When you're a star, they let you do it...
One Twitter account is reposting everything Trump tweets. It was suspended within 3 days.

'Pharma bro' Shkreli suspended from Twitter for harassment

Perhaps Twitter should consider suspending someone else's account, as well...

Do I loathe hate speech? With all my being. Am I ready to compromise my freedom of speech to jail those who say things I loathe? No.

The charge is making threats, which should only stick if the threats were credible ("I'm going to de-orbit the moon and land it on your bicycle!" wouldn't count, for instance).

From looking at the tweets in the article I doubt they've got a case—he sounds like any number of trolls on Twitter or (((shudder))) YouTube comments. They might be grounds for involuntary commitment to psychiatric care, especially if they can get corroborating testimony from real-live encounters.

If it had been an ordinary citizen making the complaints I doubt law enforcement would have sprung into action. The Brady Campaign has a bit more pull than most people.

 
Depends on how high the 'credible' bar is.  I'd say that owning a gun and making threats about shooting people meets the definition of credible. With great power comes great responsibility.

Coca-Cola pulls Twitter campaign after it was tricked into quoting Mein Kampf {#Mrgreen}

In a press release, Coca-Cola said its aim was to “tackle the pervasive negativity polluting social media feeds and comment threads across the internet”.

But Gawker, noticing that one response had the “14 words” white nationalist slogan re-published in the shape of a dog, had other ideas.

The media company’s editorial labs director, Adam Pash, created a Twitter bot, @MeinCoke, and set it up to tweet lines from Mein Kampf and then link to them with the #MakeItHappy tag – triggering Coca-Cola’s own Twitter bot to turn them into cutesy pictures.

The result was that for a couple of hours on Tuesday morning, Coca-Cola’s Twitter feed was broadcasting big chunks of Adolf Hitler’s text, albeit built in the form of a smiling banana or a cat playing a drum kit.

By all means, rely on algorithms/bots for your marketing. There will always be one...

Mayor of Newark, NJ tweets his way through Snowmageddon

Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, raced around his blighted and beleaguered city delivering diapers to stranded mothers, providing aid to women in labor and personally lifting cars out of the snow — all while subsisting on Diet Coke and Advil....
