Re: 50% More Nazis Free!

Advertisers have NEVER wanted their ads showing up next to any kind of hate speech. It creates a PR headache that they just don't want to deal with. While it's true hate speech has been on Twitter since its inception, since Twitler took over there's been at least a 4X increase. It's a combination effect of regular users fleeing to other services, like Mastadon, and people who hang out on 4Chan deciding that they're going to go test the limits of what they can get away with on Twitter. As the cherry on top, Twitler has been restoring the accounts of people who were banned for hate speech or harassment of some sort, and you know it has to be pretty bad if Twitter would ban you for it.
