I Stand with Phil: Twitter Reportedly Blocking Links to Phil Robertson Petition Site

Plenty of Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty fans have flocked to Twitter to voice their support for the Duck Commander, but it appears that Twitter is now blocking users from posting links to the site IStandWithPhil.com.

#IStandWithPhil has been trending on Twitter for days, but links to the actual site, run by Christian group Faith Driven Consumer, are being flagged for spam.

You can see for yourself below what happens if you try to tweet out a link to the website (using the Twitter for Mac app).


Faith Driven Consumer insists that their site does not currently host malicious software of any kind.

Watch Fox News’ report on the potential blocking and the issues of censorship it raises below:
