ICE Briefly Becomes A Stranded Minor: Loses Its Twitter Account For Being Too Young (Techdirt)

Techdirt: ICE Briefly Becomes A Stranded Minor: Loses Its Twitter Account For Being Too Young . “Thanks to the ridiculousness of the Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which has basically served only to have parents teach their kids it’s okay to lie online in order to use any internet service, most websites say you can’t use the service if you’re under 13 years old. ICE changed its ‘birthdate’ to be less than 13, thereby making it… shall we say, something of a ‘stranded minor’ and Twitter automatically, well, ‘separated it’ from its account.”
