Twitter is cracking down on accounts promoting terrorism and violence, bringing the grand total suspended since 2015 to 360,000.
And no, they’re not just banning conservatives.

Yay Twitter? Hrm. Not something you see every day, someone happy about something Twitter did? That may be a first …

Oh there ya’ go, there’s your normal user. Shew! We were worried we’d stumbled upon some universe where people aren’t always irritated with Twitter for something.
@CNBCnow with what I find on twitter its hard to believe that anything gets suspended

@CNBCnow Share price will fall now due to less users. LOL!
