A long-time ally of President Donald J. Trump was banned from using his Twitter account Saturday and his 298,000 followers were removed from his access without warning.
“While I am uncertain why, sometimes the stark truth offends some people,” said Roger J. Stone Jr., a former aide to President Richard M. Nixon, who unleashed a Tweetstorm on his critics and particularly CNN on-air presenters, especially Don Lemon, whom he called a “covksucker” very close to a pejorative term for a gay man–Lemon is gay.
Stone also Tweeted that Lemon was: “dumber than dog shit” and “a dull-witted arrogant partyboi.”
Initially, Stone’s friends reported that his suspension was only a three-hour timeout.
In time, it became clear after three hours passed, that the suspension was permanent.
Stone said he remains defiant.
“I am going to sue Twitter on multiple grounds,” he said.
Stone told New York magazine: “I am advised I have a very strong legal case. Twitter wants to avoid being regulated like a utility. No one has been willing to file the anti-trust case. I am.”
Many Tweeters drew attention to leftwing Twitter accounts, such as the one run by Keith Olbermann.

Others on Twitter celebrated Stone’s banishment.
New Twitter guidelines were released just last week and one rule, in particular, seems to apply to Stone:
Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.
“Tweets that glorify violence will be subject to company action. Currently, Twitter takes enforcement action against direct violent threats, vague violent threats and wishes/hopes of serious physical harm, death, or disease serious,” Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said.
We have a Trust & Safety Council which reviews and gives feedback on our policy and product changes. We emailed them our proposed changes in order to get critical feedback. Email found in this article: https://t.co/i4dMsGv5rm

According to an internal memo: Twitter executives said a more aggressive policy and enforcement approach will result in the removal of more content from our service and they are comfortable making this decision, assuming that we will only be removing abusive content that violates their rules.

Donald Trump’s Approval Rating Hits All Time High in Fox News Poll
Americans are uniting around the President during the epidemic.
President Donald Trump’s approval rating has hit an all time high in a Fox News poll released Thursday, suggesting the President has united new demographics of Americans behind his leadership during the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.
The poll shows Trump’s approval rating at 49%. 48% approved two weeks ago, and 47% of Americans approved of his job performance in late February.
The President’s approval ratings pertaining directly to the coronavirus epidemic are even better, with 51% of Americans stating he’s done a good job responding to the historically unprecedented event. The poll was conducted through phone calls to 1,107 registered voters nationwide
When asked about the federal response to the virus, only 4% of Americans stated that the government is “overreacting.” This suggests that the public is aware of the need for the disruptions to everyday life, even though the closure of businesses and social distancing has caused significant harm to the economy.
National polling has consistently demonstrated rising approval ratings for the President throughout the coronavirus epidemic. Earlier Pew polling revealed that 95% of Americans support the President’s life-saving early travel bans on China and Europe, a pandemic policy stance that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden only got behind earlier this week.
21% of poll respondents state that they personally know someone who has the coronavirus, a statistic that speaks to the community spread of the novel disease in the United States. 94% of Americans describe themselves as concerned over the spread of the virus in the country. 57% of the public describes the United States as moving in the right direction in controlling the virus, whereas 30% disagree.
Certainly there’s a discussion to be had about balancing the need to protect public health and to advert harm to the economy. But the poll indicates that the public widely supports the measures taken to blunt the spread of the coronavirus.
