Today, Twitter announced it was suspending alt-right twitter accounts. Alt-right, you say? You know, those guys who hate everything: women, African-Americans…hmm…It’s actually easier to say what they support, which is white supremacists. White supremacists with guns. Since Steve Bannon of Breitbart joined the Cheeto campaign and is now White House chief advisor to… I just can’t say it – to Him, the alt-right has spilled out into the public arena spreading their racist, misogynist, and hate filled rhetoric all over social media. Yesterday, a week after the elections, Google and Facebook decided it was time to close the barn door, now that the entire herd of horses got out last Tuesday. Twitter followed suit today, joining the other social media company at the back of the pack, cancelling hundreds of alt-right accounts spewing the same hateful rhetoric.
Thanks, Twitter, for helping us out and being so timely. (That was sarcasm.)
