Twitter suspends the abused, not the abusers

Well colour me shocked, shocked! A twitter account set up to target transphobia has been reported for abuse and shut down by twitter.

Channelling Flying Rodent, I’m reminded of this quote: “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.” Channelling Tim, you shouldn’t assume someone similar to you will end up using whatever new powers you create.

If you create new powers to block or ban or anything they’re going to be used by the powerful.
