A Twitter user who threatened mass murder against Republicans at a #MAGA Meetup in Washington D.C. has not been reprimanded by Twitter.
“I am coming with a gun and i expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies,” Twitter user @Dreamstarjustic said, responding to a question asked by a conservative journalist.
The user attached a photo of a Kimber pistol.
At the time of publication, the account is still active, though the Tweet has been deleted.
Remember, Twitter banned conservative radio host Alex Jones last week for “abusive behavior.”
“Today, we permanently suspended
@realalexjones and @infowars from Twitter and Periscope. We took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ past violations,” the company said.

Whatever Jones may or may not have done – Twitter did not bother to get into the specifics – he certainly did not threaten the mass murder of political opponents.
But a clear double standard exists at the Silicon Valley titan, and it is purely based on political ideology, despite how many times Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey lies to Congress.
The user in question is certainly a Democrat. He or she has retweeted socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on multiple occasions.
The account has also retweeted socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
Apparently, threatening to slaughter a room full of Trump supporters is not abusive behavior, per the Twitter constitution.
