Twitter has really stepped up their thought policing efforts with new policies that went into affect today. The new policies pretty much allow them to ban anybody they want for any reason.
Twitter had previously announced that they were planning on implementing even more stringent policies to ban users who have dared to express wrong think. Some of those measures went into affect today.
The new policy itself is quite insane. It basically means that they’ll be banning almost anyone that has a political view to the right of Karl Marx. Think I’m joking? The policy is so vague that they can apply it to ban almost anybody they want.
Here are the relevant portions outlining who they plan on dropping the ban hammer on.
Accounts that affiliate with organizations that use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes. Groups included in this policy will be those that identify as such or engage in activity — both on and off the platform — that promotes violence. This policy does not apply to military or government entities and we will consider exceptions for groups that are currently engaging in (or have engaged in) peaceful resolution.
Content that glorifies violence or the perpetrators of a violent act. This includes celebrating any violent act in a manner that may inspire others to replicate it or any violence where people were targeted because of their membership in a protected group. We will require offending Tweets to be removed and repeated violations will result in permanent suspension.
Any account that abuses or threatens others through their profile information, including their username, display name, or profile bio. If an account’s profile information includes a violent threat or multiple slurs, epithets, racist or sexist tropes, incites fear, or reduces someone to less than human, it will be permanently suspended. We plan to develop internal tools to help us identify violating accounts to supplement user reports.
Hateful imagery will now be considered sensitive media under our media policy. We consider hateful imagery to be logos, symbols, or images whose purpose is to promote hostility and malice against others based on their race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin. If this type of content appears in header or profile images, we will now accept profile-level reports and require account owners to remove any violating media.
So if you expose the savage like nature of various non-Whites, they’ll ban you from the service. Having a Pepe the Frog or Groyper avatar could get you banned. Even hurting someone’s feelings could get you banned. And you don’t even have to post wrong think on Twitter to be subjected to this policy. Offline wrong think can also get you banned.
It appears as if Britain First’s Jayda Fransen, American Renaissance’s Jared Taylor and Occidental Dissent’s Hunter Wallace have already been banned.

What’s funny is how all of these leftists are using terms like “snowflakes” to criticize people who have issues with this policy. They don’t know how to troll worth a shit. They’re the ones who are supporting an online safe space where anybody who challenges their political views is banned. You don’t get to be much more of a “snowflake” than that.
The good news is that Twitter’s new policy greatly expands the number of users who can get banned. Since leftists are by their nature openly violent, there’s a good chance that Twitter will have to purge many of them as well.

This policy ensures that fewer and fewer people are going to use the service. One of the original appeals of Twitter was the conflict that occurred between people with differing political views.
The fallout from the financial disaster that “ban fucking everyone” is going to cause is going to increase calls for government intervention in the social media space. Sites like Facebook and Twitter have become the public square of the 21st century. Private corporations with monopoly-like powers shouldn’t be choosing who can and who can’t participate.
Not only should they not be allowed, they don’t want to do it. @jack held out with “free speech wing of the free speech party” then got caught on the slippery slope when he banned Andrew Anglin, MILO and Chuck Johnson. He bent and broke, being bullied into mass bannings. The company is effectively committing suicide.
Leftists are hailing him as a hero for shutting it down. I remember a short period of time ago when leftists were all about dismantling the big corporations. Apparently, they don’t mind big monopolies so long as they are censoring the political viewpoints of their opponents. The fact that they support this reveals how intellectually dishonest these people are. Their entire world view is based off of childish emotional reactions instead of reasoned objective logic.
The great Twitter purge is in full swing. It will be interesting to see who is left standing. I personally dare @jack to ban Donald Trump.
