So Twitter has gone and done it: they’ve banned Donald Trump from his favorite online hangout, “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
Naturally, Trump’s fans on the far right are acting as if Twitter has fired the first shot in an literal civil war.
Some suggested that Twitter’s attempt to shut down incitement of yet another attempted coup … is the real coup
Some saw it as a victory for … China?
James Woods was less upset by the Trump ban than he was about his apparent loss of Twitter followers.
Others thought that a private company’s ban of the literal head of state was somehow evidence of totalitarianism.
I’m not sure what this guy is up to but he seems awfully familiar.
Best of luck finding your way around Twitter, John Barron!
