Apple's newly minted social network
Ping is being accused of censoring Lady GaGa's pro-gay marriage
Ping only went live Wednesday, but
always quick on the draw Gawker immediately reported on the slip.
“Apple left out a string of tweets in
which Gaga lauds the downfall of California's anti-gay marriage law
in its introduction of Ping, the new iTunes-based social network
which lets you connect with artists and other music fans,” the
Gay icon Lady GaGa's tweets said the
ruling moved her to make music.
“At the moments notice of PROP 8
DEATH I instantly began to write music,” GaGa tweeted to her nearly
5.3 million followers. “BUBBLE DREAMS FOREVER! FULL EQUALITY!
THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING!”
“REJOICE and CELEBRATE gay
communities and straight all over the world,” she tweeted moments
later. “Our voices are being heard! Loud! SCREAM LOUD
But both tweets from the Alejandro
singer who, according to recent reports, wants
to marry her gay fans on stage were absent from Ping.
“Just wait until Gaga starts tweeting
about her penis,” Gawker joked.
