An Internet service provider (ISP) in northern Idaho and Spokane, Washington, has decided to block Facebook and Twitter for its customers after several people called to complain about censorship on the two platforms, according to Breitbart.
The ISP is T1 WIFI, and has confirmed that it will block Facebook and Twitter from its WIFI service for some customers starting Wednesday, according to KREM 2.
The move comes after Twitter banned President Donald Trump from its platform, and Facebook blocked the official POTUS account “indefinitely.”
“We pointed out that Twitter and Facebook are engaged in censoring our customers and our information,” reads an email to T1 WIFI customers.
The ISP added that it has received calls from customers about Facebook and Twitter. “In the last few days we have had calls from customers, who have said that they do not want these sites to be displayed in their internet feed and that they do not want their children to enter these sites “, continues the e- mail. The ISP explained that because there are too many customers requesting the blocking of sites, Facebook and Twitter will be blocked, unless they contact the company to request access.
The ISP also says it does not accept Facebook and Twitter, but also other big tech companies, to censor users or “try to exterminate their competition,” as in the case of the conservative Parler platform.
On a funny note, Twitter attacked Uganda on Wednesday for banning (at ISP level) any social networks before the elections. After banning Donald Trump, Twitter now complains that “public conversation” on social media platforms is more important than ever during the democratic process. “
