This is obviously a free speech issue. Twitter has the right, as a corporation, to be associated with what ever speech on their platform they choose. It's the same as when we ban a user here who refuses to follow the forum rules. They don't want to be associated with Milo's speech, so they banned him. There is backlash of course.SAN FRANCISCO — For years, one of the main grievances among Twitter users has been the ability for anonymous trolls to send abusive comments to other people on the service.
But on Tuesday, Twitter barred one of the most egregious and consistent offenders of its terms of service, Milo Yiannopoulos, in an attempt to show that it is cracking down on abuse.
The ban against Mr. Yiannopoulos, a technology editor at the conservative news site Breitbart and known by his Twitter handle, @Nero, follows a campaign of prolonged abuse against Leslie Jones, a comedian and co-star of the recently released “Ghostbusters” movie. The film and its stars have come under fire from various parts of the internet for months, after it was first revealed that the reboot of the 1984 film would feature an all-female cast.
