Unsafe Link Warning

Twitter censors all links to The Epoch Times: Growing alternative media site The Epoch Times reported that Twitter has censored all links to its site. Any link clicked from Twitter to go to the site or one of its stories directly presents users instead with a message that says "Warning: this link may be unsafe." The message continues, "The link you are trying to access has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially spammy or unsafe." The message provides several reasons for this determination, among them that the site being linked to could be stealing user's information, could be "spammy links that mislead people or disrupt their experience," or that the landing site could contain "violent or misleading content that could lead to real-world harm." The Epoch Times reported that they have appealed the determination but have not heard back from Twitter after 16 hours.
