Our latest podcast starts a little slow, but I think we make up for it! We’re back to a full team and ready to pick apart Apple’s newest releases, RIM’s latest breakup, and Superman becoming much more realistic.
Twitter blocking a feed has nothing do to with the First Amendment of the US Constitution – even if they blocked a US feed. The actual text of the first amendment is …
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
It does not say …
Twitter shall make no law [take no action?] … abridging the freedom of speech.
So – twitter is 100% free to do what they please with regards to the first amendment. Twitter is providing a service and if they want to remove the service to a select or group of individuals – fine by me.
To me, free speech without consequence (ie your comment re trolls in real life) is just as bad as I am just removing your right to free speech (wasn’t it you guys that talked about the troll that had is real life name and address publicly exposed?).
