https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2016...-banned-twitter

I won't copy and paste this as the article is way too long.

But in summary, a bunch of hatred from a bellend named Milo aimed at Leslie Jones ended up getting a prominent Twitter troll banned. Of course Milo and his friends have cried that Twitter are restricting freedom of speech, but was the ban in this instance justified? Or did Twitter go too far.

It's a very interesting case, and in summary the user is a complete waste of space. They stir up indirect hatred and are quick to blame others for doing the exact same thing they do. Hopefully Lauren Southern and Prison Planet are next on the Twitter hitlist. Awful human beings.

Jesus, I'm happy I've never heard of this guy before and won't have to hear about him. If your existence is built over hurting other people, your 'free speech' isn't going to be without consequences.

No he's a conservative gay immigrant who calls Donald Trump "daddy".

He's basically a cult leader that define people on race and ideology.

Well, Twitter isn't the government so "freedom of speech" doesn't affect this person in this case. They have every right to ban someone. I haven't seen the offender's tweets but have heard enough about this story that I'd rather spare myself from mourning for humanity.

If anyone wants to look at some of his friends:

https://twitter.com/prisonplanet
https://twitter.com/Lauren_Southern

These people indirectly spite hatred and segregation and constantly play the victim card. It's horrible to see.

Yeah they can cry free speech all they want but Twitter is under no obligation to host their hate speech. Free speech is the right not to be prosecuted for your beliefs not the right to force others to listen and companies to host them
