Twitter Invokes 'Censorship Rule' in Suspension of Anime Right News

Press F for respects, because the Anime Nazis are in trouble again! Anime right news is well known amongst well-heeled internet trolls as "the most trusted name in shitposting." They are now taking up issue as to the reason why Twitter suspended their accounts. They are accused of being run by the Iran Secret Service. A large number of possibilities exist for the suspension. At the same time, Twitter suspended the "Anime Right Memetics" account. This, along with a number of journalists appears to be a "Coordinated Purge".

<a href="http://animeright.news/zanting/anime-right-news-suspended-by-twitter/">Reasons offered by Anime Right News</a> for the possible suspension include their support for controversial "Alt-Right" candidate Paul Nehlen, calling out Twitter for it's own shady activities and not giving a pass to Neocons regarding possible ground war in Iran.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAA, I&#39;m endorsing Paul Nehlen now<br>&quot;Paul Nehlen Endorses Anime Right News&quot; <a href="https://t.co/6WFGaw2x3j">https://t.co/6WFGaw2x3j</a></p>&mdash; Mr Ultra 4K (@nateultra4k) <a href="https://twitter.com/nateultra4k/status/940280980329205760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">December 11, 2017</a></blockquote>

Another possible reason for suspension is what Anime Right called Twitter's "censorship rule." This censorship occurs in many countries and approved and supported by Twitter. As for processing a successful complaint from government officials, companies, and any other outside party "about an illegal tweet," Twitter will notify users from the country that they can not see it. In other cases, the authorities may take unilateral action to block the entire social media site.

Anime Right then goes on to explain the Federal "Shall Not Censor" Legislation Nehlen supports that would reinforce the first Amendment's extension to social media. The first time any lawmaker in Congress had attempted such. Censorship, as defined in the proposed bill, would include Denial of platform access and "normal use thereof," Shadowbanning, "verified status" being based on anything other than identity authentication, throttling accounts or content without disclosure, "memory-holing" content without permission, manipulating the "trending" algorithms and demonetization for any lawful speech. For the purposes of the bill "lawful speech" is defined based on the standards in the U.S. Constitution (and <a href="https://8ch.net/index.html">8chan</a>) limiting only child pornography, explicit (and credible) threats of physical violence, doxxing and DMCA complaints as well as allowing any platform to not allow pornographic or sexually explicit material.
