Yeah, these bans will accelerate until the "right" people are banned. Then it will stop.

Welcome to our new overlords: Silicon Valley.

Remember when Trump actually ordered the assassination of an Iranian leader? Remember when Twitter banned Trump for that?

In other news, Andy Cohen is the new Supreme leader in Iran.

A key unstated point underlying American exceptionalism is that the United States would never consider playing by the same rules it states, expects, and enforces on other countries (as in the role of IAEA and nuclear weapons re: the US and Iraq in the 90s). This necessarily applies to American weapons manufacturers too, so it is not surprising it applies to American discourse makers.

I would prefer that Twitter and Facebook ban politicians completely. Make a farking website and I'll go to it if you interest me as a candidate.

lol, "overlords" you can get out from under by just... not going on twitter. Godaddy is $7/m. Pretty sure the sovereign nation of Iran can foot the web hosting fees to say whatever they want.

Except I enjoy the posts from my reps.

Facebook needs to be heavily regulated so nazis don't use the platform to organize their hate crimes.

Iran's supreme leader has a Twitter account.  Was it, IranSupremeLeader23478?
1ranSupr3m3ldr?
Or
The realIranSupremeLeader?

Meh, just obey the terms of service of the private company and you will be fine. You know, do not post the simulated murder of a person on their platform or incite a seditious riot with their platform. It is not that hard. a simple rule of thumb is just do not be a dick.

To be fair, the only person Diana Ross ever wanted killed was Phil Spector.

Probably.

If they did that then we'd just see even more whinging that only Republicans get banned from Facebook.

Too bad Facebook doesn't refuse to make gay cakes, so the conservatives would support their right to refuse to offer their services to whomever they don't like.

TFA said the account was actually shut down for ban evasion, so it sounds like dude was already banned from Twitter.

oh am i friends with Iran's supreme leader now? wtf?
 
2022-01-17 12:15:07 PM  
Of all the supremely awful shiat posted to social media on a daily basis, this is ban-worthy?
 
2022-01-17 12:15:52 PM  
Diana Ross had to cancel a tour once, because she tried to go on the road with random singers she was calling the Supremes, and people weren't having it, or buying tickets.
Just sayin.  ;)

They get around it by having people post for them. Trump is doing that now through more than one account.

Not sure why Iran is so angry at Trump-I mean, yes, he did the illegal assassination, but when it comes to ideology these guys are all on the same side.

Sounds like the dude who created the video was banned, and this dude was helping bypass that ban.

This.
I'm wondering when Twitter will enforce the rule about not being a proxy for somebody who got banned.
How long would anyone last of Fark for posting "JugbyRocks" photoshops?

If modern supreme leaders had a fraction of the class & talent Diana Ross had, no one would need to ban their dumb, clueless asses.

How pathetic is it that world leaders actually use a social media site designed for teenagers to announce shiat and threaten each other.
Just one more small disgusting, classless part of tfg's legacy.
 
2022-01-17 2:19:05 PM  
OMG I get it!!!! HAHAHAHA! The first sentence Supremes refers to the leader of Iran, whereas the second it is used in reference to a rock band! HAHAHA! I never would have expected one word to be used to refer to two different things. HA! so funny! HAHAHA!!!!

How can she be Supreme and sing songs of Black Love when her mouth is overrunning with the sperm of Trigger?

ShamanGator: If modern supreme leaders had a fraction of the class & talent Diana Ross had, no one would need to ban their dumb, clueless asses.


I loved some of her music but I don't know about the "class" part.
I remember when she announced a Supremes reunion tour in the 90's and booked shows and then told Mary and Cindy that they would only get paid a fraction of what the divine Miss Ross would get.
So she hired a couple unknown backup singers and had to cancel most of the concerts because of lack of ticket sales.

Calling anyone the supreme leader just makes me picture them topped with sour cream.

Yeah, RBG, too, unfortunately.

If that doesn't appear on TFG's signature block then it's only because no one in his inner circle is on Fark.

I'm fine with that. Twitter diplomacy never should've started, and I would cheer if every official government account (hell, every blue checkmark under the sun) were shut down tomorrow so we could all go back to being anonymous dogs on the Internet.

True enough, but even then, comparing her to our current batch of "Supreme World Leaders" she's still a royal flush beats a pair of 2's better.
