Scenes from the ongoing Twitter debacle that is #JeSuisMilo

Found in the #JeSuisMilo hashtag on Twitter
Found in the #JeSuisMilo hashtag on Twitter

History repeats itself. In September 1939, Hitler launched World War II by blocking Poland on Twitter. In December 1941, the United States entered into the war after Japan subtweeted the American naval base at Pearl Harbor.

This past Friday, according to Breitbart, Twitter “declar[ed] war on conservative media” by taking away the little blue checkmark that used to run next to Breitbart “journalist” Milo Yiannopoulos’ name on Twitter, verifying that he is indeed the real Milo Yiannopoulos.

No, really. Here’s the headline of the piece that ran in Breitbart’s tech section on the terrible injustice done to young Mr. Yiannopoulos, who coincidentally just happens to run Breitbart’s tech section.

Twitter Declares War On Conservative Media, ‘Unverifies’ Breitbart Tech Editor Milo Yiannopoulos

Now, Milo hasn’t actually been banned from Twitter. Twitter simply informed him that “due to [his] recent violations of the Twitter Rules” — he’s a bit of a bully — they were taking away his little blue checkmark. So now he has to navigate Twitter without a little blue checkmark, like the overwhelming majority of Twitter users.

Naturally, Milo’s army of fans has responded to this terrible tragedy with wisdom and restraint.

JUST KIDDING! They’re crying bloody murder on Twitter and harassing anyone they can blame for Milo’s de-checkmarking.

Referencing a slogan formerly used to honor journalists and others literally murdered by terrorists, Milo’s Twitter fans launched the hashtag #JeSuisMilo. It was ugly

Here are some scenes from the ongoing debacle that is that hashtag.

Naturally, there were rape jokes.

https://twitter.com/MikeRotondo86/status/685666046443823104

In a variation on the old “I’m Spartacus” ploy, many of Milo’s fans pretended to be him. (The real Milo posts as @Nero)

https://twitter.com/Nuclearcherries/status/685698288864079873

It didn’t take long for the Milovians to find women to blame for Milo’s plight. Many — including some of the fake Milos — went after Huffington Post writer Jessie Thompson, who wrote a piece defending Twitter’s actions. Many of her, er, critics seem to be big fans of the c-word.

https://twitter.com/QuintusMetellus/status/685867151060766722

https://twitter.com/herpefeminist/status/685849987230597121

But she wasn’t the only woman to draw the fire of the Milovians. Some used the hashtag as an excuse to attack familiar #GamerGate targets.

https://twitter.com/brightonus33/status/685668906862809088

Others — again, including some fake Milos — used the hashtag to promote their own agendas — some silly, some horrific, some a mixture of the two.

https://twitter.com/_simpa_/status/685993767007088640

One fellow thought he knew the real reason feminists hate Milo.

A few even managed to work their “cuck” obsession into their Tweets.

https://twitter.com/Ideo_Vames/status/685659660104368129

You can tell something about writers by the fans they attract. Milo’ fans prove with every terrible tweet of their what a wretched bunch of bullies and bigots they are — and why Twitter needs to do more to crack down on the abuse that its platform enables.

Congratulations, Milo defenders, for own-goaling yourself so magnificently.

If the blue check mark is simply a privilege than I would have no problem with twitter giving or taking them away for any reason whatsoever. But if the blue check mark is there to protect the identities of notable people, then I don’t think twitter should take that away for violating the T.O.S.

The blue check mark isn’t there to protect the identities of notable people. The blue check mark is there to protect brands, or more accurately to protect Twitter from being sued by the owners of those brands when people mischeviously impersonate them.

It also gets applied to humans, but if you look at Twitter’s FAQ on the subject it makes it plain that it’s there to protect “highly sought users in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business and other key interest areas.” People with the money and the motivation to use lawyers in order to protect their brands, in other words.

They extended it to Yiannopoulos as a courtesy, and it got taken away again because he acted with discourtesy.

Now let’s discuss something more interesting: What are your motives for coming here and discussing this with us? You evidently feel extremely strongly about this topic, strongly enough to join a website you’ve never commented on before and will probably not remain on afterwards. This isn’t just a case of “someone is wrong on the internet”; this is the behaviour of someone who takes this personally.

Tell me about that, because that human factor is vastly more interesting than anything else you’ve said. Why do you take it personally? And why do you come here to discuss it, rather than (say) Breitbart, where Yiannopoulos’s fans can be found in greater number?

I will agree that this discussion has gone on way longer than I ever intended. I think you guys care more about taking the Blue tick away than I care about defending it.

Because nothing says “I really care about this conversation” like Bowie gifs.

@ Ben

To continue the pub landlord analogy.

Let’s say I misbehave in the pub. As a result the landlord says I’m no longer allowed to take part in lock ins (a privilege extended to a select few drinkers).

I’m outraged and think it would have been better to bar me. Well, the landlord will no doubt point out no one is forcing me to drink there.

