Citing 'censorship' concerns, North Idaho internet provider blocks Facebook, Twitter

A North Idaho internet provider, Your T1 WIFI, confirmed it is blocking Facebook and Twitter from its WIFI service for some customers due to censorship claims.

Your T1 WIFI provides internet services to North Idaho and the Spokane area.

The move comes after Twitter and Facebook banned President Trump from their platforms due to incitement of violence and undermining the transition of power to President elect Joe Biden.



The article continues:




"It has come to our attention that Twitter and Facebook are engaged in censorship of our customers and information," an email to customers reads.

The service provider said the change would go into effect on Wednesday, Jan. 13.


The crazy is only just getting started.

While I appreciate the irony, you don't fight censorship with more censorship.

Bravo!!! Do we want this to turn into CCP? In all honesty? I mean I know some folks don’t like to read different opinions and facts but c’mon!

Do we really want to get to the point where Biden sends out a state sponsored message about his walk on the sun like Kim Jung Un did to his people? They believed it because they aren’t allowed to ingest any other information.

This is where this is going if the people don’t stop it.

Cut off enough of Facebook and twitters ad revenue and watch how quickly they about face. I bet those moral objections suddenly just melt away like buttah.

Agreed, but amusing nonetheless.

So they are restricting access to those that call and specifically request the sites to be blocked for them. Who in the hell has that much time in their hands?

A company that cares about quality service instead of quantity profits?

Censorship is censorship, dont understand how people just dont type Twitter or Facebook into the address bar, but we had 2020.

Yeah but isn't this the way to send Twitter and Facebook to LOL trash bin?

It will only mean anything if a good chunk of ISP in libtardtopia big cities banded together and blocked em. Even if it was just for a weekend, would maybe make one or two zombies that can still think a little to rethink their position.

I’m referring to what person willingly calls a cable company customer service for this? Have you ever called a cable/internet company customer service section? I rather get my teeth pulled!

Individuals should have the right and the privilege to trashbin Facebook and Twitter themselves.

Having an internet provider do it is no better than Twitter/Facebook banning Trump, Libertarians and conservatives.

Of course, the option is always. . "Just find another internet provider", as a snarky "free market" reply the evil left would use.

Yeah, I guess, not sure, IDK man! The chances of this having any kind
of amicable effect seem remote at best. I guess. IDK.

From the article in your post.


In an email posted to Twitter by a customer, Krista Yep, the company says it was fielding calls from customers asking that the service not display the sites on the internet, and that they didn't want their children to be able to access them.


I think this is a step in the right direction, though I am not sure if I support their reasoning.

Less internet and social media in most people's lives, and especially in the lives of our children, is not a bad thing.

But it should be the choice of the individual.

Not that I'm not enjoying the irony, but it's still wrong.

I’m torn. In a perfect world the ISP could censor them for 24 hours and they would be like... you know what? Being censored sucks. You’re right. We shouldn’t stifle each other’s opinions.

Though I know that won’t happen because the left wants to die on every damn hill they come across.

On the other hand the ISP is also a privately owned company and if they feel that strongly they have every right to serve what they wish, how they wish.

I’m in a quandary and it’s not a place I really like to be. But I’m also an honest person and the teenager in me is like nah, nah, na, boo boo.

Le Sigh.
