Twitter Permanently - Finally - Suspends Former KKK Leader Duke


Twitter has permanently suspended white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke for violating its rules regarding hateful conduct, a spokesperson confirmed to Rolling Stone.

A spokesperson said ...
The account has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of the Twitter Rules on hateful conduct, This enforcement action is in line with our recently-updated guidance on harmful links.”
This is Twitter’s “most severe enforcement action.

In recent months, Duke had tweeted misleading information about COVID-19, as well as anti-Semitic and racist content. According to a cached version of his Twitter, his last tweet promoted a video espousing a COVID-19 conspiracy theory. He was banned from YouTube last month for promoting hate speech, along with a number of other far-right extremist figures.

Twitter’s ban of Duke comes on the heels of what appears to be a recent initiative cracking down on misleading information and hate speech. In March, it updated its rules regarding hateful content on the platform. Last week, as Rolling Stone reported, Twitter also removed 7,000 accounts associated with the conspiracy theory QAnon, though some critics speculated that the ban may prove to be ineffective at curbing such content on the platform.
