Suspend or Cancel Trump's Twitter Account

To the Chief Officers at Twitter: We the undersigned believe that presidential candidate and now president-elect Donald J. Trump has abused his Twitter account in such a way as warrants cancellation or suspension. We are grateful that you have already banned neo-Nazi Richard Spencer and others for violating Twitter rules, and ask that D.J. Trump not be allowed to violate those same rules with impunity. We also understand that tweeting is not a First Amendment right, as discussed in Salon, but is speech conducted on a privately-run online platform governed by community standards. As of Dec. 16 there are about 55,000 signatures on a similar petition organized by people protesting at Twitter HQ, and I urge any signing here to sign there as well. All of us recognize that Trump has in effect weaponized Twitter unfairly. Twitter policy states: All users must adhere to the policies set forth in the Twitter Rules. Failure to do so may result in the temporary locking and/or permanent suspension of account(s). D.J. Trump has demonstrably violated the following rules: Unlawful use: You may not use our service for any unlawful purposes or in furtherance of illegal activities. His vindictive Dec. 6 Tweet aimed at Boeing led directly to significant drop in stock price. His Dec. 12 Tweet aimed at Lockheed Martin, precipitating a 4% drop in stock value, shows again how his tweets intentionally or not influence stock prices. Abusive Behavior: Violent threats (direct or indirect): You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism. The cyberbullying of steelworker union chief Chuck Jones, directly leading to death threats, was reported Dec. 8 in the NY Times. Harassment: You may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Trump's attack on a female college student is another recent example wherein the power of Twitter combined with Trump's status has directly resulted in personal destruction. 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. Trump's Nov. 30 Tweet threatening refugees is notable here. These are just a few examples of violations that form a clear pattern, clear enough so that his Twitter abuse of nearly 300 people has been graphically summarized in the New York Times. And as you are doubtless aware, Vanity Fair has also argued for banning Trump from Twitter. Not included in the above is D. J. Trump's use of Twitter to avoid the press, whose duty it is to critically report to the public what the President-Elect or presidential candidate does or means to do. Ultimately it is up to the officers of Twitter whether Trump is allowed to continue abusing people, institutions and corporations with your powerful technology. We hope you make the right decision, and soon. Thank you for your attention.

Steve Bannon's racist, anti-semitic, misogynistic views don't belong in the White House

President-elect Donald Trump has just appointed his campaign CEO and chairman of Breitbart News, Stephen Bannon, as chief White House strategist and senior counselor. Trump’s team said the position will be equal to the Chief of Staff -- making Steve Bannon one of the most powerful and influential people in the world.   The appointment has drawn outrage from all sides of the political spectrum. Under Bannon’s leadership, Breitbart News has become the online destination for white nationalism, anti semitism, xenophobia, sexism, the spreading of lies and conspiracy theories, and hateful rhetoric. Steve Bannon himself has been accused of horrible behavior. He referred to feminists as “a bunch of dykes” and reportedly didn’t want his children to go to school with “a bunch of jews.” Former employee Ben Shapiro left Breitbart News because he said Bannon was a “vindictive, nasty figure.” Bannon’s abuse has even turned physical. In 1996, he was arrested for domestic violence. His ex-wife feared for their children, and reported Bannon threatened her and the kids if she appeared in court against him. She believed him and didn’t want to put her children in more danger. Bannon’s ex wife didn’t appear and the charges were dropped. President-elect Trump can do better. Our country has a deep well of talent to help him lead our country. There is no reason to select a figure like Steve Bannon. Bannon's vitriol and divisiveness have no place in the White House. Please sign if you agree that this is NOT the person who should have the ear of the president.
