Clive Hart does not, it seems, like questions and blocked a bunch of people on twitter including Thanet Star. What might be happening here and why?.
Now before we go on I should stop and explain what a twitter block is and is not. It is not a way to stop your tweets being read and commented on or of silencing critics or even of letting a person know you think that they are blogger scum.
Twitter assumes that public accounts (such as @CliveHart) have granted permission for everyone to subscribe. A twitter block is simply that permission removed one at a time (See support page for more). If you block me on twitter I'm no longer allowed to get your updates automatically but I can still go to your profile page and read what you say, I can reply and retweet but you will not be notified that this is happening. Ignorance being bliss and all that.
So in short: blocking someone on twitter is a way of ignoring them.
The side effect of this is that for an account like @ThanetStar is it is harder to keep up to date with all of politics because the "leader" of the council refuses to let his tweets appear on our homepage.
Clive Hart chose to ignore Thanet Star permanently when we asked the hard questions.
