Twitter transcended into chaos over the weekend, and if the people have spoken
may no longer be CEO. You live by the Twitter poll, you die by the Twitter poll.

from the app. It wasn't the most Christmasy thing for him to do. But everyone he suspended sucks at life and would have YOU deplatformed for looking at them cockeyed. I'm not going to pretend to feel bad.
