Stacy McCain posted the boilerplatish correspondence he received from Twitter, and it doesn’t look good:
Your account was suspended because it was found to be violating the Twitter Rules (https://twitter.com/rules), specifically our rules around participating in targeted abuse.
Your account will not be restored.
There’s more. It’s worth reading, if you haven’t already.
It should have been expected. SJWs will get angry if Twitter backs down so soon.
There’s a reason corporations can easily hire left-wing extremists to pitch their products while conservative spokesmen would need to guard whatever they say. The SJWs would make Twitter pay a steep price.
Of course, this isn’t a free speech issue. Twitter isn’t the government. They can censor anyone they want for whatever reason. It’s just going to be pretty obvious who it is they’re throwing out, and who they’re not. (Remember: some people are probably dead because of “hands-up-don’t-shoot.”)
The trouble is, not only will we need to watch what we say, but given the possibility of shadowbanning (discussed earlier), we will always have to keep wondering if we’re still saying it.
I haven’t checked Twitter’s stock price, but its value went down for me as an ordinary user.
