YES! Finally. SJWs have threatened Jack that they will leave Twitter on Friday, August 17th (today!) if he doesn’t ban Alex Jones from the social media giant. They call it #DeactiDay and chose an incredibly disrespectful name for it in ‘D-Day’.
And while it sounds like Jones was ‘locked’ for a week, his account is still on Twitter.
So that means all of these people screeching about not being on Twitter if he’s there are gone today, right?
Next Friday. We’re out. The only thing Twitter cares about is engagement. Let’s stop giving it to them. Reclaim your life. Reclaim your blood pressure. Reclaim your mental health. Please help spread the message. #DeactiDay pic.twitter.com/Y6TVMHyQfa

Seems Mike is still on Twitter.
Otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to grab his tweet.
And not only is Alex Jones still on Twitter, but he has his pretty blue check intact as well.
Sounds like Jack called their bluff.
Twitter is broken. You deserve better than an app that tolerates and welcomes the spreading of abuse and misinformation. Being part of this is not doing us any good. Personally, politically, socially. For a day, a week, forever: your call. It’s just a good time to go. #DeactiDay pic.twitter.com/LZEw78VYnp

Well … bye.
Wait, again, if Wil had taken his own advice wouldn’t he be deactivated by now? And oddly enough, we can pull his tweet.
i wrote about #DeactiDay, a growing movement to leave Twitter over its inaction when it comes to harassment, white supremacists, and the likes of Alex Jones, spearheaded by folks like @monteiro and @wilw https://t.co/nCtgLcdqkB

Spearheaded by people who aren’t leaving.
We've all seen the influence social media platforms have on the national discourse. For everyday users, the only way to exert influence on the platforms themsevels is our participation or non-participation. Even if it's just a temporary break, join #deactiday pic.twitter.com/RJPIzYawNp

Again, another person pushing #DeactiDay who happens to still be on Twitter.
Color us not shocked.

Yeah, us too. Probably because it sounds like if you have a blue check and you leave Twitter you lose your blue check. That and the majority of this was just another temper tantrum from our buddies on the Left.
Wonder how many of them have actually moved to Canada?
Former #StarTrek actor Wil Wheaton says Twitter’s primary use is “abuse, misinformation, and harassment,” permanently deactivates account as part of #DeactiDay: https://t.co/j41L5mK6N0 pic.twitter.com/1vbuVPwQNM

But he hasn’t … he’s up there. ^

Nope, she’s still there.
So many people I admire have quit @Twitter because of the abuse and bullying. This platform gave us the chance to engage with our heroes on a whole new level. It is so sad to see Twitter leadership lose sight of what made Twitter great to begin with. #DeactiDay #byetwitter @jack

For a bunch of people who claim they’ll leave Twitter if they don’t get their way, it sounds like they didn’t leave Twitter when they didn’t get their way. The fact we can pull their tweets at all is what makes this even more hilarious … and sad.
Color us not shocked.
