Twitter has given conservative “provocateur” Milo Yiannopoulos a lifetime ban. The reason: Some of his followers sent Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones racist messages. Given that your friendly neighborhood blogger was once banned from Twitter after calling out the company for not punishing the guy who threatened to kill me, I figured this story might be worth a YouTube video.
Check out the video below and let me know what you think of Milo, Twitter’s selective enforcement of its own code of conduct, online trolls, and Ms. Jones. I’d love to hear what you have to say.
Update: Twitter refused to verify my account despite the fact that I’ve worked with a major newspaper in Washington, D.C., for years. Classic!
