Milo Yiannopoulos Briefly Booted From Twitter, Then Reinstated Because the World is Terrible


For a moment, it looked like this horrible week might have brought at least one piece of good news, for earlier this morning, Gamergate icon/non-payer of writers/generally shitty human being Milo Yiannopoulos was booted briefly off Twitter. It’s unclear exactly what he did to finally get summoned to the headmaster’s office, or even if the ban was intentional or some sort of server glitch, but Yiannopoulos is back, proving again that you can be as obnoxious as you like on the internet, provided you’re a white man. Shame on us for thinking Twitter might have actually done something right for once — instead, it remains a platform for Yiannopoulous and his fellow “alt-right” assholes to stand on several milk crates and shout “Look at meeeeeeeee!” Because why would anything good ever happen?
