I think Jack Dorsey changes his “Twitter rules” day by day.
Just a day after President Trump was banned from Twitter, thousands of people tweeted “Hang Mike Pence” and it even started a trend.
Take a look:
WTF why is this allowed to trend?
I get that people have been tweeting it to quote some of the insurrectionists but it shouldn't be allowed to trend. pic.twitter.com/HTlSYnoB5y

The Trend comes after liberals found a video of a few people from the Capitol siege chanting “Hang Mike Pence”.
So, of course, the MSM quickly played the video, again and again, to try to demonize Trump supporters.

The New York Post shared these details:
Twitter allowed public calls to hang Vice President Mike Pence to trend on its platform Saturday morning just hours after the account for President Trump was permanently suspended for inciting violence.
“WTF why is this allowed to trend?” said journalist Yashar Ali. “I get that people have been tweeting it to quote some of the insurrectionists but it shouldn’t be allowed to trend.”
A screenshot shared by Ali showed more than 14,000 Twitter users had shared the sentiment at the time he flagged it.
The line originated during unrest on Wednesday in Washington, DC, with rioters chanting for Pence’s execution as they rampaged through the Capitol building.

Fox News got the full scoop:
Twitter saw a surprising item trending on Friday night when “Hang Mike Pence” hit around 14,000 tweets, according to reports.
The social media platform announced Friday night that it was permanently suspending President Donald Trump’s Twitter account.
The decision was made “due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” according to a statement on the company’s blog.
Many users were confused, then, to see such a violent item in the trending section.
At this point, Twitter is just a liberal playground although some Conservatives are still hanging on and haven’t received a ban yet.
The keyword is “yet”
