I will not allow this board to be politicized. I realize that Twitter exists in a political environment and that activity on its platform does influence both elections and legislative agendas. The company itself promotes its own political agenda in an effort to shape governmental policies that affect its business and economic prospects. It is an international company and occasionally adjusts its policies and practices in other countries to meet the political requirements of the country in which it is operating. Sometimes these “adjustments” may offend the sensibilities of those of us who are used to living in a free and open society. Unfortunately, it is a fact of life. Twitter is going to censor political posts that are overly aggressive and suspend accounts that were created for the specific purpose of disseminating information that is inaccurate. This is another fact of life. Twitter has the right operate as it wishes and to suspend the accounts of those individuals that have violated its Terms of Use. That is another fact of life. If Twitter’s practices and policies are unacceptable to its users, market forces will kick in and Twitter will lose both users and revenue. That is another fact of life.

As far as I am concerned, you are free to comment on and discus the above topics, as long as it is done in a civil and respectful manner. However, I would appreciate it if you could provide some context for your commentary.

Please avoid political posts that are short bursts of advocacy and unsupported by context. I want all of the participants (both active and lurking) to feel comfortable her and I am not going to let this board degenerate into a spitting match. There are other boards for those comments.
