Twitter suspends blogger

It’s been a month since Twitter.com unveiled its new and aggressive policy cracking down on abusive behavior.

“We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we’ve sucked at it for years,” wrote Twitter CEO Dick Costolo in a leaked internal memo obtained by Slate.com.

“We’re going to start kicking these people off right and left and making sure that when they issue their ridiculous attacks, nobody hears them,” Costolo wrote.

Donald Sterling In George Orwell’s classic novel 1984, citizens lived under constant threat of a totalitarian government that sought to control their thoughts — even in the privacy of their own homes.

In his strongly worded piece for ESPN.com, sports writer Jason Whitlock examines the events that led to the downfall of billionaire Donald Sterling, the LA Clippers’ octogenarian owner who became a victim of an invasion of privacy by a media conglomerate that threatens freedom of speech and the right to privacy.

Subject: Your Anti-gay messages

I hate to see a person that’s apart of the Gay community using their platform to discredit the hardworking Americans that’s currently fighting for equal rights in this country by labeling it the “gay agenda”. How big is the paycheck you receiving from Anti-gay groups? I hope their check makes you sleep at night. I lived long enough to know, that all the negative things you do in life will always come back on you, Karma will hit you so hard you won’t even see it coming.

I use to be fan of your blog, But I made the decision to not visit your website anymore. You seriously have an issue with the gay community, and you need to diagnose this problem within yourself just like you diagnose the “issues” of the celebrities you frequently write about. Are you prefect? or are you a narcissist too?

Peace Out Sandra…

SR responds: Good riddance, Stanley.

Good Afternoon/Evening/Morning Ms. Rose,

I enjoy your website immensely and enjoy reading it (and the comments from your readers, lol). As a Floridian, I appreciate the support and attention you have brought to the Trayvon Martin case. But, I really don’t want anyone to forget about Jordan Davis, the young man who was senselessly murdered at a Jacksonville gas station because his music was “threatening”. Along with Kendrick Johnson, who was found rolled up in a mat in his high school gym in Valdosta but, his death has been ruled as “accidental” (btw,you can Google his death picture but, be warned, it is gruesome).

Please encourage your readers especially those in Florida and Georgia to continue the fight for justice for Trayvon Martin, but please don’t forget Jordan Davis and Kendrick Johnson.

Thank you.

Lupe Fiasco kicked off stage

Sunday’s fiasco at a presidential Inauguration event must have seemed like shades of Desiree Rogers to the Obama administration.

If you recall, Obama’s attention-seeking Social Secretary Desiree Rogers resigned her post after an uninvited couple crashed a White House event and got close enough to the president to take a picture with him.

On Sunday, rapper Lupe Fiasco — who has sharply criticized Obama in the past — was kicked off the stage during an anti-Obama rant at the StartUp RockOn Inauguration Celebration at the Hamilton Live.

Foreign policy reporter Josh Rogin live-tweeted the bizarre scene as it unfolded before him.
