    Funny thing that happened to me today is… I signed up for my very first Twitter account and immediately after i checked the sign up button I got a message saying i was locked out of the account. I sure don’t know what that’s all about, but it’s very strange!! Getting locked out b4 even using my 1st Twitter profile. What a turn off for me! I’ll stick with Instagram!

    Anything that i wish to post in regards to info on the Pharma Druggsters , Twitter will not let me post ! Anyone else having this challenge ? I think it,s time to say to Twitter , ” Go Fucketh Thou Self , I have had enough of ur Censorship “

    i have a friend with a very controversial book which Hollywood borrowed ideas from, creating some of the biggest hits Hollywood ever had, and guess what, he can’t sign up for a Twitter account. I had to see him trying, but no matter what he did, error message popped up. So you’re right, censorship is going on in very sneaky ways the public isn’t aware of.
