Twitter should be called Fickle really. Some people can swing wildly on the one hand and on the other, the cancel culture doesn’t tolerate a speck of dust on uniform boot of others.

Political correctness decides what you can get away with

1/
I ran into Dr Anish Koka on Twitter.

Cardiologist, Blogger & Podcaster. Came across as conscientious, sensible, caring as a doctor, slightly right of centre & with astute questioning of health policy in his blogs & podcasts often with contrarian, yet logical views

2/
A recent tweet of his raised my eyebrows & I said ‘Uh oh’. Obviously a satire on Affirmative Action policy or rush of blood to the head. After some radio silence, realised he had deleted the said tweet, apologised for it & later his account was deleted.

3/
I can imagine the trolling & the instant vigilante justice that must have followed. It’s not in the nature of Twitterati to accept opposing views esp if they belong to someone with opposite political views. Detest this baying for blood

4/
I hope Dr Anish Koka gives a middle finger to cancel culture and returns to Twitter.

Would want more incisive thoughts like this on bite size pieces on Twitter
