Site That Monitors, Publishes Politicians' Deleted Tweets Is Back
Politwoops, the site that monitors and publishes politicians' deleted tweets, can again access Twitter's data.By Mikah Sargent | December 31, 2015
Twitter is reversing its decision to ban Politwoops about six months after it originally cut off the site's access.
Politwoops is a social media monitoring service that gathers and maintains an archive of politicians' deleted tweets. If politicians tweeted something they later regretted and then chose to remove it, Politwoops would make said tweet available to the public.
Twitter, at the time, said it banned Politwoops for violating the company's developer agreement. It also said user privacy was important, "whether the user is anonymous or a member of Congress."
