Free-speech advocate and well-known Conservative @Instapundit suspended on Twitter
People get suspended on Twitter every day and let’s be honest, it is a private company and can honestly do as it pleases when it comes to policy and procedure. This suspension however is newsworthy because the person in question is Instapundit, aka Glenn Reynold, a well-known columnist for USA Today and what many would call a “staple of Twitter.”
Apparently in response to the riots … err… protests in Charlotte, Reynolds suggested motorists not sit in their cars waiting to be beaten to death. Sure, he was far more direct in his tweet but the intent was defense, not murder.
Huff Post and other “media” outlets are already writing about Reynolds being suspended but are not sharing the actual tweet, and of course they’re calling the people surrounding vehicles “demonstrators” instead of what whey really were, rioters.
