Twitter shuts down 30 sites dedicated to saving politicians' deleted tweets
By James Vincent

Sometimes politicians (and others) Tweet stupid, ignorant or just plain horrible things. And when this happens, these tweets are often quickly deleted in order to avoid embarrassment or backlash from constituents. But Twitter is a public forum. And any politician who lacks the self-control to refrain from posting something on a public forum like Twitter, deserves a little criticism. Because of this, there are certain apps and web sites dedicated to saving all Tweets of politicians, even the deleted ones. No, especially the deleted ones. For some reason (that I’m sure has nothing to do with threatening pressure from lawmakers. I’m totally sure of it. It has nothing to do with that. Nothing. At all.) Twitter has decided to deny access to these services.

Twitter has shut down a network of sites dedicated to archiving deleted tweets from politicians around the world. The sites — collectively known as Politwoops — were overseen by the Open State Foundation (OSF), which reported that Twitter suspended their API access on Friday, August 21st. Twitter reportedly told the OSF that its decision was the result of “thoughtful internal deliberation and close consideration of a number of factors,” and that the social media site didn’t distinguish between politicians and regular users.

“Imagine how nerve-racking — terrifying, even — tweeting would be if it was immutable and irrevocable?” Twitter reportedly told the OSF. “No one user is more deserving of that ability than another. Indeed, deleting a tweet is an expression of the user’s voice.”

The US arm of Politwoops was shut down in June this year, but this new decision affects countries all over the world including Canada, Egypt, India, Ireland, South Korea, Tunisia, Turkey, Norway, and the UK. The Diplotwoops site, dedicated to archiving deleted tweets from diplomats, was also shut down, with the OSF noting that all the accounts had been “extensively used and cited by journalists around the world.” The organization’s director, Arjan El Fassed, commented: “What politicians say in public should be available to anyone. This is not about typos, but it is a unique insight on how messages from elected politicians can change without notice.”
