Last night after I retweeted a few things my account locked up. I asked Twitter support for help.
After that I changed my password. I still could not tweet, retweet, or like anything...
Then the wierdest thing happened...I lost all people I was following.

Current US law states in order to restrict or punish speech it must meet the following tests:
• the speaker must have the intention to incite unlawful action, AND,
• there must be the likelihood that unlawful action will be the consequence of said speech.
⤵️ #FreeSpeech
⤴️Only speech which poses "imminent danger" illegal
— time & again, courts both liberal & conservative tend to rule in favor of speech rather than it's restriction. The burden of proving intent to, & reasonable expectation of inciting, unlawful behavior is high.
⤵️#FreeSpeech
⤴️Only speech which poses "imminent danger" illegal
— it's ironic that universities/academics are leading the charge against "hate speech", given should they succeed, protests against ANYTHING will be illegal.

#Freespeech is a human right. If someone wants to criticise an ideology then it's their right as a human being to be able to do so.

Especially if that someone is living in western society which guarantees an individual's right to freedom of thought and expression.
If criticising an totalitarian ideology is a crime because it might offend some1 then why people are allowed to criticise Nazis? It might offend anti-semites.

Why criticise communism which has killed more than 100 million innocent people so far? It might offend the communists.
Everytime in human history when people have been banned from criticising an ideology it results in mass slaughter of innocent humans.

Even today, look at Islamic countries where criticism of Islam is considered blasphemy. Human rights violations are rampant. No minority rights.

Breaking silence on #QFDShadowbanned~ Twitter is now lying to us, and insulting our intelligence.

To me, lying about the shadowbans is even worse than continuing them, and it's something that we know is happening, because of Project Veritas capturing it on film.
@RepMattGaetz...
If @RepMattGaetz wants to help Americans, he must know this:

1) it is in fact an FEC violation-

2) you must demand that Twitter Release their Algorithms- and have them analyzed by numerous independent third-party experts

3) Twitter already lied to Congress (felony)

We need...
An #InternetBillOfRights.

Look, I hate Big Government.

The alternative, is that we live in a Marxist Utopia, an Orwellian society of which liberal #BigTech manipulates the opinions of the public through algorithmic censorship.

An #IBOR must be drafted by Congress, immediately.

Please read this thread @davies_will which addresses your @gdnlongread @guardian: “The #freespeech panic: how the right concocted a crisis” bit.ly/2LY5AQ7. The idea that #FreeSpeech is now a "conservative issue" is sprinting to become the new dogma. 1/10
In the process, the article lumps together a cast of characters including @sapinker, @NAChristakis, @RichardDawkins, @SamHarrisOrg, & @JonHaidt — none of whom are conservative — as if they are part of an epic right-wing ruse. 2/10
It’s part of the trend over the last few months in which people 1) label concerns about #freespeech “conservative,” 2) dismiss these concerns & then 3) explain what is “really going on” with the already-dubbed-fake concern that they concluded is mostly “naked self-interest” 3/10

LISTEN to what Sessions said before the #LockHerUp chants started.

The Left seized on the interruption to his speech, only drawing attention to them being #CrybabySoreLoser #Snowflakes with post election therapy to college students. 😂😭❄️🍼😾🖍️ 

I'm still looking for a video of the full speech or at least the part after the interruption but I think it's HYSTERICAL comedy gold that the Left has drawn attention to a speech on #1A #FreeSpeech #CampusSpeech. Excerpts to follow.

JFC.... Rep @keithellison, a member of our CONGRESS and former #DNC leader, who is now RUNNING FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL in #Minnesota is literally trying to get BOOKS BANNED on @Amazon based on what alt-left hate group SPLC thinks is "hate speech."
The day @Amazon agrees to BANNING BOOKS based on this hateful group who has maliciously and falsely slandered people is the day I will cancel my Prime membership and never order from them again.

I met him and we talked about his career and our First Amendment lawyering experiences when his granddaughter married my son.

I changed my profile pic & the last line in my bio

Do not fear I have lost my focus or my desire to fight for the side of Right

But I'm going to shift tactics a bit because the Left has given us an opening

They have lost their ever-lovin' minds & are showing it
My bio was
Former Special Forces "so expect precision fire"
I did that to rile up PC speech bullies who say you can't use scary metaphors

I'm not caving a bit on the #FreeSpeech front
If anything I'm doubling down
But I'm going to change my tone a bit

From wicked to mocking
For the Right to prevail
We must draw our side together
By reconciling w/ folks who agree on issues but don't love #Trump
&
Reaching out to folks who used to be Democrats
Until their party went full #FeelTheBern

They don't want to be socialist America-haters
So join us

To those who support #FreeTommy / #TommyRobinson, from someone with the actual qualifications to know what they’re talking about. A THREAD.
I’m a reporter who witnessed Tommy both live streaming in front of jurors outside #LeedsCrownCourt and him being sentenced inside the court.
For justified legal reasons, the press have been *temporarily* banned from reporting on a trial that is being heard in the court, but *will* report on it later this year. At the moment, we cannot even say which trial this is.

