The internet is full of small revolts right now. From Flash to Facebook, everyone has something to bitch about. A much less known fight is underway, however, and this one we find particularly relevant: that of Kristina Rose and Twitpic.
Kristina Rose is an L.A.-based porn star who regularly uses Twitter and Twitpic to keep her fans updated on what she's doing. Or did -- before Twitpic deleted her account.
Of course, even a cursory read of Twitpic's terms of service shows that there is very little Rose can do to have the matter addressed:
Twitpic is concerned about the safety and privacy of all its Users, especially children. Therefore, children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use Twitpic.com.
TwitPic reserves the right to remove any image for any reason whatsoever. Specifically, any image uploaded that is pornographic or offensive in nature (including nudity, violence, sexual acts, or sexually provocative images.), infringes upon copyrights not held by the uploader, is illegal or violates any laws, will be immediately deleted and the IP address of the uploaded reported to authorities. Violating these terms will result result in termination of your ability to upload further images.
We reserve the right to ban any individual uploader or website domain from using our servies for any reason.
But that doesn't stop her followers from voicing their dissent!
Of course, this might turn out to be beneficial to our favorite porn doll:
See what she did there? Buy the movie. Brilliant!
