One thing that should be clear is that @jack does not have a commitment to his customers safety, privacy or ability to communicate freely on twitter.
Imagine the temerity of these people. Discussing whether Eddie Izzard, a celebrity and public person, should be barred from commenting on transgender issues.
Clearly these people do not respect freespeech, commentary, satire and news, yet @jack allows them to habitually attack his consumers.
The #beyhive of @beyonce functions in much the same way. Launching attacks coordinated off their own forums and attacking Twitter consumers in droves.
Simply google “beyhive” to see. The news media is very kind and documents their actions.
The Ringer documented the Beyhive in an article entitled, “Inside The Beyhive” on June 3, 2016.
However @jack allows the beyhive to function as well.
What SEEMS to bother Jack is not that abuse on twitter exists and is rampant but an “uptick” in abuse.
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.”
Notice the artful phrasing of “uptick.” That is because Jack and Twitter tacitly condone attacks by SOME empowered abusers on twitter.
Twitter should do the right thing and ban the actual abusers.
Abusers such as @Randileeharper, @Spacekatgal, @glinner & @2dammuslim.
Abusers that target journalists in coordinated attacks and boast about it openly on Twitter.
Though the archives of the 3 below tweet s exist. The original twitter URL is presented.
The archive of Glinner’s tagging in @2dammuslim to attack journalist @ninjaeconomics contains Mr. Muslim’s response.
Here Randi Lee Harper tags in @popehat and @2dammuslim because Mr. Kern (@grummz) is himself a lawyer.
And @Jack should actually stop the abusive of professional journalists such as Kristen V Brown and Kassy Dillon.
Bit of advice for Vijaya Gadde. No, it’s not just you. But you do fuck yourselves, consumers, investors, advertisers and businesses with your openly hostile to consumers policies.
I personally never read any tweets by Mr. Yiannopoulis urging his followers to attack anyone.
I read them all the time from people like Brianna Wu (@spacekatgal), Martin Linehan (@glinner), Randi Lee Harper (@randileeharper) and Boner Poopman AKA Mr. Muslim (@2dammuslim.)
Oh yes, the targeted abuse mobs includes close coordination with media such as Jesse Singal, editor for NY Mag.
Actually Jesse Singal actively participates in the cyberbullying.