Thread on Tommy Robinson and UK Law:

1) Tommy Robinson was arrested last Friday for "Breaching The Peace" outside of a courtroom. Inside the court, jurors were considering verdicts for the defendants that Tommy was recording. #FreeTommy #FreeTommyRobinson #FreeSpeech
2) Here are the cases and the schedule. Because the grooming gang was so large, there are three total cases. Two of them are shown here with the current schedule.
3) The Jury had retired to consider the verdict. Knowing this, Tommy pointed out the overnight bags of the defendants when they were entering the courthouse. Tommy suspected the verdicts were in and would be delivered on that day.

(1) I said long ago that I gave up trying to support UK, but this is beyond the pale. I can barely even comprehend how bad UK has become regarding this Tommy Robinson case. While I'm sure I wouldn't like Tommy Robinson, non-controversial speech isn't what liberty is for.
(2) Liberty is for life, so people can live, and do the things associated with living, including finding income, home, food, spouse, children, family, and all that makes that good and continually improving, etc.
(3) UK Government has taken the position that they are against the life of their original citizens, and want to kill all of their original citizens, and replace them with evil people.

Hoy continuaba uno de los juicios a las bandas de pederastias paquistaníes que han asolado RU durante décadas.
Tommy Robinson ha sido detenido en la puerta de los juzgados de Leeds, por estar retransmitiendo en directo la llegada de los acusados.
"Tommy nos advirtió sobre estas bandas de violadores.
Os reísteis de él y le llamasteis racista.
Tommy morirá en prisión a manos de estas bandas.
Os reiréis y diréis que le está bien empleado.
Entonces recordaréis que tenéis UNA HIJA"
El enlace anterior, de Katie, podemos escuchar a una víctima de estas bandas, que llamó al programa de radio de Katie, para contar como las autoridades la habían amenazado con acusarla de racismo cuando intentó denunciar los abusos de los que era víctima. Llegó a tener un bebé...

Reading the #Laurier draft statement on freedom of expression. Some thoughts. 1/
Full statement is here: wlu.ca/about/values-v…

The statement mentions "thought" multiple times, incl as "critical thought" and "diversity of thought." But "knowledge" and its production not so much. Yet, I would say, the central goal of a university is knowledge production. 2/
The draft statement says, for instance, that @Laurier as an institution is "committed to advancing intellectual excellence rooted in diversity of thought and opinion in an inclusive learning environment." Let's ponder that for a bit. 3/

BREAKING: Identitarian Leader Martin Sellner detained by Uk police for "inciting hatred/tension between local communities"

defendevropa.org/2018/heritage-…
Imagine a country where you are detained for the intention of holding a speech. The reason for the detention is "inciting hatred".

It's like UK has some kind of Minority Report tech, as they detain people on the basis of what they are GOING to do. #FreeSellner #FreePettibone
So the speech was going to be about #FreeSpeech.

It wasn't even going to be about any controversial (by MSM standards) topics, such as immigration or leaving EU.

They were detained for their political views.

Part 1: March 7-8 thread, #Qanon asks to play "where's #Snowden" in the picture below. In China/HK? Live operation <24 hours? Taunts Snowden to "comb his hair". Seems related to #internetbillofrights, which Q says is less to do with AT&T and more to do with protecting #freespeech
Part 2: #Qanon paints the battle as vs the CIA

Brings up #Snowden's journey out of US, recapped here: skyscanner.com/tips-and-inspi… ...though, some say CIA agents helped him to Russia.

#Q also communicates to Julian Assange (L-6?). Was Eric Schmidt making CIA links around the world?
Part 3: #Qanon returns to #internetbillofrights, and how Q sees this as the necessary step to prevent censorship by social media giants, who #Q again argues is working in collaboration with the CIA. "The age of the MSM is over"

🤡 (1) Twitter has never been all that friendly to conservatives but more than ever accounts are vanishing, week long twitmo punishments handed out, IP bans, #shadowbans and now big accounts are under attack. Spoiler alert: it’s going to get worse and here’s why... #seanhannity
(2) We all got “the email” the one that basically debunked #RussiaBots but @SenFeinstein & @AdamSchiffCA still wrote a letter (more on that later) BUT did you read the blog $TWTR shared? Because it’s important they informed us they had partners helping now. Who are they?
(3) Let’s start with the big fish, Common Sense Media, based out of San Francisco, hugely funded and owned by James (aka Jim) Steyer and guess who his brother is??
