Breakfast at Tommy's: I Lost My Blue Twitter “Verified” Tick!

Tommy RobinsonShillman Fellow

Last night, Twitter removed my blue tick! I'm actually pretty gutted. But you know, this isn't some move that's been made to ensure people abide by the terms of service. This comes after Twitter announced brand new "anti-hate" rules, which means me and a number of other political commentators have been unverified from Twitter.

The blue tick is just there to help people verify which account is real, so all Twitter is doing is opening up the chance for people to make fake Tommy Robinson accounts. And they can't blame it on me promoting "hate" - Britain has anti-hate speech laws, and I've not been arrested so far!

Tommy, when I read that headline I thought you lost your blue tick hound dog …which is right up there with your still getting busted up by dang reveneurs, your cousin divorcing you or the fifth string on your banjo breaking for giving us red necks a bad day.

Twitter wil be in the shitter soon enough.

Billy Howard, Twitter , Facebook etc. have Government licenses where the rules say that they are supposed politically neutral. We know that they are not following these rules, so suspend their license or sue them out of existence. I don’t understand why this doesn’t happen.
Facebook helped fix the French Election, and gets away with it.

You and other freedom of speech loving blokes should really make an effort to move towards a Twitter alternative. Unfortunately there are several out there competing to be that ONE. We need to see one chosen and actively populated with conservative commentators with massive followings (but also allow leftists to join). Millions of people would be happy to drop Twitter for a similar but less censored option.
Let us do our own censorship: let us follow who we want, and block who we want. We don’t need Big Brother (Twitter’s puppet masters) doing that for us.
