You really don't like free speech do you? Her 1.1 million followers won't be happy about that. While I'm not a fan of her and her style, she does frequently make some very good points. But don't worry, she'll be back - if not on Twitter then on another platform. And this time she'll be stronger.

No one is violating her right to free speech - Twitter have just said that as she can't abide by their rules, for their site, then they don't want her in their house.

It's amazing that those who bang on most about free speech are those who would deny it to others....

Let me just correct that for you. I really don't like hate speech. You're apparently fine with it.

And she created a new account which was banned, leading to her permanant ban.

Yes, she's on something called Parler now....

Another factor to consider is who the crowd is. Conservatives are well known for just letting things pass (and it will be our undoing), while Leftists (many of whom radicalised by the schools of woke that are deeply embedded at western universities), are more inclined to jump in and voice their views. Point being: Wikipedia articles will inevitably contain the political biases of the majority of those contributing to and editing them.

Yeah, I saw that. Gradually Parler will take over from Twitter - especially with the far left now eating it's own - or rather those who aren't extreme enough.

Whether the likes of you or I agree with her or not, I'd say her problem is not so much what she says but the way that she says it - which does no favours to the causes she's championing. This YouTube poster in some ways is her Aussie equivalent. Saying that she's not very well known and maybe the lack of a confrontational approach like that used by Hopkins is the reason why....

You didn't read it in full did you. It very clearly went on to say that the more people jumped in (to use your words) the more unbiased the entries become.

So you are saying that leftists and people radicalised jump in and the article is saying the net result is less biased wiki articles.

Another own goal.
