Twitter Just Fine With Assassination Threats Against Justice Clarence Thomas
While Twitter routinely bans conservatives, those who challenge the government-sanctioned Covid-19 narrative, or the results of the 2020 US election, threatening to assassinate a Supreme Court justice is just fine.
“I’m going to assassinate supreme court justice Clarence Thomas,” tweeted user @redfrnn after Friday’s Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.
Upon reporting the tweet, Twitter said it didn’t break the rules.
In case anyone was wondering, threatening to assassinate a Supreme Court Justice doesn’t violate @Twitter rules. But people get suspended for stating scientific facts. pic.twitter.com/DYvWTts8jn

The same user posted a picture of a Mac-9 MINI gun, tweeting “For those wondering .. No it’s not a computer by apple.”

Twitter finally took the tweet down, and it appears that the user deactivated their own account, as opposed to a Twitter suspension.
Meanwhile, an account posting Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home address is still active.
Took you guys long enough.
But of course, the account (@therealkingwack) is still active. @TwitterSafety is a joke. pic.twitter.com/PHlqB9ysjk
