned the url of the New York Post story that showed Joe Biden had lied about meeting with his son’s business associates. And they did it right before the election, stopping the spread of an important story by which the public could judge Biden as a candidate. They later admitted it was a mistake… but too late.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) brought them up short with what they just admitted.

Kind of amusing to see their reaction when a sovereign government "deplatforms" them.

hahahahahahahahahaha!!!
God I had forgotten about that skit.
Twitter does not get to declare itself a human right… yet, there are obviously events taking place in Nigeria that trample upon basic human rights, and Twitter is the medium that best exposes it.

Yea, they are exposing it while being hypocritical as hades while doing so.
What happens in Nigeria is neither Twitter's business nor ours.

Comrades.

So basically mark, you're confimring your socialist/communistic tendencies right there...

"Some Animals are more equal than others"..

You can't have it both ways... you cannot be a source for "basic human rights" and not grant those rights to _Everyone_.

Who is Twitter denying basic human rights?

They're denying basic human rights to whomever they're blocking on their platform... since TWITTER itself is the one being dumb enough to claim it's a human right. (I'm not sure which .. The pursuit of happiness?)

I just find it interesting how some people can have no regard for countries like Nigeria but be up in arms about countries like Israel.

You don’t say....
Well the same happened here. You damn communist want to take away my constitutional rights granted by God and the Filthy Jack took away our rights to free speech on the internet. Somehow I’m sure you can find some nuance.....
