    As per report:

    “Twitter banned Breitbart tech editor and openly gay conservative Milo Yiannopoulos for life last month after his followers tweeted objectionable comments targeting African-American “Ghostbusters” star Leslie Jones, but a recent case in London’s Old Bailey shows Twitter took a hands-off approach to the poisonous posts of Anjem Choudary.”

    “Jurors in the United Kingdom were told this week that British authorities repeatedly sought to get Choudary’s Twitter posts and YouTube videos taken down after his pledge of allegiance to ISIS surfaced online. Choudary, who in interviews with Fox News and other media has for years made no secret of his embrace of Shariah law and Islamic radicalism, was convicted Tuesday of "inviting support for a proscribed organization," namely ISIS. He faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced next month.”

    "An Islamic hate preacher convicted of inciting terrorism: fine," Yiannopoulos told FoxNews.com. "A gay man expressing concern about Muslim immigration: not fine. Welcome to the new, Shariah-compliant Twitter."

    Sounds bad. But twitters policies can be inconsistent.

    It's erotica for the 27%ers. Maybe there is something to the idea that pr0n is addictive...

    Some users are smart enough to ride the line with what is considered acceptable content, others are not.

    Welcome to the world of social media, @FieldingMellish .

    As much Big Government conservatives like to ban/lock-up/torture/execute users who do, I doubt simply pledging allegiance to ISIS in words is enough to get anyone removed from any popular social media sites. If he was dumb enough to threaten violence directly or incite racist trolls as Yiannopoulos did, sure, he probably would be banned.

    Merely "objectionable comments" or "direct racist attack"? One is understandable, the other is fascist. By the sounds of things, Milo was targeting her and not actions she did. I can see why he got suspended.

    Her own record of anti-white comments ranks up there as well in terms of vulgarity and narcissism, apparently:

    (click at your own peril and/or enjoyment, but she still isn't going to be "the next Don Rickles"...)

    "Choudary currently has more than 32,000 followers on Twitter and his account can still be viewed online."


    Just pointing this out so that it's clear. Twitter on the same wavelength at Obama.

    Yiannopoulos was subject to several warnings from the social network over the course of his Twitter career and had lost his blue verification check mark in January for violating Twitter’s rules. If he tries to return to Twitter, the site will probably notice and take action to remove him again, quickly. The question becomes whether it’s even possible for Twitter to give the same scrutiny to the mob of regular accounts that harassed Jones on Monday. How long would it take for Twitter to discover if they return?
