New White House Comms Director "Suspended" From Twitter One Day After Appointment

Tyler Durden's picture

It appears the mob has won (a battle, perhap not the war).

Following a coordinated alt-left attack targeting Hope Hicks' account, Twitter has suspended the new White House Communications Director's account after a mass-reporting.

Here is Hope's Twitter page...

The Alt-Left is cheering their victory...

We suspect Twitter will be more than a little embarrassed by this - it appears Jack Dorsey's sophisticated new anti-free-speech, censorship AI algos are really just mob-rule-driven - if enough people don't like what you are saying (or may say), they will comply...

We anxiously await President Trump's response.

The white house should find out who made that decision and then place that individual(s) on a no-fly list.

Depends on what you mean by Twitter - the users will love, the workers at Twitter will love - stockholders? Not sure they'll care... Besides the kitten videos my wife shows me, I am OK with not knowing what someone tweets.

Mass reporting of Trump on the way. Flash mobs

Send him with an airplane straight to NK. And thereafter put him on a no-fly list.

Why was it suspended? Is this some algo that responded based on the sheer volume of whine?

It's the Twitter version of an "antifa" riot.

Just amazing how unhinged these people are. I was checking out Twitter for news on the hurricane and those assholes were pooping out their nonsense all over the feed that people were trying to get life-and-death level info from.

I guess Hope Hicks is just a dumb hick afterall.

Twitter will probably respond eventually with apologies and a statement that this is not in accordance with their policies, blah, blah, blah. But, think about all the lower profile cases where they don’t even bother, because, they can’t. That’s the real problem with all these social media giants. They don’t have the resources or means to police their own systems or enforce their policies. If in fact they even care about that, then they are already too big to succeed.

"Newsman" Jules is just an asshole with a twitter account (and possibly a porn mustache, but I assume that's an inside joke). Fuck you, Jules.

Dont have fun.

 

Just report all new on all the tv and radio stations whenever you want. Your the fucking government right? If it's an opinion you have just shove it up your ass and get to work.

Like Bannon said, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and similar need to be declared "public utilities" and regulated as such.  They now are the "public square" and control speech in this country, and their idea of "free speech" is that you parrot their ideas.

Which means there is no freedom of speech anymore.

Kina's picture

They would need to be somehow bought under the 1st amendment so that freedom of speech cannot be curtailed by some left tard owners of twitters.

Maybe the WH should scare Twitter and their shareholders with a DOJ examination of declaring it a Public Utility.

Cutter's picture

Exactly, the mere discussion of it will scare them and their shareholders senseless.  The administration should have somebody in Congress introduce a bill, even if they have no intention of passing it.  It would have the desired effect.

Mimir's picture

We would just love that in Europe. Public utilities are forced by law to suppress hate speech.

I for one don't want this to happen. If Twitter gets this designation, what happens to gab.ai should it become popular?

What if every site deemed "social media" gets this designation? Think about the long game here.

Cash Is King's picture

I would agree at first glance because they are publicly traded and one could make the argument that they are utilities and should be regulated as such. That said, they charge nothing for their service which makes them proxies of their advertising base and it is up to them to regulate. My first salvo is the right (alt or otherwise) must vote with their feet and vacate said properties. More regulation is not the path to more freedom and protection of the 1st Amend. It's time we take action into our hands and rely on ourselves if we want to get shtt done!

Things that go bump's picture

I voted with my feet a long time ago. Deleted my accounts and haven't touched any social media since I learned of the uses the Government was putting them to. Also, I had pictures of my beaded Christmas tree ornaments up on Facebook, which were liked by a Moslem woman in Libya and a Moslem diplomat from Indonesia, both of which confused me until I realised they must have been fake.

Is that a tranny?

After Williams brothers being outed.. and Michael and her package..Ever wonder who else?  Cher was suspected to be tranny in 1970.. Steffi ?

Don't forget Ann Coulter with her huge Adams apple, height and those big hands. She hasn't been officially outed, but I don't believe she's a true XX. I've aways thought someone had done a good job there, but it's hard to hide certain physical masculine traits, even if the work is done when the patient is young. 

Kina's picture

The govt should develop its own version of Twitter.

Umh's picture

I have no desire to be bombarded with useless bullshit from the government. They would almost certainly make receiving the bullshit mandatory.

