Before you get too excited, 3.2 million rubles only comes out to about $42,000. Comrade Jack probably spends that on a nice night out in the Silicon Valley. Unfortunately, Twitter did not offer any immediate comments. Their PR department did drag out the usual ‘we’re worried about what this does to free speech in Russia’ trope. How tone-deaf are they to be concerned about free speech in Russia while stomping all over it here?

Twitter also denied they have allowed their platform to be used illegally. I guess that’s not including ISIS and the other State-sponsored terrorists who fly the bluebird on Mr. Dorsey’s dime.

The more significant issue is we are not even two months removed from the government of India slapping down Twitter because they wanted to ban specific speech. We have two foreign governments taking official sanctions against the Big Tech giant while our government does nothing to stop Twitter from removing individuals it dislikes.

When Jack is willing to defend ISIS, fight the Russians, but ban President Trump and Mike Lindell, there is a problem. Free speech, anyone?

Twitter temporarily suspends Majorie Taylor Greene’s account over COVID-related posts

Published

on

Twitter on Monday evening temporarily suspended the account of Georgia Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene after the Republican firebrand posted tweets the platform said violated its rules about sharing misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic.

Greene’s account was suspended for 12-hours following tweets Sunday and Monday that stated the virus was not dangerous for anyone under 65 who is not obese, therefore the “controversial” vaccine should be a choice. She also said there have been 6,000 vaccine-related deaths, appearing to have referenced an open-sourced database with disputed findings, according to The Daily Beast

“We took enforcement action on the account @mtgreenee for violations of the Twitter Rules, specifically the Covid-19 misleading information policy,” Twitter said.

The platform also labeled Greene’s tweets as “misleading” and referred platform users to information about the safety of vaccines, The Daily Beast also reports.

Trump praises Nigeria for banning Twitter in the country

Published

on

Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday praised the nation of Nigeria for banning the social media platform Twitter, which permanently suspended Trump from its platform earlier this year.

“Congratulations to the country of Nigeria, who just banned Twitter because they banned their President,” Trump said in a statement. “More COUNTRIES should ban Twitter and Facebook for not allowing free and open speech—all voices should be heard. In the meantime, competitors will emerge and take hold. Who are they to dictate good and evil if they themselves are evil? Perhaps I should have done it while I was President. But Zuckerberg kept calling me and coming to the White House for dinner telling me how great I was. 2024?”

Nigeria announced the suspension of Twitter’s operations in the country days after the social media giant removed a post from Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” Buhari’s deleted tweet said, according to the New York Post.

“The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday, citing the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence,” the country’s Federal Ministry of Information and Culture said.

Sen. Rand Paul plans to push back against Twitter for allowing people to post threats against him

Published

on

Sen. Rand Paul said during an interview on The Water Cooler with David Brody that he and his wife plan to push back against Twitter for permitting people to promote violence against him online.

The Senator, who was injured in 2017 when his neighbor assaulted him, recounted that on Monday his wife called and notified him about a suspicious envelope that arrived in the mail and appeared to contain powder. The outside of the envelope said, “I’ll finish what your neighbor started you mother—,” Fox News has reported. Paul told host David Brody that authorities have said that the material was not poisonous.



“But it’s still terror, you know, these people are still trying to terrorize us. But it’s not just in person,” the Kentucky Republican said, noting that he believes “people are being fomented and encouraged by Twitter. Twitter is allowing people on a daily basis by the thousands to wish that I would be assaulted, to think that it’s just hilarious that I was assaulted and nearly killed by an assailant, a couple years ago, and thinking it’s just great fun to encourage people to do this on Twitter. And Twitter doesn’t take any of this down,” he said. The lawmaker said that there are “people every day on the left, wishing me violence and encouraging crazy people around the country to attack me.”


Paul said that he and his wife “are tired of it” and will “be pushing back on Twitter.”

Richard Marx on Sunday tweeted: “I’ll say it again: If I ever meet Rand Paul’s neighbor I’m going to hug him and buy him as many drinks as he can consume.”
