Twitter Industry Update
Technology abounds these days and there are more opportunities than ever for
those in the online casino gambling industry to find out about new promotions
and special tournaments and games. There are also other uses to new social
networking and connecting services like Twitter – the dissemination of news.
Online casinos and the internet gambling industry were surprised to learn that
Australian authorities have raided the home of the Wikileaks site.
Wikileaks upset the Australian authorities because the site published a list of
Australia’s censored Web sites. These include online casinos that are blocked
and banned from the industry as well as pornography and risqué and unwanted
topics. According to the Twitter update the Australian police raided the home of
the site’s domain owner, one Theodor Reppe. Reppe is apparently the
owner/registrar of the domain name in Germany – that fact was enough to prompt
the authorities to raid his personal home.
There is no telling what the authorities are hoping to find; there are no
allegations at this point that the site operates any of the forbidden and
illegal pastimes. Right now online casinos are a bit taboo in Australia and
other sites offering questionable information are also blocked by strengthening
censorship laws. Wikileaks really only offense is the sharing/leaking of
information that the governments of various countries would likely prefer under
wraps. But in the digital age, with consumers going online all over, it’s
scarcely plausible to assume that they can keep anything truly secret for long.
For Wikileaks, there has been no additional information released at this point
but Twitter patrons of the site are watching their inboxes for more information
on the situation.
