Tweet ‘learn to c*de? Get suspended; Tweet that a conservative woman is a ‘nappy headed nigga’? No suspension

Conservative Amy Holmes shared this disturbing meme and message she received as a Twitter DM. You’d expect that after she reported it to Twitter, Twitter would take action, right? RIGHT?


This was just sent to me as a DM. I rarely report Tweeters. I believe in free expression. And I have cut out this person’s twitter ID here. No need to gang up. But so that people know, stuff like this gets people blocked and reported by me.

Wrong!
Apparently calling a black conservative a “nappy headed nigga” is “not in violation of the Twitter Rules”:

Just received this from Twitter: “Hello, Thank you for your report. After investigating, we have determined that the account is not in violation of the Twitter Rules (https://twitter.com/rules ).” Good to know. Sending personally targeted racist messages is technically w/in bounds.

So, what are the rules, exactly? It’s a mystery:
Calling me a “Nappy headed nigga” DM with a screen grab expressing literal “hate” may not violate Twitter’s rules for targeted harassment, but they violate mine and get the sender blocked.

Do better, Jack:
An eye opener about what Twitter regards as hate speech. Calling me a “Nappy headed nigga” w/ screen grab literally expressing hatred of me: “Hello, Thank you for your report. After investigating, we have determined that the account is not in violation of the Twitter Rules”

Using “hate” in a message is not “hate speech”:
Correct. Sending a DM to a person literally using the words: “I hate you. I hate you. I don’t even know you and I hate your guts” prefaced with “Nappy headed nigga” does not violate Twitter hate speech rules. Interesting.

Now compare that to conservative @RightGlockMom who had her account suspended for 12 hours for daring to type “learn to c*de” in a response to Michelle Malkin. This wasn’t an attack against any journo, mind you. It was just a snarky comment:

Twitter, YOU have a problem. FIX THIS.

  1. Twitter does not have "rules" that mean anything; twitter has an AGENDA that means everything.
