you should have left it at "kill all the white people" and twitter would have left you alone.

Well duh! You should have just stuck with white people and maybe Twitter would have promoted your tweet. ?

Yeah, @nytimes could probably get away with it though. ?

Huh. So you're saying everything on the planet shouldn't die?
I completely thought you were serious.
Is it possible that they might have missed it too? Nah, they dont make mistakes.

First they came for the extinction event scale meteors, and I tweeted nothing…

First they came for the meteor of death. I did not object, because I was not a meteor of death…

That's what you get for procrastinating.

If you had caused extinction as promised in 2016, this never would have happened.
