Net Neutrality Plan Gets a Thumbs Up From Twitter

Twitter released a blog post Monday morning trumpeting its support for FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s latest net neutrality proposal, which is expected to be approved by the commission on Thursday. “We need clear, enforceable, legally sustainable rules to ensure that the Internet remains open and continues to give everyone the power to create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers. This is the heart of Twitter. Without such net neutrality principles in place, some of today’s most successful and widely known Internet companies might never have come into existence,” a company lobbyist wrote.

Twitter has previously expressed its support for net neutrality via the Internet Association, an industry trade group, with has also backed Wheeler’s proposal.
