Twitter has blocked users from tweeting IStandWithPhil.com as the high-profile petition drive in support of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson rapidly approaches 200,000 members in just under four days. This marks at least the third major shutdown of a pro-Phil Robertson social media account since the story broke days ago.
“Despite Twitter’s shutdown of IStandWithPhil.com, we are surging through 200,000 supporters. In recent days, IStandWithPhil.com is among the top trending hashtags on Twitter,” says Chris Stone, founder of Faith Driven Consumer. “We’re encouraging supporters to be heard, tweet the @support or @twitteraccount, and use their other means of communication to get IStandWithPhil.com back online.”
A Google page diagnostic of IStandWithPhil.com indicates “this site is not currently listed as suspicious” and that “this has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.” IStandWithPhil.com is alerting its supporters and asking them to Tweet @support or @twitter to unblock postings that contain IStandWithPhil.com.
IStandWithPhil.com, a project of Faith Driven Consumer—an organization connecting Christian consumers with faith-compatible companies—is an online petition drive calling for tolerance, fairness and respect for differing viewpoints in America’s rainbow of diversity.
The project, which is just four days old, has been widely profiled by hundreds of media organizations across all mediums, including local and national digital, print and broadcast outlets.
