Illustration for article titled Zune HD Twitter App Wont Let You F#$ing Swear

In the most random and unfortunate act of censorship we've seen since the iTunes Ninjawords debacle, the Zune HD Twitter app automatically whitewashes any bad words that show up in your timeline. UPDATE:


We've reached out to Zune to see if there's a way to adjust settings to switch it off, but if that's how Microsoft rolls, well, what a b%tch move.

UPDATE: That is how Microsoft rolls, at until they fix it. A spokesperson provided us with the following response:

"The recently released Twitter for Zune HD application has been abbreviating some explicit words in tweets when viewed on the device; however these explicit words do appear in their full text on the Twitter site or on any other Twitter client. We have identified the issue and are taking steps to update the application as soon as possible to ensure Twitter for Zune HD users are able to view tweets in their original state."


So looks like there's no way to view your tweets as written for now, but we'll keep you posted as soon as we hear about a successful update. [Engadget]
