0s and 1s commonly create speech that courts use -- that means precedence is set. #Code is speech -- they're languages made of bits! Point being, ISPs shouldn't be allowed to deny computer speech from being seen by others. #NetNeutrality

Evidence in thread:
#NetNeutrality Evidence case 1: Bradley v. State: @Facebook evidence used to ID assailants and other witnesses. Its compelling because translated bits were used to ID people. It proves third party intermediary bits translated into media are used by courts. scholar.google.com/scholar_case?c…
#SaveNetNeutrality Evidence case 2: Homeland Security v. Twitter: @DHSgov seized data that was digitized and sent to intermediary @Twitter. Twitter sued its an ongoing investigation. Regardless, It appears consumer's translated bits were treated as speech? clearinghouse.net/detail.php?id=…
#NetNeutrality Evidence case 3: People v. Simonetta: Simonetta's @facebook digitized bits translated to English helped prove the girl lied. People subsequently withdrew 1 count of criminal sexual act in the first degree from the indictment. h2o.law.harvard.edu/cases/5709 @harvard
#BattleForTheNet Evidence case 4: Stein v. Dowling: @USMC sergeant Stein's #technology digitized his speech and sent it to @facebook for his profile. Those bits were then translated into English which were used as evidence in court. #Code is speech. 📢unitedstatescourts.org/federal/casd/3…
Since code is speech. Corporations who also have free speech because of Citizens United in 2007, can also freely speak bits. Websites are made of speech. Here is where it gets interesting. Pre #NetNeutrality era I found proof companies blocked others speech. Lets dig in
#NetNeutrality Evidence 5: @cnn wrote that @Verizon blocked @google wallet so they could share their wallet instead. It also shares how @Apple blocked tech innovation pre @BarackObama NN era -- proving that if companies have that leverage they'll use it. money.cnn.com/2011/12/06/tec…
blocked @Google wallet because of supposed specs not matching up. No #NetNeutrality in 2011 made them think they could decide what software our paid for tech was allowed to use. We need neutrality to stop monopolization and device hijacking. wsj.com/articles/SB100…
The cases I presented as evidence are from 2012. If there are cases prior to 2007 Citizens United -- which also show consensus of digitized third party intermediary bits being translated into English as evidence -- then @Verizon infringed on @google's 1st amendemnt rights.
In blocking the google pay wallet in 2011 @Verizon blocked @google's code. My evidence shows court consensus of codes and digitized evidence being treated as speech. 0s and 1s make up bytes and everything online. Code is speech. The tech world needs #NetNeutrality for protection.