So, if Milo believes losing his tick is too harsh and suspension would be more appropriate, he’s free to stop using Twitter.

I kinda wonder if “Why did Twitter unverify Milo when he broke more than enough rules to be permabanned?!” is really the smartest party line for Ben and his #Gater bros to push here…

I mean, sure, it does make Twitter look bad, but in the polar opposite direction to the way they want.

Ben Cohen:

You and I could spot a badly constructed fake Charlie Sheen account with seven followers; I’m not sure I could spot a well done fake account with several hundred followers. Twitter instituted the blue tick for a reason, and it wasn’t to honor Milo or anyone else for being great people. They instituted the blue tick to protect the identity of notable people.

No, you are wrong. They didn’t institute the blue tick to protect the identity of notable people. From Twitter:

Twitter verifies accounts on an ongoing basis to make it easier for users to find who they’re looking for.

It’s a convenience to make it easier. EEEEEAAAASSSSIIIIEEEERRRRRR! It’s not protection. So comparing it to the secret service is ridiculously stupid. It’s a convenience, and a privilege.

As I said earlier, you are applying your own wishes to the blue check mark.

And this proves google is flawless? Then I guess nobody needs a blue-tick.

Correct! Nobody needs a blue tick! It’s a convenience. And twitter even offers alternatives methods to make it easier for people to confirm the authenticity of their twitter account:

Besides verification, how can I show my account is authentic?

Linking to your Twitter profile from an official website is the easiest way to confirm the authenticity of your Twitter account. Including Twitter’s follow button on your webpage is the absolute best way to do this. Click here to learn how. Or, visit all help articles about linking to your Twitter account from your blog or website here.

So see? Milo can do that and people will know his account is the real Milo.

Ben Cohen (again):

I also don’t get secret service protection. Celebrities are the target of all sorts of crap to a much greater degree than normal people, that is why twitter has this policy.

Nope, again, you are applying your own desires to twitter.

I did a search for Milo Yiannopoulos from the Twitter app and @Nero was the first hit *and* it was bolder in the search auto-fill suggestions, so Ben’s sole point is moot. Also, the second hit was @voxday so if Milo takes issue with being impersonated I’m sure he’ll report that account to Twitter and write an article denouncing that Twitter handle, right?

Paradoxical Intention,

What do you know? Googling “Charlie Sheen Twitter” gave me the real account on the first fucking result.

And this proves google is flawless? Then I guess nobody needs a blue-tick.

Holy shit, you actually do get it.

All I need to do is Google “[Celebrity’s Name] Twitter”, and their account will more than likely be the first one to pop up. Boom. Ignorance solved.

On top of that, more than one person has pointed out (myself included) that 98% of people on Twitter (myself included) manage to identify ourselves just fine without a blue check, and we pointed out ways that you can spot fake Twitter accounts as well.

You can lead a Ben to water, but you can’t make him shut up about how he’s supposed to drink it.

And what privileges does a verified account confer? If a verified account really were an endorsement from twitter than I would agree with you, but my understanding is that verified accounts are intended to protect the identities of notable people, in which case Milo does have a case.

For all that talk I just did about Google, I’d think you’d learn to use it.

Daft radish? When you say things like that it hurts my feelings…

Good night, it’s bedtime.

-Ben

What “protections” do you think the blue check mark offers to people, Ben? Because we’ve all pointed out why those “protections” are pretty much useless to anyone with any lick of social media savvy.

And if you can identify those “protections”, why do you think that Milo should have them or that taking them away is somehow a moral controversy?

Also, being “verified” on Twitter doesn’t mean you’re “notable” or “famous”, just that you have enough people to vouch for you to make Twitter go “Okay, your profile gets a special picture on it”.

Ben is basically like the little kid who, when his parents tell him, no, we don’t agree that you need sweets, will sit in the middle of the aisle constantly screaming ‘I want sweets! I need sweets!’ hoping that eventually, the parent will give in and agree.

Basically, he just repeats the same things over and over, sure that at some point everyone will just agree.

Ben, this doesn’t work.

NOBODY needs a blue check. No one at all. You do know people can get imposter accounts taken down, right? Except it likely doesn’t happen often, because- blue ticks are next to worthless.

Oh, Ben, strawman, really? Says the guy defending a manurespherian type.

(Off topic, but currently listening to Summertime Sadness by Lana Del Rey. Love it! Just so hypnotic, all of her songs really. Just ignore the not hostile, but rather odd opinions on feminism Lana Del Rey has come out with. Aaand now Gods and Monsters has come on. Cool!)

EJ,

What you more or less admit is that I am correct the main purpose for verification. It is to verify that a notable person, institution, or company is who they say they are. The argument is repetitive because people refuse to accept what is staring them directly in the face, you even admit it.

