This is a big mistake on part of Twitter. It's one thing to have a country block Twitter because they fear what it's capable of in the hands of the people. It's another thing for Twitter themselves to block what the people are trying to say from reaching the masses. Twitter is keeping the real villains from appearing like villains. Twitter is now in the business of protecting the villains and monsters.
