Milo Permanently Banned From Twitter

(1) Twitter is idiotic
(2) Milo sometimes goes too far
(3) Some of Milo's fans are total shits
(4) Twitter is biased against conservatives; lefties can get away with much worse.

I don't have time to figure out what exactly happened.

Milo "sometimes goes too far"? Sometimes?

Milo's mistake, as I understand it, was being a shit upwards (towards a celebrity). Do that you get banned, shit downwards and Twitter let's shits be shits.

And I'd like to see some evidence of #4. It may be true but...

*I don't use twitter, I think it is idiotic, but will occasionally look at a feed when someone points me to it.

Well, in Milo's case, he was basically banned for inciting harassment of the actress in question, though he didn't do anything to directly encourage people to do that. She, however, had, in the past, encouraged her followers to harass someone she didn't like (I think "get 'em" was the direct quote.)

I'm probably not going to go dig up the evidence, but there's a fair bit out there if you're interested. (Though, for all I know, there's contrary evidence, too, that I haven't seen.)

Facebook, of course, is famous for its leftward bias. There's an experiment in which someone wrote the exact same things from two different accounts, but made one anti-Israel, and the other anti-Palestinian. Other than that, the posts were basically identical. The anti-Palestinian one was banned. The anti-Israel one never was.
