Milo Yiannopoulos’s Twitter account suspended – Jul. 19, 2016

It has removed Milo Yiannopoulos, the widely-followed tech editor of conservative site Breitbart, from its platform.

Yiannopoulos, who had more than 350,000 followers, has been a provocative and unapologetic voice on the platform. He’s been vocal in the contentious movement known as GamerGate, which claims to promote ethics in gaming journalism but has been condemned for its treatment of women. And most recently he was seen as an instigator for the hate spewed at Jones. She called him out on Twitter Monday evening and separately criticized the platform for its inability to filter hateful content.

Shortly after that, Twitter CEO and founder Jack Dorsey tweeted at Jones to direct message him to discuss the issue. Roughly 24 hours later, Yiannopoulos received a notification, obtained by CNNMoney, that his account had been “permanently suspended.”

According to the notice, he’d violated “rules prohibiting participating in or inciting targeted abuse of individuals.”

Yiannopoulos wrote a scathing review of Ghostbusters, published Monday on Breitbart, “Teenage Boys With Tits: Here’s My Problem With Ghostbusters.” In it, he wrote that Ghostbusters was a “film acting as standard bearer for the social justice left … full of female characters that are simply stand-ins for men plus a black character worthy of a minstrel show.”

The review coincided with the deluge of hate tweets toward Jones — but Yiannopoulos told CNNMoney that he’s “not responsible for what strangers on the Internet post.”

Yiannopoulos called Twitter’s rationale “literally a lie. It’s obviously a political maneuver …. This is the beginning of the end for Twitter.”

Yiannopoulos believes he’s being silenced because he’s a “gay conservative.”

“Gays are always canaries in the coal mine. This has given them the excuse they needed because [Leslie Jones] is a black woman,” he said. “Twitter has just died as a free speech platform.”

The notion of toeing the line between hate speech and free speech has proven difficult for Twitter, which has been widely criticized for its failure to crack down on online harassment.

“We know many people believe we have not done enough to curb this type of behavior on Twitter. We agree,” read a statement from Twitter sent to CNNMoney.

“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,” the statement read. “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.”

Yiannopoulos, who is currently at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, has been temporarily suspended from the platform multiple times in the past but never told that his account would not be restored.

By Wednesday #FreeMilo was trending as some users criticized the removal of Yiannopoulos and labeled Dorsey an enemy of free speech.

A few even talked of suspending their Twitter accounts in protest.

Yiannopoulos’ suspension was first reported by Buzzfeed News.

Twitter Exile Has Been Bad for Milo Yiannopoulos’s Brand

Ad will collapse in seconds CLOSE the attention economy November 4, 2016 10:37 a.m. By Jesse Singal

You may not remember Milo Yiannopoulos, the failed London tech entrepreneur who adopted a white-nationalist persona beloved by scores of 20-year-old white college bros convinced political correctness is the reason no one will sleep with them. If not, thats understandable his public visibility took a bit of a dive after he got banned from Twitter, in July, for sending the many Twitter-guppies who followed him around online after the actress Leslie Jones, leading to one of the worst and most famous Twitter-harassment incidents in the sites history.

How big a dive? Theres a graph for that.

Lets zoom out a bit:

Whats interesting is that, judged by different metrics, Yiannopoulos, who has a day job as Breitbarts tech editor, has done well since his Twitter ban. Hes basically spent the period speaking to what appear to be good-sized college crowds, conducting stunts like bathing in pigs blood in Chelsea to make some sort of super-edgy and interesting point about Muslims (ISIS immediately disbanded), and getting written up for bizarrely credulous and glorifying profiles in Bloomberg Businessweek, and, much to the chagrin of the magazines readership given Yiannopouloss self-hating gay shtick, Out (in the former article, author Joel Stein printed, unchallenged, Yiannopouloss far-fetched claim that he has a staff of 30 he pays $1 million a year).

But at the end of the day, either people are searching for your name on Google or they arent, and undeniably, Yiannopouloss absence from Twitter has hurt his ability to build his brand. Its an interesting data point, since the internet smart set likes to tell people that Twitter actually doesnt drive much traffic, is terrible from an engagement standpoint, and so on. Thats true, but its also the best way to insert oneself into the ongoing daily conversation held by journalists (many of whom followed Yiannopoulos out of morbid fascination despite being disgusted by him) and the other people who devote disproportionate amounts of their lives to putzing around online. Without being on Twitter its really hard to stay visible to please forgive me influencers. There are just too many other distractions vying for their attention.

The above graph also ties into the perpetual argument over whether or not dont feed the trolls is a reasonable approach to loathsome figures like Yiannopoulos. Now, this expression can mean at least a couple different things. As anti-online-abuse advocates rightly point out, dont feed the trolls doesnt work if you get dogpiled by thousands of Yiannopouloss sociopathic fans it didnt help Leslie Jones. In this sense, dont feed the trolls is dumb advice.

But the line can also be applied to the many Twitter subcultures whose members hold that its always vitally important to call out offensive remarks, to hold them up to show people how awful they and the person uttering them are. Here, there could be some wisdom to starving the trolls. Yiannopoulos generates offensive remarks like Alex Jones generates conspiracy theories, and he benefited bigly, as his daddy might say, from having mastered the art of online shit-stirring and leveraging outraged reactions to his dumb opinions into yet more outrage and yet more shit-stirring. This was always his only chance at being interesting enough for normal people to pay attention to him, and now its mostly gone, because hes lost access to the social-media platform that is most fueled by outrage.

This is one of those many occasions on which its appropriate to give The Simpsons the last word:

Activists Crash Stage, Threaten Milo Yiannopoulos at DePaul

Yiannopoulos attempted to continue the event, but protesters refused to leave the stage and the group of security guards (which DePaul forced both the organisers and Breitbart to pay for) refused to intervene.

The male ringleader continued to pace along the stage with his whistle, refusing to let Yiannopoulos speak for extended amounts of time, while the female ringleader forcibly snatched the microphone from the interviewers hand and shouted at Yiannopoulos just inches away from his face.

The male ringleader screamed Feel the Bern and chanted against Donald Trump, whilst the female ringleader chanted Black Lives Matter.

Responding to the amount of black female protesters who had turned up, Yiannopoulos hypothesized that it was because he had sex with their brothers.

I give it 20 minutes, announced Yiannopoulos. The black incarceration rates are about to go up.

The female ringleader also claimed that she had been silenced for 200 years, prompting Yiannopoulos to question how the supposed 200 year-old protester looked so young.

After an extended period of time, the crowd started to chant Do your job at security, who remained at the back of the venue for the entire event. When security refused to intervene, Yiannopoulos posed for pictures with fans in the audience, and ordered the crowd to follow him to the college presidents office.

I suggest we walk to the presidents office and complain now. Let us go and express how you feel to the president about your safety, he remarked.

After Milo and most of the crowd left in a march for the presidents office, a minor scuffle between protesters and fans occurred back by the stage. Black Lives Matter and Milo fans chanted against each other outside the venue, with Milos fans chanting USA and Breitbart!

Outside the event, mayhem continued, with Milos 550-strong audience clashing with a huge crowd of left-wing activists. One attendee, Matt Forney, was grabbed by activists as he attempted to film the march.

Yiannopoulos confirmed to his followers that he had not suffered harm and blasted the schools security officers for their failure to intervene.
