After Twitter took down an account devoted to protecting Julian Assange, the people fought back. It may seem small, but the larger picture is anything but.
CNN’s latest takedown of Julian Assange is rife with assertions that WikiLeaks worked in concert with Russian hackers. None of it is true, in fact, even the laziest Googling can disprove it.
@Unity4J, one of the largest Twitter accounts supporting Julian Assange has been taken down. The social media platform gave no reason for doing so.
It’s not just extreme examples like Julian Assange, the right to be heard, and the concept of dissent have been severely wounded.
Outside Julian Assange’s latest extradition hearing was a man in protest. But, he wasn’t taking the Americans to task, his target was the media sent to cover it.
