WesternActor writes “According to PCMag.com, the New York Times has asked Twitter to shut down the FreeNYT Twitter feed that basically retweets all of the Times‘ articles. Is this really possible? After all, the feed just points to a list of Times Twitter accounts, all of which can also be found on the Times‘ website. If the Times succeeds in shutting this down, it could have a chilling effect for Twitter and online free speech in general.”
