PRIEST RIVER, ID — (01-12-21) — A small Idaho internet provider based in northern Idaho, announced late Monday that it will block Facebook and Twitter from its WIFI service for some customers due to claims of conservative censorship.
The decision announced by Your T1 WIFI, came after Twitter and Facebook banned President Trump from their platforms due to incitement of violence and undermining the transition of power to President-elect Joe Biden and vice president-elect Kamala Harris.
Your T1 WIFI, based in Priest River, Idaho, provides internet service in parts of northern Idaho and Spokane, Washington.
The company said on Monday it decided to offer customers the option to block Facebook and Twitter starting next Wednesday after the company received several calls from customers about both websites censorship issues with conservative posters.
Idaho’s Your T1 WIFI posted a note on their website to customers stating that it 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 company went further by saying that it would block Facebook and Twitter on its internet service only for customers who asked.
According to FOX News show FOX & Friends FIRST, the site has garnered over 600,000 visitors over the past 24 hours though it must be noted that their Alexa traffic Rank shows a limited visitors.
In fact members of the media are looking at this as a publicity stunt by the small internet provider as FOX News, Newsmax and AM talk radio were quick to blitz their airwaves with this story late Monday night. It is sure to be blitzed once again on Tuesday.
