Twitter briefly blocks pro-Phil Robertson site IStandWithPhil.com

For a brief time on Monday, Twitter made it very clear that they don’t stand with Phil Robertson.

The social networking site blocked tweets that included the pro-Robertson petition site, IStandWithPhil.com.

Once “Duck Dynasty” fans noticed the block, Twitter restored access to IStandWithPhil.com tweets, explaining that the website URL had been mistakenly flagged as spam, a Twitter spokesperson told FOX411. 

"We have restored access and apologize for the error," the spokesperson said. 

IStandWithPhil.com launched shortly after a controversial interview with the Robertson dad was published in GQ. In the in-depth story, Robertson made graphic, negative comments about homosexual sex and he was subsequently placed on an indefinitely suspension by A&E, the network behind “Duck Dynasty.”

The petition on IStandWithPhil.com asks A&E to “immediately reinstate Mr. Robertson to Duck Dynasty, and to formally apologize to him, his family, and the millions of viewers who tune in every week.” It has garnered more than 200,000 signatures as of Tuesday morning.

A similar petition on Change.org has earned about 115,000 signatures.
