"If Twitter starts banning people who are affiliated with organizations that use or promote violence against civilians to further a cause, that's tantamount to prohibiting certain opinions: a very new policy for a platform that used to be known as the 'free speech wing of the free speech party, '" Benesch said.
The changesannounced last month broaden Twitter's "hateful conduct policy" to permanently suspend any account-covering usernames, profile bios and display names-that displays "violent threats, multiple slurs, epithets, racist or sexist tropes, incites fear or reduces someone to less than human".
The individual accounts of two of its leaders, Jayda Fransen and Paul Golding, were also suspended. Britain First has made anti-Islam speeches and expressed ultranationalist viewpoints.
Remember when Trump retweeted alt-right Islamophobic videos and was condemned by world leaders and the public alike? One video purports to be a "Muslim migrant" attacking a Dutch boy on crutches. The second video showed a man smashing a statue of the Virgin Mary with the man saying "No-one but Allah will be worshipped in the land of the Levant". Fransen wrote "Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!"
British Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman said it had been "wrong for the president to have done this". "His goal is to promote strong border security and strong national security", said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in response to the controversy surrounding Trump's decision to retweet the videos.
The account for Jared Taylor, who heads the New Century Foundation, was among those suspended, along with his organization's flagship online publication, American Renaissance. Twitter eventually reinstated McGowan's account and said that it had been suspended because of a tweet that violated its rules on privacy. Both their accounts and past tweets are unavailable, along with their party's official Twitter account-all of which featured posts demonizing immigrants and Muslims.
