Twitter has launched a new way to punish users for bad behavior, temporarily "limiting" their account.
Some speculate these limitations are automatic based on keywords, but there is no hard evidence.
This would be fine if this was used uniformly to clamp down on harassment, but it appears to be used on people, simply for using politically incorrect language.
Take for example the Twitter user @Drybones5 who got his account limited after using the word "retarded."
He claims he got his account limited directly after saying retarded twice. The first time he called a Nintendo policy adding paid extra content to their new Zelda game retarded.
At time like these, I embrace the power of and. Evidence indicates they are venal AND stupid.
