Using Electronics Built By Slaves, Online Protesters Ding Twitter On Censorship Announcement


by Howard Schlumpinsky, TYDN Internet Affairs Writer
SAN FRANCISCO -- (TYDN) Armed with smart phones and computers built by third-world indentured servants and child slaves, the American online community is blasting Twitter for agreeing to censor tweets in foreign nations to comport with local law, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.


Twitter's announcement on its blog -- which was broadcast to the world via computers powered by oil produced by despotic regimes, and servers built by subsistence-wage workers in totalitarian nations -- was met with staunch disdain by much of the online American public.


"That Twitter would acquiesce to this grave human rights violation and agree to censor some tweets simply shocks the conscience," blogged Arnold Davidisnky, a 20-something San Francisco computer engineer adorned in designer clothing produced by overseas sweat shop workers as young as 7 years old.


Davidisnky's sentiment was seemingly shared internet wide.


"Twitter needs to set an example that human rights violations of censorship cannot be tolerated," tweeted somebody going by the Twitter handle @invisibleirony.



In a later tweet, @invisibleirony asked whether she should get the iPhone 4S or await for the iPhone 5.


Internet analysts said the protests underscored that Americans would not tolerate censorship human rights violations.


"That Twitter would tolerate human rights violations shows what a bogus and irresponsible corporate entity it is," said Geff Garvis, an online media critic known for his argyle socks produced by Chinese children.


The protest is being funded by a hastily-produced e-waste recycling program where protesters are collecting unwanted computers,  televisions and mobile-phones from participants in the Twitter anti-censorship movement nationwide. The used electronics will then be dumped in third-world neighborhoods where the waste will pollute water supplies while giving bare-footed children pennies-a-day scavenging jobs.


Twitter, meanwhile, declined to say in what countries and what words it would censor. But to meet the demands of the protest movement, it promised in a Sunday blog post to never censor tweets announcing Best Buy's weekend sales ad.

  2. Numerous taxpayers realize its routine method for preparers to exaggerate their tax write offs and credits with the intention to receive larger refunds. While many could very well be of the opinion that this method is "no big deal," the federal government obviously considers it is, and refers to this method tax scam. Don't let yourself be misled; it is definitely deemed tax fraud by the federal government. This type of filing is deemed thieving from the United States government, and therefore the IRS may well consider the fraud significant enough to bring to court. Never allow tax preparers persuade you to ultimately go along with this type of tax filing. Try to remember, they won't be required to pay because of it, you will certainly.

  3. Hey Stew, the IRS delivers hundreds of thousands of letters to taxpayers annually a result of the countless millions due to the IRS. It is necessary that all taxpayers acquiring correspondence via the IRS are aware of the letters they are getting in order that they know the proper reply to provide. Because of a lack of understanding the taxpayer may unintentionally start the collection procedure from the IRS. http://www.tax-defense-network-cpnotices.com/cp-notice/collection-process-notices/

  4. Tax Defense Network states the goal of a PPIA is to allow taxpayers with some ability to pay their tax debt an IRS program that they could benefit from.
