50% More Nazis Free!

While this is probably the smartest thing Twitler has done since buying the company -- let that sink in, pun very much intentional -- it still doesn't do anything to address the underlying reason why so many advertisers are fleeing. They don't want their ads showing up next to hate speech. It's not a difficult concept to understand if you are not a racist, antisemite, or a child of Apartheid South Africa. (apparently)

I'm sure it also doesn't help when you call up the CEOs to yell at them for pulling advertising and then attempt to blackmail them by claiming you'll go "thermonuclear" on them and release a lot of potentially damaging information you are sitting on atop Twitter Castle.
