    USA has dropped columnist Cheri Jacobus after the the political strategist and frequent TV pundit insulted Republican consultant and Trump ally Michael Caputo’s daughters and suggested that they be used at “parties” by convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. “Our editors in the opinion section became aware of the tweet by freelance columnist Cheri Jacobus just after noon today,” a spokesperson for the company told TheWrap Thursday evening. “An hour later after researching the issue, our editors let Jacobus know that she would no longer be writing for USA TODAY,” the spokesperson added. “We have asked her to remove the USA...
  • Media figures lament toxic Twitter (Liberal Trolls Lament Being Trolled)

    High-profile journalists are saying they might leave Twitter after tweets attacking them and family members. The latest controversy is underscoring how the popular social media platform has become toxic in the current political climate. CNN reporter and commentator Chris Cillizza tweeted on Sunday that he was “about done” with Twitter, after tweets mocking his child’s peanut allergy. “We are talking about a 9 year old. Feel free to hate me. But don’t mock my son’s peanut allergy. Classless and indefensible,” Cillizza wrote. MSNBC Anchor Chuck Todd also offered support to Cillizza and criticized the abuse. “Every time I think Twitter...

  • Ugly tweets from Brewers’ Josh Hader surface during MLB All-Star Game

    Washington Post ^ | July 18, 2018 | Adam Kilgore
    Racist, homophobic and misogynistic tweets that Milwaukee Brewers reliever Josh Hader sent in 2011 and 2012 surfaced as he pitched in Tuesday night’s All-Star Game at Nationals Park, turning his appearance into an embarrassing stain for Hader and a public-relations nightmare for Major League Baseball. After Hader surrendered a three-run homer in the eighth inning, several Twitter users — starting, it seems, with an account named MLB Insider Dinger — found and retweeted messages Hader sent as a 17-year-old. The tweets included numerous uses of the n-word and an allusion to “white power” next to an emoji of a closed...
  • SEDITION! Democrat Congressman Steve Cohen Melts Down, Defends Tweet Calling for Military Coup

    This is the same clown who wanted to give FBI Agent Peter Strzok a Purple Heart!! ""Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) this week repeatedly defended his tweet that implied that America needed to have a military coup to remove President Donald Trump after his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump held a summit with Putin on Monday, in which the 45th president declined to directly chastise Putin for allegedly trying to influence the 2016 presidential election, even when asked by an Associated Press (AP) reporter to do so. President Trump blamed the Russia investigation for some of the friction between...

  • Twitter suspended 58 million accounts last quarter of 2017

    The Hill ^ | 07/17/18 | Ali Breland
    Twitter suspended at least 58 million accounts in the last quarter of 2017 according to numbers reviewed by the Associated Press. The new figure comes after the company confirmed that it separately booted another 70 million fake accounts from its platform between May and June. Twitter has been aggressively cracking down on fake accounts that have long plagued its platform. Analysts have speculated that Twitter in the past has been reluctant to kick off such users out of fear of hurting its user growth numbers. The companies stock initially took a brief hit after news of its move to remove...

  • Twitter culls fake followers, Democrats hardest hit

    American Thinker ^ | 14 Jul, 2018 | Monica Showalter
    Twitter announced it would be culling the platform's fake followers. It makes good business sense to do this, because fake followers on an individual account distort the influence ratings for advertisers, meaning that accounts full of fakes are a money-losing proposition for Twitter's real, paying customers. If an account has fake followers, it looks more influential than it really is. Well, guess what: there is an extraordinarily high number of Democrats, the kind who draw lots of media hype, with puffed up "it" status, loaded with fake followers. I checked with this site called TwitterAudit here. Some of these accounts,...

    Top public policy officials from Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet's YouTube division are set to testify before Congress on Tuesday to determine whether the companies were politically motivated in filtering content on their platforms. GOP Congressmembers have taken aim at the social media giants for what they have charged are politically biased practices in the content each site chooses to remove. The companies have denied such claims. The companies will send their top public policy officials to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, including Facebook’s head of global policy, Monika Bickert; YouTube’s head of global public policy and government relations Juniper...

    So much for Democrats coming together in New York’s 14th congressional district. A feud erupted Thursday on Twitter between Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and outgoing Democratic Rep. Joseph Crowley -- the longtime congressman Ocasio-Cortez shockingly defeated in New York’s primaries last month. The victor claimed the incumbent is now mounting a third-party bid. “.@repjoecrowley stated on live TV that he would absolutely support my candidacy,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday. “Instead, he’s stood me up for all 3 scheduled concession calls.” The 28-year-old progressive Democrat added: “Now, he’s mounting a 3rd party challenge against me and the Democratic Party- and against the...

    Former President Obama lost more than 2 million followers on Twitter this week as the social platform removed inactive and locked accounts from follower counts, according to a preliminary review by The Hill. Obama, who had 104 million Twitter followers prior to the crackdown, had roughly 101 million as of Thursday afternoon. Still, the former president remains the third most-followed person on the platform behind Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. President Trump, who had 53.4 million Twitter followers before the platform began pulling accounts from follower lists this week, had 53.1 million followers as of Thursday afternoon. Trump remains the...

Wow, but is anybody really surprised! Together with her lover, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, she worked on the Rigged Witch Hunt, perhaps the most tainted and corrupt case EVER!______ Donald J. Trump Jr. tweeted later: Based on what was going on there I’m reasonably sure that’s not a typo.
  • Did Shannon Watts Just Admit Gun Control Is Unconstitutional?

    Shannon Watts gets a little unhinged when it comes to guns. We all know that. She sees an individual’s right to keep and bear arms as something that should pretty much be abolished, and anyone who disagrees with her is a target of her scorn…when they’re not being blocked on Twitter, at least. With the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, she has yet another excuse to spew her bile all over social media. In the process, she may have made a bit of a slip-up.

    Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) on Monday said a restaurant gave him free food because the owner "appreciated" what he was doing in his fight against President Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy. "My experience at restaurants: I ordered take out at a Greek restaurant," Lieu tweeted. "When I arrived, the owner saw me & threw in a free baklava (one of my favorite desserts). He said he appreciated what I was doing. I guess that's what happens when one opposes ripping kids away from parents." Lieu's tweet comes as he and many other lawmakers are pressuring the Trump administration to reunite...
