Conservative actor James Woods is still not back to Twitter after the platform banned him for a tweet that they ultimately deleted.
The tweet was a paraphrase of Emerson and read, “If you try and kill the King, you better not miss.”
Twitter immediately banned Woods and demanded he delete the tweet before they restore access to his account. He refused and they deleted it anyway.
“Twitter demanded that I rescind my tweet paraphrasing Emerson,” Woods said to The Daily Wire. “It now seems they have chosen to delete that tweet from my account without my permission. Until free speech is allowed on Twitter, I will not be permitted to participate in our democracy with my voice. As long as Jack Dorsey remains the coward he seems to be, my Twitter days are in the past.”
As the Daily Wire reports, Woods has received an overwhelming show of support, going all the way up to President Trump who tweeted: “How can it be possible that James Woods (and many others), a strong but responsible Conservative Voice, is banned from Twitter? Social Media & Fake News Media, together with their partner, the Democrat Party, have no idea the problems they are causing for themselves. VERY UNFAIR!”
