I recently tweeted a link to my blog post that is unflattering to the proponents of climate science. I have 138,000 Twitter followers. My traffic from Twitter to my blog in a recent minute was only 14 people, while overall traffic from other sources was its usual robust self. For non-controversial topics, my Twitter-driven traffic for a tweet to my blog would be 200-300 per minute in the half-hour after a tweet. On this topic, it hovered between 10-14.
You can’t read this and then tell me with a straight that Twitter isn’t throttling Scott’s account. And you don’t have to agree with Scott’s political and social views in order to be disgusted with Twitter over this.
