Twitter, which has come under fire of late for censoring posts its team deems inappropriate — meaning, conservative in ideology or critical of Islam — has just labeled an opinion piece about women in Iran removing their headscarves as “sensitive material.”

And it wasn’t long after that a Jihad Watch reader alerted him to this message, from Twitter:
That’s the big question, isn’t it — why would Twitter find an opinion piece based on the factual reporting of Iranian women liberating themselves from the headscarf?
This is a cultural jihad, an attempt of the media to water down the truths of Islam and create a hyper-sensitivity toward the religion that the U.S. Constitution does not recognize — that America’s First Amendment does not allow.
Or, as Spencer puts it: “Twitter, like Facebook, seems determined to implement Sharia norms regarding speech.”
