How effective do you think a Twitter ban on thinspiration language would be?
I’m not going to say I think it’d be super effective. But I don’t think they should just sit back and not do anything about it just because [pro-eating disorder users] will find something else to use. They should be blocking every channel they’ve got that gets the message across, and keep blocking the tags until the movement is suppressed. This is an issue that requires a vigilant effort.
I’m in favor of blocking the thinspo hashtag. I really hope this issue gets resolved, because this is an epidemic, basically. I hope girls can escape it.
