As mentioned this morning in the Tech Crawl, Breitbart tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos had his @Nero account suspended on Twitter, apparently for being involved in a barrage of hate-filled Tweets directed at "SNL" and "Ghostbusters" performer Leslie Jones.
Given his large following on the social network, its's not surprising that reactions were strong in several directions. Here are some of the Tweets from today's heated discussion:
MILO DID NOTHING WRONG https://t.co/MAGjcVogFS— Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) July 20, 2016
To be crystal clear, they're really coming for Milo because of his political beliefs. This is just the beginning.#FreeMilo— Dave Rubin (@RubinReport) July 20, 2016
Today I am seeing a sustained attempt to equate banning Milo for actively encouraging harassment with "censorship." It's disgusting.— Matt Zoller Seitz (@mattzollerseitz) July 20, 2016
