Twitter shuts down Rogers parody account
Twitter is now blocking an account that parodies Rogers, likely due to a complaint from the telecom giant. The account made humourous but critical comments about Rogers' cell phone price-gouging, poor customer service, and long-term contracts—issues that many Canadians are forced to deal with because of the lack of choice in our cell phone market. It's precisely because of this lack of choice that Rogers can deal with this critique most easily by going after the account, rather than by making an effort to meet the reasonable expectations of its customers.