I have already been wakened by "amber alerts" in the middle of the night about problems hundreds of miles away.

G-R-U-N-T's picture

Obviously they are terrified of her, beautiful, articulate, intelligent, everything contrary to the progressive lib leadership and their useful idiot grunt's!

Anteater's picture

Every picture tells a story, don't it?

If she had a hook nose and harridan curly hair, you would

still be teen spiriting her, and I guess Bannon now, de juere.

They're just talking heads, stirring the sour poi of a yclept

and feckless overweight old man, who thinks he is Emperor,

as America drifts rudderless towards the precipice.

'BUY IVANKA'S STUFF!'

 

G-R-U-N-T's picture

It's more like they have a desire to hang, draw and quarter her to satisfy the blood lust of their anti-American, anti-individual freedom and liberty hating Statist gods!

Their bolshevik behavior is like watching a contortionist at a freak show carnival where the avid crowd looks on with anticipatory delight at the next painful twist of perverted twists and turns. Honestly, these naive and ignorant souls have absolutely no idea what they're doing to themselves.

Kina's picture

The problem twitter has is if it comes out as an obvious active opponet of Trump then they risk some 62 million voters.

So, yeh Trump coming out on this to his supporters would scare twitter somewhat.

NoWayJose's picture

Kellogg's, Target, the NFL, ESPN, and even Facebook are learning that!

Kina's picture

ALSO this sort of activity is just more ammunition against the Left when election time comes around.

 

CatsPaw's picture

This is bad... not because the "left won" but because everyone lost.

The moment you start shutting down the chance of any discussion between people who dont agree the higher the chacne they will agree less in the future.

America is really fast going to shit. Left on one side being empowered... how long till the right strikes back? Glad I dont live in the US.

Smilygladhands's picture

Shame the alt left do not have real jobs to occupy their time instead of twattering all day 

Crusader75's picture

There is no such thing as an "alt-left".

shovelhead's picture

Do you count Commies with bad haircuts?

Smilygladhands's picture

How about just "the left" then? 

Vimes's picture

The only way she should be suspended, is from  the ceiling...

Of course she is probably intelligent and articulate and all, but what are the chances of me ever finding that out, for myself???

Smedley's Butler's picture

Who gives a shit?!

Did she say something offensive?

Will the suspension last?

Who won what?

I don't get it?! What is wrong with our country?!

Renov8's picture

A bunch of snowflakes got their panties in a pinch...that is the problem with this country.  A fake problem being carried out, online, as if anyone really gives a shit.  The left hates reality, hence the reason for all the online temper tantrums.  Whiny little bitches they are...lol

The day after the election I saw an article from a liberal women's magazine on my Yahoo news feed and went to their comment section. I explained exactly why I, a lifelong Democrat, voted for Trump. I explained to several of the posters what an ad hominem attack was and that it signified that the attacker was out of verbal ammunition and had lost the debate. I explained that they really couldn't insult me and drive me off in that fashion, because their personal opinion of me was not of concern.  I write well and I have a fairly extensive vocabulary. Because I grew up in the 50's and 60's I was taught the rudiments of logic in high school. I have almost 50 years of adulthood under my belt. I was the only poster from the other side, and I interrupted their orgy of grief and disbelief with my opinions and a few inconvenient facts that they were sadly unable to refute. If I didn't change their opinions, I sowed doubt, and left them rather bitter.

"The left hates reality.."

Indeed, because it keeps showing them their philosophy is crap.  So that begs the question:  how much evidence will such people need to change their mind?  Answer:  None.  Evidence is useless against those impervious to reason.   That's why they're so emotional and resort to all manner of logical fallacies, believing they're actually advancing their own position.  Sad, bordering on pathetic. 

Vimes's picture

I don't know what is wrong with this country, can't take this shit seriously. Alt media trying to be important and "different " by doing the same shit as the MSM  does. 

Smedley's Butler's picture

You are right. I wasnt even referring to the left. The right sucks too. But so does the gallery that is watching and judging. This article belongs nowhere near the arms trafficking story above it.

Two words that Google, Facebook and Twitter might want to familiarize themselves with:
Public Utility.

Net neutrality in the form of making these idiots resposible to uphold the 1st Amendment will be the likely result. Stupid is as stupid does.
