it's going to be fun when they realise that it's far too late for any attempt at control. They have lost so much trust that they will never get back, the only people they are really threatening are established online personalities and their own private pay days. They refuse to accept these celebs are a result, not a cause

I don't think twitter cares about making money or accomplishing anything particular other than basic gatekeeping.

Nothing is going to be 'fun' about watching them exist now or in the future. They're an unfeeling, deepstate entity and for every one thing they can't suppress they've adequately suppressed 100 others.

How can twitter shut down other websites that don't belong to twitter?

Can't have those pesky statements getting on record now can we. Facts are bigoted, holding people accountable to their action and lies and exposing the truth via logic- PATRIARCHY!!!

Don't let them pretend this is just about politicians.

Twitter has been doing the same thing to tweetsave for a couple years now.

Twitter shuts down 30 sites dedicated to saving politicians' deleted tweets - The Verge

'Twitter has shut down a network of sites dedicated to archiving deleted tweets from politicians around the world. '

'Twitter reportedly told the OSF. "No one user is more deserving of that ability than another. '

'The sites — collectively known as Politwoops — were overseen by the Open State Foundation (OSF), which reported that Twitter suspended their API access on Friday, August 21st. '

'Jules Mattsson, who runs the account, told The Guardian: "It’s a terrible shame that Twitter has made this decision. '

'The organization's director, Arjan El Fassed, commented: "What politicians say in public should be available to anyone. '

This has been an automated message.

You know when I was a kid sometimes I'd get a little arrogant, it was then that the old man would say you're getting a little too big for your britches boy and WHOP, right back to earth I'd come.

It's going to get a little hard for tweeter in the very very near future when no one uses it.

I was watching a podcast about those people who used to protest soldiers funerals. That bitch loves twitter. Of course she grew up sheltered so I give her a pass. You know the church? Everyone hates them. The original "god hates fags" people. I can't remeber what they're called.

This article is over 2 years old. Twitter rolled back the policy a few months after they announced it. Of course, Twitter is best left ignored and unused.

sigh Time to spin up a virtualized server with a restful api that connects to a headless browser setup to save and monitor politicians tweets.

Thank you kindly.

Buzzwords are, by the nature of the thing, meaningless. At least three people understood the concept.

Digital Ocean, a file with CRUD functions and Selenium. You could even use an old style text file to store the Politicians to follow.

They revoked their API license, so they will no longer to automatically interact with Twitter to collect data.

I wonder if they could create a bot that can just screen shot every tweet so that they could save them without needing api access.

that's not taking a website down, but rather disabling an indexing feature which can be substituted.
