    I mean, you can look at the list of people they blacklisted, and about 95% of the ones I saw have the n-word or neo-naziism in their bio, so I think they have a pretty reasonable definition.

      So explain to me why you need a special service to prevent neo-nazi tweets from showing up in your feed?

      I don't know about you, but I've chosen not to follow anybody who would retweet content from @Nazi4life69.

      The accounts they've listed as blacklisted in their test run have an average of 20ish followers . If anything, this service has just given these crazies an even BIGGER voice by legitimizing them as significant enough to blacklist.

      I just get the feeling this project is a bunch of opportunistic dudes trying to make money off of the social justice warrior zeitgeist the internet is on right now.
