Julian Assange Berates Twitter; Tweets About Quest For A ‘Cryptographic Alternate’ To It

Published on 9 October, 2017 at 12:47 pm By

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has hit out at Twitter, claiming that the micro-blogging site has been censoring comments published on its feed. In claiming so, he has also threatened to quit Twitter.

On October 6, the self proclaimed “political refugee” took to his Twitter account to announce that some of the pictures posted by him have been marked as “sensitive media” by the Twitter authorities. Thereafter, he told his 440,000 odd followers that he is eager to use a “decentralized/cryptographic alternative” to the social media favorite.

He also accused Twitter of following a US appeasing politics, thereby curbing the freedom of expression of thousands like him, who wish to take help of the micro-blogging site to express their personal views. He wrote:

Twitter’s freedom of expression has been on an inexorable decline. It’s enslaved to its US jurisdiction and politics.

In derogating Twitter, he also took a dig at Facebook, saying that though Twitter is much better than Facebook as a platform to vent out one’s expression, it is definitely no more the perfect place to do so.

Here’s what Mr. Assange tweeted:

Mr. Assange also complained how Twitter has been censoring his posts, for example, his recent image of a Catalonian independence demonstration.

Mr Assange tweeted Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, with an image of the site’s “sensitive media” warning, that requires a user to click through before viewing the posts or pictures.