The blue check mark isn’t there to protect the identities of notable people. The blue check mark is there to protect brands, or more accurately to protect Twitter from being sued by the owners of those brands when people mischeviously impersonate them.

This is precisely what I have been saying. Twitter didn’t put it in place simply because the twitter CEO is a really, nice, helpful guy or gal, twitter is responsible for the content that they host. When people are spoofing celebrities and corporations, they could potentially be sued.

I also think twitter has a responsibility to protect the identities of famous people, (yes they have a responsibility to protect everyone’s identity but average people are not subject to the same level of threat).

Now let’s discuss something more interesting: What are your motives for coming here and discussing this with us? You evidently feel extremely strongly about this topic, strongly enough to join a website you’ve never commented on before and will probably not remain on afterwards. This isn’t just a case of “someone is wrong on the internet”; this is the behaviour of someone who takes this personally.

To a large extent, we are our reputations, and when we are dead that is all that will be left. In this particular case Milo is encouraging his supporters to spoof him, but that doesn’t change how I feel about twitter’s decision.

What happened to Ben Garrison bothered me on a visceral level. Imagine if the Westboro Baptist Church created a fake twitter account with your name, and started posting homophobic screeds for lulz.

Twitter shouldn’t be treating identity protection as a privilege to be taken away for vague “terms of service” violations. Twitter never revealed what Milo did, specifically, to lose his verification.

One more thing that I find viscerally disturbing: People who treat any form of disagreement as trolling. My initial post was completely polite and civil, and for it I got called a troll. People who respond to disagreement that way are close-minded, stupid, and bigoted, and they piss me off. Do you like bigots? Because I don’t.

Alan Robertshaw,

To continue the pub landlord analogy.

Let’s say I misbehave in the pub. As a result the landlord says I’m no longer allowed to take part in lock ins (a privilege extended to a select few drinkers).

I’m outraged and think it would have been better to bar me. Well, the landlord will no doubt point out no one is forcing me to drink there.

So, if Milo believes losing his tick is too harsh and suspension would be more appropriate, he’s free to stop using Twitter.

A lockin is something the pub owner put in place for “preferred customers,” i.e. well-behaved regulars. Verification was put in place, as EJ pointed out, to protect the identity of corporations and famous people. So it isn’t simply a privilege, an endorsement, or an honorific.


“Twitter’s Faq: Why does Twitter verify accounts?
Verification is currently used to establish authenticity of identities of key individuals and brands on Twitter.”

As other’s have pointed out, verification is not an endorsement of content, as all sorts of grossly offensive material is “verified.” Twitter verifies celebrities to confirm their identities, which to some extent is the fulfillment of their legal responsibility.

No no no, now you’re twisting things. Nowhere does it say it’s about legal responsibility or even to “confirm their identities” as a form of protection. You are hitting the realm of dishonesty here. They give the purpose right there in the FAQ as I posted earlier (and the answer to the very question after the one you quoted… How is that for being disingenuous?):

Twitter verifies accounts on an ongoing basis to make it easier for users to find who they’re looking for. We concentrate on highly sought users in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business and other key interest areas. We are constantly updating our requirements for verification. Note, verification does not factor in follower count or Tweet count.

Hmmm

Twitter verifies accounts on an ongoing basis to make it easier for users to find who they’re looking for.

What was that?

to make it easier for users to find who they’re looking for.

Not as legal responsibility. If it was legal responsibility, they wouldn’t tell people not verified:

If you think you meet the criteria for verification and have not yet received a badge, please be patient. We are working within key interest areas to verify accounts that are sought after by other Twitter users. We don’t accept verification requests from the general public, but we encourage you to continue using Twitter in a meaningful way, and you may be verified in the future. Please note that follower count is not a factor in determining whether an account meets our criteria for verification.

See, it’s all for the benefit the users looking for person’s or brand’s account.
Be honest or go home.

First of all I must say that David Bowie is a goddamn inspiration. I wish I had that level of charisma. Also, I very much enjoyed listening to ‘The man who sold the world’ at the opening of MGS5.

Also I missed the sealion, but boy was this one predictable

One more thing that I find viscerally disturbing: People who treat any form of disagreement as trolling. My initial post was completely polite and civil, and for it I got called a troll.

Actually, no you didn’t. Literally everyone just said ‘No, you’re wrong’ or felt zero sympathy for Milo. In other words, no, people here do not treat “any form of disagreement as trolling”, they just disagreed with you. But when you said condescending shit like this:

Above perfectly exemplifies anti-intellectualism. You don’t like Milo, ergo you think that random trolls impersonating him is funny and cute. When someone points out the downside to encouraging this type of behavior, it makes your brain hurt and you tell them to leave.

then you got treated as a troll.

Not to mention, you are being treated far more nicely here than anywhere else on the internet. Try disagreeing with fans of Milo, see how well that works for ya

People who respond to disagreement that way are close-minded, stupid, and bigoted, and they piss me off. Do you like bigots? Because I don’t.
