Twitter public policy - on Uganda

Twitter Public Policy

Ahead of the Ugandan election, we're hearing reports that Internet service providers are being ordered to block social media and messaging apps. We strongly condemn internet shutdowns – they are hugely harmful, violate basic human rights and the principles of the #OpenInternet.

 
Access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.
 
Mmm, where was twitter bruceQ on this on?

Yours, actually. I’ve never favored anything but an open internet. 

But have never sanctified or favored sedition either. 

You are aware that if the big outfits are broken up, as they damn well should be, that the little newbies will still be subject to a certain degree of regulation. AND, the point you are seriously missing, will be vulnerable to the whims of capitalism and free enterprise. Which is what is in play with the refusal to sanctify and stand blind to sedition that we have seen these past few days.

Who said it? “Get some new material.”.

You favored sedition the whole summer. Hypocrat. Now that you are the man you act like you have the right top stand there with your foot on the throat of anyone who disagrees with you. Then you can throw the crumbs to those you see fit.

“favored sedition all summer”?

Lets see...I casted a vote in November. Sent some money to a (losing) candidate in a U. S. House race and to a couple of local candidates.

That was my total contribution to anything that has happened.

Oh, wait, I had a couple of signs in our front yard.

And did some volunteer relief work and donated some foodstuffs back in late May and early June here in my hometown.  But that had nothing to do with any elections, or overthrowing a government.

You were totally silent when St John church was set on fire. You're only complaint was when Trump drove the rioters from the area. You and the rest of the hypocrats were in full throated support of over throwing the police force.

Liar, when you asked for trump and pence to be simultaniously removed and a new election held it was a call to overthrow the elected government.

I need an explanation on that.

I didn’t vote for them. As I would have a number of Republicans against the worst candidate, other than Dennison, to run as a major party nominee since Wm. McKinley did at the turn of the previous century.

I didn’t discourage impeachment, although you’ll find in the archived posts here I didn’t support it. Said so numerous times. Thought those 2 were doing a good enough job of convincing voters not to vote them back in on their own.

What I damned well didn’t do is claim their having been elected as fraudulent,. I understood full well how they had gotten the votes in the places they did that were most important to their victory.  That, as much as anything, out of understanding how and why someone wouldn’t vote for their lousy opponent. 

Didn’t propose sedition and/or treason as a means of removing them.

You by your own words and,now, revelations here have sanctified and, now, supported it.
