Twitter Doubles Down: Milo’s Podcast Account Banned

http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2016/0...banned-twitte/

The twitter account for Milo Yiannopoulos’s weekly podcast has been suspended, as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey continues to wage war against conservative media.
The suspension comes after Twitter permanently banned Milo from Twitter in July, when he criticised actress Leslie Jones and her role in the box office flop Ghostbusters.

The podcast has been a massive success since its launch, with Milo talking to high-profile guests including conservative commentator Ann Coulter, pharmaceutical tycoon Martin Skhreli, and TIME journalist Joel Stein. The show debuted as the 21st-most popular podcast on iTunes.

“The Milo Show” Twitter account is not run by Milo himself and merely operates as a platform to promote the latest episodes of the show. It has never violated Twitter’s terms of service.

Twitter has not yet provided a justification for the suspension.

In a statement, Milo Yiannopoulos said:

“Twitter is clearly stupid as well as biased. As election day nears, they’re doubling down on attempts to influence the result, yet all this is likely to do is make more people sympathize with our side. I will get a larger audience from this, not a smaller one.

Moreover, there is no escape for Twitter on the question of political bias now. My podcast account was not managed by me, and never violated Twitter’s terms of service. I suspect this ban is like the last one — part of the company’s desperate attempts to appease left-wing celebrities.

It won’t help. As we recently reported, the company’s co-founder is already recommending a buyout. It’s the end of the road for Twitter — no wonder they want to use all the dwindling influence they have, before it’s gone completely.”

His banning had nothing to do with the political content. It was an issue of online bullying, and encouraging his followers to bully a woman.

I'd encourage anyone not familiar with this man or his history to take 5 minutes and do some research.

Yup. Internet censorship is here. It's not in full force yet, but you can see it revving up. Now they want to start banning linking to articles:

I googled this guy and took an instant dislike, the fact that he's camper than a row of tents isn't the problem, it's because he's another talentless obnoxious little twat.

He may not be your 'cup of tea', but he should not be banned from Twitter.

If you don't like him, it's easy enought to simply stay away from him.

I mean you have to actually go looking for him in the first place.



Have you seen the people that Twitter allows/encourages?

I googled him once because of the thread, I have zero interest in Twatter and the like. If he got banned from breathing I wouldn't care.

It has nothing to do with his opinions.

He crossed a clear line when he encouraged his followers to harass a woman. That, not his political beliefs, is why he was banned.

I'm kind of surprised that you're supporting someone with ties to people charged with terrorism related offences.
