We discussed Twitter diplomacy, China and Russia hacking, plus Trump’s cabinet picks so far. My fellow panelist was Talk Radio Host Mark Levine.
Wouldn’t it be nice to silence those who say thinks you disagree with or find repugnant, or is that censorship? Twitter just shut down Milo Yiannopoulous, a gay conservative provocateur, because he wrote an unkind statement about Leslie Jones in the new Ghostbusters movie. His followers then took to Twitter and said the most hateful, vile, and racist things to Leslie.
Milo didn’t, his followers did. Twitter should have shut down the accounts sending the horrible messages unless Milo specifically called for vile, hate speech to be sent to Leslie Jones.
Does that mean Donald J. Trump should be shutdown because his followers send me vile, hateful messages or what about what his followers sent Julia Ioffe after she profiled Melania in GQ Magazine?
Take a look at the Twitter rules:
