Just because Twitter is reluctant to take action against some of its more malicious users doesn’t mean it isn’t cracking down against others. Twitter has confirmed to BuzzFeed News that it banned the accounts of the far-right group Proud Boys for reportedly breaking its rules prohibiting “violent extremist groups.” The social network shut down the group’s main account, its satellite accounts and that of its founder Gavin McInnes. While the company didn’t specify what prompted the move, it came just after a violent August 4th protest in Portland, Oregon, and just ahead of the extreme right-wing Washington, DC rally on August 12th.
