Twitter shuts down Ariadne Capital whsitleblower accounts – so much for free speech

By Tom Winnifrith | Saturday 20 April 2019


Ariadne Capital, the flagship vehicle of Julie Meyer may now be in administration but with the Insolvency Service and the FCA (as well as the IRS, HMRC and others) formally investigating Ms Lingerie on Expenses, whistleblowers should surely be cherished and protected? Er…

Last week the two twitter accounts of the leading whistleblower (AriadneShambles and Ariadne Bankrupt) were both not suspended but terminated for good. One can only speculate as to who contacted twitter to ensure the takedown. But both the Times and ourselves have in the past couple of weeks been threatened by Ms Meyer if we do not remove all articles on her and Ariadne.

Natch, we will be doing nothing of the sort and would relish the disclosure process a court battle would entail 

Once upon a time twitter supported free speech, whistleblowers and others with something to say. Now it seems to bend to e very whim or threat from the rich and the powerful.
