Keith Olbermann and Half a Dozen Establishment Journalists Suspended by Twitter

RedState: My colleague Bonchie wrote Thursday evening about the suspension of journalist Aaron Rupar’s Twitter account, and already more suspensions have been handed down as the night progresses. Locked out of their accounts: bombastic critic-of-everything Keith Olbermann, New York Times technology reporter Ryan Mac, CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan, and Mashable writer Matt Binder. Independent journalist Tony Webster’s account was also suspended as of Thursday evening, as was Intercept reporter Micah Lee’s.

Olbermann’s toxic personality cost him his gig at MSNBC, and he’s famous for posting racist tweets (and then deleting them), calling everybody who doesn’t agree with him a fascist, and generally being a cranky, seemingly-unhinged flamethrower. You can’t access some of his more controversial tweets at the moment, because Olbermann is on a time-out.

It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

Twitter has yet to explain its rationale for suspending the accounts, but CEO Elon Musk has been adamant that anyone “doxxing” other people or revealing their current whereabouts will be suspended or terminated because they’re putting folks in danger.

The billionaire has a personal reason for his strong views on the matter: on Wednesday a person stalked Musk’s family. As RedState’s Nick Arama reported, “the person blocked his family’s car, thinking Elon was in it, and climbed on the hood of the car. Musk’s toddler son was in the car.” MORE

  1. They were doxing Elon’s current position in real time in hopes he would be killed.
    That is absolutely what they wanted.

    Their accounts should be incinerated permanently.

  2. Like Poso wrote, there needs to be an annual purge of liberal accounts.

    I say we go a little further and make hunting liberals a monthly occurrence until they are fully exterminated.

  3. Oh very bad boys! Only republicans can threaten online because they claim it’s freedom of speech & their God given right. Maybe we can convince Musk to be the first man to Mars with real time tracking.

  4. Well here’s a thought for a thread…

    The most punchable face!

    Or is it just a foregone conclusion that Olbermann takes the prize awarded as a No Contest situation?

    And what caliber punch should be used?

    Also asking for an acquaintance as I don’t have but two friends that might admit to it.
