Advising Fired Journos to ‘Learn to Code’ Is the New Twitter Hate Speech

4

A while back, some journalists were mocking out of work coal miners and manufacturing workers when they lost their jobs, telling them to learn to code. So, when an announcement was made that some HuffPo and BuzzFeed journalists were fired, people tweeted they should learn to code.

It is now a reason for Twitter to SUSPEND people, but it wasn’t when journalists were mocking coal miners.

Gay Patriot put up an example.

These are the same people who allow constant death threats against the President and people on the right.

These are the people who allow calls to doxx children.

The Twitter Stalinists were getting a lot of bad press so they swung into action. The Twitter PR team claims the reason the comment was unacceptable was it became a targeted campaign.

Apparently targeting coal miners and manufacturing workers doesn’t count.

It was okay when they were doing this.

  • Twitter really has not been covering itself in glory lately. They suspend people for saying “Learn to Code” but were completely silent when people were tweeting that the Covington Catholic students should get tossed into wood chippers or locked in their school and the building set on fire. Where’s the justice that a snarky comments get people bans while outright death threats are yawned at?

    Twitter is like the rest of Silicon Valley: modern day authoritarian censors who pretend that they are more virtuous than the rest of us.

  • The old saying “They like to dish it out but they can’t take it” is appropriate here. My advise to Twitter is to stick it where the sun don’t shine you fascist snowflakes.
