Twitter Suspends Account Aiming to Curb Sexual Harassment at Tahrir Square
The illustrious twitchy team documented the many instances of sexual harassment at Tahrir Square in Egypt, which precipitated the creation of a twitter account aimed at organizing women and others against these attacks.
This is one example just posted today:
— Bel Trew – بل ترو (@Beltrew) November 27, 2012
Very soon after, the
@tahrirbodyguard account was suspended:
— Hope (@aecetia) November 27, 2012
— Evan Avery Birch (@brassiest) November 27, 2012
Did twitter think they violated the terms of service or were they asked to shut it down?
UPDATE: TwitchyTeam has more details.
