RE: Twitter suspends alt-right accounts
This article popped up in my facebook feed from a libertarian e-zine that I'm unfamiliar with. Seemed relevant.

"Twitter user runs experiment, writing one post angry at whites for voting Trump, second with identical wording at blacks for voting Hillary. Predictably, anti-white tweet was fine, anti-black tweet was banned."

Yabut, you didn't post it as a white male so yours doesn't count.

One was probably flagged as alt-right by their algorithm and the other one wasn't. It shouldn't be that surprising.

hmmmmm ... so I actually read the feed. I didn't see anything on there the least bit provocative. I mean except for that business about stopping the executions in Egypt. now that's offensive. Why do you feel the content of the feed shouldn't be approved?

Not that I have any affection for the Muslim Brotherhood (on the contrary), but your article present them as more moderate and sympathetic than the ones about the Alt-Right.

This article, from an atrociously biased website, makes a better job at presenting them as dangerous

This one, also biased, also present the Brothrhood in darker shade and in a less openly "anti-muslim" way.

I'm well aware of their international notoriety. Now what is it about their feed which makes you think it should be banned? Or do you want to censor based on international notoriety?

Personally, I don't want to censor anyone, even them. I am just pointing out how it is strange that they banned one group that seemed hateful, and not the other.
