Twitter might be the place for you. Also, the site does not close accounts.

In some cases, the offending tweets even include short videos of available illegal drugs.

The following screenshot blurs the contact details of the person offering to sell drugs, but they are not obscured in the post. It’s still public on Twitter.

The email contains the names of towns in the UK where the medicine can be delivered.

So what is Twitter’s reaction to this?
