Twitter has suspended several accounts belonging to prominent members of the alt-right movement.
One of the banned accounts belongs to Richard Spencer, who is credited with founding the movement with white nationalist leanings.
In a video posted two days ago, Spencer criticized Twitter’s actions as a kind of censorship. “It is corporate Stalinism, in a sense that there is a great purge going on and they’re purging people on the basis of their views,” he says in the video.
The company points to its policy as justification for the suspensions. What do you think of the ban? Would it achieve what Twitter and its supporters intend?
