Trump still has me blocked, that being said they rarely block anything so if this is true he must've really pushed it.

Twitter is a private corporation and can do whatever it wants. However, it is telling that they have resorted to censoring his tweets, especially ones about early voting in swing states and purchasing merchandise from his campaign. It seems Crooked Hillary really does need everything but the kitchen sink to help her win this election. Weak!

Since Twitter's disastrous IPO, it has lost 50% of its value. Mr. Trump should buy Twitter and fire the current employees.

Did you miss the whole part above about posting the same thing over and over changing just the state name. Probably a spam algorithm doing it's normal thing automatically. If you did the same thing here, it wouldn't go over too well either. Instead of spamming, each state should have had a completely different tweet sent out.

But anything to complain about, right Zin?

So twitter hid tweets that probably triggered their spam filter. Let me go get my tin foil hat why that might be

He wouldn't have to fire them. He would only have to sexually harass the women and not pay the men (and women too)

Nice job working in Hillary and their share price. What the **** do either of those have to do with Twitter enforcing their TOS?

Donald couldn't afford to buy Twitter and we all know banks won't lend him money. Well, US banks. I wonder how many rubles one would need to buy them.

Then why did they remove the other tweets that were not repeated?

There could be a lot of reasons. Maybe at the time, many many people reported the tweet as spam or offensive. Are you certain that a human has to be involved with hiding or deleting tweets?
Of course. Otherwise Hillary's account would have no tweets.

Congrats on proving you have zero credibility.
[doublepost=1475865431][/doublepost]Every tweet I clicked on in the article still exists, so clearly they weren't deleted.

This is clearly their timeline algorithm filtering out repetitive crap that looks like a spam bot.
Right. The algorithm is trying to filter repetitive tweets, so it picked up Trump's spamming.

Of note, Trump's largely wrong about early voting deadlines.

If twitter really wanted to sideline Trump's campaign, they would either delete his account entirely.. or show every thing he tweets. he's his own worse enemy.

Hillary Clinton doesn't behave like a complete moron on Twitter. (see: Spreading insane conspiracy theories a former Miss Universe appearing in a sex tape)
he also retweeted that completely fabricated "statistic" of black on black crime which sourced a study (which didn't exist) from an agency that also doesn't exist. lmao. but those are the stats his supporters want to hear. ****ing pathetic.

A reality show is not a sex tape. A sex tape is a sex tape.

You would think Trump would know the difference considering he has been on a reality show and his wife has been in softporn photo shoots. Not to mention his own cameo for playboy.

Source for this, please.

BL.
It's a hidden camera/night vision shot of her with a dude under some blankets. Not explicit at all. You literally can't see anything.

There's also a bunch of videos of actual porn that aren't this girl but had her name on it. Trump tried to claim those were actually her.

Just another example of how Trump is a piece of **** womanizer. His wife has appeared in more graphic things than Alicia Machado.
