Anything which they see as adversely affecting their advertising base they will rightly eliminate. Now you can disagree with whether or not what Twitter is doing helps or hurts their bottom line, but they've done the math, I haven't.

In a country that is 60% white, how does having racism towards whites help with the advertiser friendly image?

I'm guessing that Twitter is far more interested in a much wider global advertising base than a small percentage of white people (and at least one black man in NJ) in the US who consider it "racism towards whites". They're likely more concerned with considering and catering to the views of the rest of the world. As they should be.

Why do you think that? Did Twitter say that? That would be a very foolish way to run a global enterprise.

If that was the case a lot more than the alt right would be banned. Hell , atheist would be banned if that was the case.

Why would you say that? Atheism is a perfectly legitimate, tenable metaphysical position. There is nothing intrinsically hateful or spiteful about it. White supremacy on the other hand is neither legitimate nor tenable, metaphysically or otherwise. Its very foundations are built on hate and spite and resentment and fear and greed and egotism and fuck them what's in it for me. Doesn't seem anything like atheism to me.

RE: Twitter suspends alt-right accounts
Now we are mixing this up - twitter banned the alt right - facebook and google are banning sites that publish false news, made-up news and memes.

There is a difference, is one ok and the other not and why?

I agree, but could you tell are middle eastern friends that?

See my point above.

I agree, that is why I refute their claims. And do it over, and over and over. Refuting claims tends to kill ideologies or at least put them on their death bed. Just ask the creationist.

So is calling for the death of white people. Is there something in it for that?

We know that, but people who keep point to mao, stalin, pol pot, and even hitler(even though he wasn't an atheist) and think that atheism leads to that.

I am on the alt right thing. Something tells me they will let them back on soon however.

Only if our new government starts messing with the web, which is of course a possibility.

Hmmm, what if they did it to out Trump?

If he wants them put back, that will tell the world something. Will he tweet about how unfair it is?

No they will because as I said before, people are leaving twitter even though they weren't banned. On top of that competition is on the rise.
