David Duke and His Twitter Nazis Got Mad at Me. Twitter Took Their Side. - 2019-11-30
Twitter is notorious for its passivity as users are abused by its large contingent of Nazis, Christian Identitarians, Odinist/Wotanists, fascist furries, and presidents of the United States. When @hardrock2016 threatened political commentator Rochelle Ritchie on October 11, 2018, and she reported it, Twitter informed her using boilerplate language that it didn't see anything the matter. A few days later, @hardrock2016 — i.e., Cesar Sayoc — began mailing out 16 pipe bombs to prominent Democrats, news outlets, etc.
But what happens when the feelings of Twitter's Nazis get hurt? As I found out, Twitter becomes deeply concerned and springs into action.
The short version of the story is that I made fun of Tucker Carlson; Carlson's fans notified David Duke, the former KKK Grand Wizard and current Twitter personality; Duke dug up an earlier joke I'd made in 2015; Duke's minions reported the 2015 joke to Twitter; and Twitter told me my 2015 joke violated its terms of service and my account would be frozen unless I voluntarily deleted it. Now, eight months later, I've finally given in and bowed to Twitter's degrading demands.
