Twitter Plans ‘Hate Speech’ Crackdown After Backlash From Upset Employees

Twitter is planning to accelerate changes to the company’s speech policies after a backlash from its own employees who want the company to ban right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, responding to a critical tweet from a Twitter engineer, said Wednesday he is “not happy” with Twitter’s current policies, which he said need to “evolve.”

Twitter vice president Del Harvey also sent a company-wide email Wednesday pledging to accelerate Twitter’s efforts to crack down on “dehumanizing hate speech,” in the wake of internal “conversations” about Jones.

Harvey noted that Twitter also plans to evaluate whether the company needs to better police “off-platform behavior.”

It is a sad day when conspiracy theories and alternate views of the world are considered hate speech, but you can post a picture of yourself holding up the cut off head(fake) of the president and as long as you're a liberal you will be cheered for your talent. You can also paint a picture of Jesus(the Son of God) being defecated on and be praised but if it is a picture of Mohammed(just a prophet) you will be beheaded.

As a matter of fact,look for it; it's coming.

Anything deemed “hate speech” will mean anything that goes against the liberal brainwashed mindset.

Neither of the companies mentioned above will EVER have enough manpower to screen out and censor all the so-called bad speech to everyone's satisfaction, so therefore, companies that go down the censorship road will whither and die a long, slow death.

Better to stick with "No porn, cussing and don't feed the trolls."
