Twitter has a new policy of allowing its male users to post tweets up to 150 characters in length, while limiting its female users to just 140.

It's a sign of the times and a blantant example of patriarchy in action.

The full story can be found here: http://bit.ly/mGnySI

We've got to protest against this decision and force Twitter to back down!

Spread the word via Facebook and Twitter!

"Once the penny dropped, she contacted Tasmanian Womyn Are Tenacious – her local women’s rights organisation, who then proceeded to kick up one hell of a fuss."

Per-lease! 0/10.

Wow, did you not even read the whole thing? It's a blatant spoof news site, and not a subtle one at that.

For anyone not convinced, go on to Twitter and see for yourself.

Several of Stephen Fry's recent tweets contain in excess of 140 characters, for example!
