Twitter Halts All Verifications After Verifying Charlottesville Neo-Nazi Rally Organizer

Yesterday, Twitter decided to verify Jason Kessler, an organiser of the August neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville that left one woman dead. Shortly after her death, Kessler even tweeted that the woman was a “fat disgusting Communist” and characterised her murder as “payback time.” But Twitter refuses to explain why it verified Kessler—and users are so angry that Twitter is now suspending its verification procedures while the company figures out what to do.

“It’s important that Facebook is a place where people with different views can share their ideas,” wrote Mark Zuckerberg following the violent “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville. “But when someone tries to silence others or attacks them based on who they are or what they believe, that hurts us all and is unacceptable.” That tender sentiment, however, apparently didn’t stop the tech giant from using an anti-Muslim advert as a guinea pig for its new video formats during the final weeks of last year’s election.

Study Finds Banning Reddit’s Bigoted Jerkwads Worked

In recent years, Reddit has banned a bevy of far-right troll havens, including its board for the white supremacist “alt-right” and others used for the harassment of women, minorities and other people. The bans were a reversal of Reddit’s prior policy to not ban “questionable” content—and drew predictable outrage, given that its policy of non-intervention had fostered an explosion of very active fringe communities, many of them far to the right or openly racist.
