A North Idaho Internet service provider (ISP) has decided to block tech giant social media platforms Facebook and Twitter after it recieved complaints from its customers they were being censored.

The ISP - Your T1 WIFI - will block Facebook and Twitter from its WIFI service from this Wednesday, KREM 2 reports.

The move comes on the heels of Twitter banning President Donald Trump from its platform, while Facebook locked him out “indefinitely.”

An email to Your T1 WIFI customers read:

“It has come to our attention that Twitter and Facebook are engaged in the censorship of our customers and information."

The ISP said it had received called from customers complaining about Facebook and Twitter.

“We have the past couple of days been fielding calls from customers voicing the concern that they do not want these sites allowed to be displayed on their internet feed to them and that they do not want their children to go to these sites,” the email read.

According to the ISP, too many of its customers requested the sites to be blocked for them not to act.

The provider will block Facebook and Twitter for all customers unless they reach out to the company to request access.

“There are too many people that have called for us to do one [customer] at a time so we will be blocking [Facebook and Twitter] and any other website that may also be censoring,” the email reads.

The company adds that two-thirds of its customers asked for the sites to be blocked.

The ISP also explained it does not condone big tech companies — censoring users or “trying to exterminate the competition,” such as Parler.

“Our company does not believe a website or social networking site has the authority to censor what you see and post and hide information from you,” the email reads.

“We have made this decision to block these two websites from being accessed from our network.”

“We also don’t condone what Google, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, and Apple are doing either to Parler by trying to strong arm them into submission,” the email adds.

The company clarified that it would not block the websites for customers who did not want them blocked.

Big Tech began its crackdown on Trump and his supporters last week.

Twitter permanently banned Trump from its platform on Friday.

The Jack Dorsey-owned platform claims that Trump’s tweets about his supporters continuing to be heard and not attending Joe Biden’s inauguration somehow violated Twitter’s guidelines on inciting or glorifying violence.

Google and Apple took the next step of removing popular Twitter alternate Parler from its app stores, while Amazon booted its servers' social media platform.
