Twitter has temporarily blocked the official account of the Torero Imanol Sánchez (@imanolsanchez) by the photo of his profile and that of the heading, both of Taurine theme, considering them "Graphic violence" and content "not suitable for minors".
In them you could see the right-handed arragonian giving a pass to a bull. After replacing them by one of the Basilica of the pillar of Zaragoza (the header) and one of his lighting dress (the profile), the social network has reactivated the account, which is already operational again.
Twitter considered both images as "graphic violence" and content "not suitable for minors", two of the most important standards so that an account can be blocked or, in the case of several reiterations, to be eliminated directly.
"We consider graphic violence, any type of truculent multimedia content related to death, serious injury, violence or surgical procedures. We consider non-aimed content for minors, any multimedia content that is pornographic or whose purpose is to generate sexual arousal," says the message received By the bullfighter and that he himself has disseminated.
And he adds: "Although some rejoice in censorship, they even take advantage to miss respect, I can only thank the amount of support messages. Having to delete content, the account - with almost 76,000 followers- is active again. Today I am I, but tomorrow will be another partner, we will defend our freedom. "
It is not the first time that Twitter blocks an account by taurine thematic containing, since last week was that of the Taurine Section of the World Journal (@elmundotoros) which was temporarily closed by the photo I had in his heading, a lance of dwelling From the Puebla in Valencia, which presided over the account since its opening in 2015.
The social network argued the same (graphic violence and content not suitable for minors) and those responsible for the account, with 19,000 followers, had to eliminate the image to be able to reactivate it.
The director of the Taurine Section of El Mundo, Vicente Zabala de la Serna, also reacted through his personal account: "It is a legal show, we can not welcome. Neither self-censoring us. This has happened with a section of a national shooting newspaper . It's what I think it's more serious. "
And last July happened to a follower of Puebla's Morante, who saw how this social network closed the account (@moranteinfo) for uploading images of the Sevillano bullfighter toilet in Algeciras (Cádiz) which, according to Twitter, caused "Delight in cruelty" and fostered "sadistic pleasure" by containing "free bloody scenes".Updated Date: 21 September 2021, 08:37
