Twitter has suspended hundreds of accounts after users on pro-Trump Reddit forum r/The_Donald coordinated efforts to set up 'non-player character' profiles mocking liberals on the social networking site.
The trolling campaign was born out of the characterisation of liberals as automatons incapable of independent thought on areas of Reddit and 4chan.
In 24 hours there were more than 30,000 uses of the term NPC on Twitter, and Facebook pages dedicated to the trend have amassed tens of thousands of followers.
So what is an NPC?
It's a video game reference.
Non-player characters (NPCs) are controlled by the game's artificial intelligence rather than the player. As a result, they're limited to certain scripted responses and actions.

Democrats as NPC’s
That’s funny. I’d always thought of them as Zombies

Youre a racist
Trump is a dictator
You hate people of color
That this meme was getting under their skin so badly shows how accurate it was about the Lefts behavior.
Its worth checking out some of the threads on r/The_Donald about this. There is some good and funny stuff in there.
One of the funnier things to me is that it just so happens that the PBS logo strongly resembles the gray NPC man prototype.
For you non gamers (most people) comparing SJW’s to NPC’s is hilarious. Twitters reaction proves the point.
They are correctly concerned. NPC is the winning ticket for the Chilean Helicopter Tours of the Gulf Stream. The question is Can they change?
Good post #3
Captured the moment.
Orange man bad is hilarious. Seems SO robotic.
I’ve lost over 200 followers in the last week.
Bingo. They’re proving the point.
BBC is a NPC with a British accent!
This explains it, well done and funny:
What’s an SJW?
Mark Dice’s video today is hilarious:
See his clip of NdersonPCooper at 2:30.

Since the Left owns social media, its no surprise they would want to control content. Its not like they are known for unbiased media. If anything, seeing conservative content on their sites must make their blood boil.
