One of the most popular bloggers at Breitbart just got banned permanently for 2 little tweets

Controversial gay Conservative Milo Yiannopoulos was kicked off of Twitter permanently on Monday, just moments before he held his “Gays for Trump” event at the Republican national convention.

The social media site accused the Breitbart editor of violating its rules against “targeted abuse” stemming from his fight with “Ghostbusters” star Leslie Jones, in a statement released Tuesday.

People should be able to express diverse opinions and beliefs on Twitter. But no one deserves to be subjected to targeted abuse online, and our rules prohibit inciting or engaging in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Over the past 48 hours in particular, we’ve seen an uptick in the number of accounts violating these policies and have taken enforcement actions against these accounts, ranging from warnings that also require the deletion of Tweets violating our policies to permanent suspension.

We know many people believe we have not done enough to curb this type of behavior on Twitter. We agree. We are continuing to invest heavily in improving our tools and enforcement systems to better allow us to identify and take faster action on abuse as it’s happening and prevent repeat offenders. We have been in the process of reviewing our hateful conduct policy to prohibit additional types of abusive behavior and allow more types of reporting, with the goal of reducing the burden on the person being targeted. We’ll provide more details on those changes in the coming weeks.

Yiannopoulos responded on Breitbart with a statement of his own.

With the cowardly suspension of my account, Twitter has confirmed itself as a safe space for Muslim terrorists and Black Lives Matter extremists, but a no-go zone for conservatives.

Twitter is holding me responsible for the actions of fans and trolls using the special pretzel logic of the left. Where are the Twitter police when Justin Bieber’s fans cut themselves on his behalf?

Like all acts of the totalitarian regressive left, this will blow up in their faces, netting me more adoring fans. We’re winning the culture war, and Twitter just shot themselves in the foot.

This is the end for Twitter. Anyone who cares about free speech has been sent a clear message: you’re not welcome on Twitter.

All of it started when Yiannopoulos wrote a negative review of the new “Ghostbusters” film, which puts him in the company of almost everyone who has reviewed the movie.

Jones reported Yiannopoulos.

During the spat between the two, some Twitter users tweeted racist statements and memes at Jones. Something that was pinned on Yiannopoulos’ fans.

Jones vowed to leave Twitter after all the vitriol.



Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey reached out to Jones directly to address her concerns.


But did Dorsey check into this tweet by Jones?


Following Yiannopoulos’ suspension, he arrived at his “Gays for Trump” event sporting a bulletproof vest.


And now a #FreeMilo campaign has begun in support of the Breitbart editor, even though Twitter assured Yiannopoulos that his account would not be restored.
