An internet service provider (ISP) in North Idaho and Spokane, Washington, is telling customers they will block Facebook and Twitter after some customers called in to complain about censorship.
The ISP, Your T1 WIFI, emailed customers telling them they will block the two social networks from its WIFI service for some customers.
Customers can get access to the networks they want the company said after sending out a confusing email.
“We have the past couple days been fielding calls from customers voicing the concern that they do not want these sites allowed to be displayed on their internet feed to them and that they do not want their children to go to these sites,” the email sent to customers reads.
“There are too many people that have called for us to do one customer at a time so we will be blocking Facebook and Twitter and any other website that may also be censoring,” the email says.
“Our company does not believe a website or social networking site has the authority to censor what you see and post and hide information from you,” the email reads.
“We have made this decision to block these two websites from being accessed from our network.”
“We also don’t condone what Google, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook and Apple are doing either to Parler by trying to strong arm them into submission,” the email said.
