A message to our readers (updated):
Tom Nelson needs our help…
From Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller
“For the second time within two weeks, another global warming skeptic blogger has had his Twitter account suspended, this time repeating profanity used by a NASA climate scientist — and no the scientist did not get his account suspended.
“On April 1st, Twitter locked the account of science blogger Tom Nelson , who runs the blog the “Hockey Schtick.” Twitter told Nelson to delete a tweet that contained the word — are you ready for it? — “crap” or else his account would not be unlocked. Nelson then posted the “Delete Tweet” screen to his blog, after which Twitter promptly suspended his account. As of April 2nd, Nelson’s account was still suspended.”
From Watts Up With That?
“Not being able to win arguments on merits, a complaint was apparently made to ban/suspend Tom Nelson from Twitter for using the very same description of a graph that climate scientist Gavin Schmidt made.”
And from Twictim Steve Goddard:
Tom Nelson has been booted off twitter for using the same word Gavin did.
And from Bishop Hill:
“I must say I am watching the behaviour of the Twitter management carefully, as it looks somewhat alarming. As Anthony reports, Tom Nelson has been suspended for asking if a Katharine Hayhoe graph was “crap”. That’s asking, not saying. Meanwhile Gavin Schmidt describes a different graph as crap (that’s saying, not asking) and it’s all fine and dandy.”
Gator writes: They have changed the complaint form since Tony’s (Steven Goddard) suspension, but after some digging I was able to find good contact info for those who do not have an account:
Twitter Corp.’s twitter accounts: @Twitter @Support
Flood those fascists with righteous indignation.
Thanks to Gator and the rest of the climate community for standing behind Tom Nelson on this important issue. Visit Tom Nelson’s blog for more and new information as it comes in. As of April 2, he’s still suspended.
