MILO and Roger Stone Announce Lawsuit Against Twitter

Award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author MILO is joining longtime Donald Trump advisor and Republican strategist Roger Stone in an anti-trust lawsuit against social media giant Twitter.

In July 2016 MILO made headlines when Twitter permanently suspended his account following a negative review he wrote of the newly released, all-female Ghostbusters movie.

Stone had his account permanently suspended in late 2017 after posting several tweets with expletives. Both contend they did not violate Twitter’s terms of service and were targeted instead for arbitrary reasons.

In a statement about MILO joining the lawsuit, Roger Stone said:

We continue to explore a broad lawsuit challenging Twitter’s censorship and the hypocrisy of their rules for online conduct which seem to be disproportionately levied against conservative voices in an obvious attempt to silence us. Verified tweeters call for my murder online every day, but Twitter doesn’t ban them.

We believe it is time to expose their manipulation of algorithms, ‘shadowbanning’ and other online techniques used to limit our reach. It’s time for Twitter to be regulated like a public utility or perish. I am heartened that my friend Milo is prepared to join our legal action along with other conservatives who have been gagged by the Twitter censors.

In a January 11 statement about the anti-trust case, MILO said:

I am Patient Zero of the Twitter war against conservatives and libertarians. The company declared war on free speech when it banned me in July 2016. At the time, I appreciated the free press. But I have come to realize that Twitter’s recklessness and bias toward conservatives and free thinkers represents a threat to free speech and democracy, such is Twitter’s monopolistic grip on journalistic discourse.

Footage released this week by investigative journalists at Project Veritas reveal a defiantly biased company whose hateful and divisive political attitudes are robbing libertarians and conservative journalists and media personalities of the right to freely express their opinions in the press.

The biggest tech debate of the next decade is whether technology companies, in particular social networks, should be regulated as public utilities. It is becoming increasingly clear, given their rampant abuses, that they should. And Twitter is the worst offender of them all.

MILO will be discussing details of the case in a live episode of his new show, THE MILO SHOW, located at dangerous.com, at 2.30pm ET on Thursday.

    Twitter’s automation of fascism is truly breathtaking. Quite the software engineering marvel; horrific and insidious too. They thought of things George Orwell never dreamed of. Just think of how ingenious shadowbanning is: everything appears normal to the shadowbanned user, but they are quarantined from everyone else. Nobody sees the shadowbanned user’s tweets. The shadowbanned user cannot be found in searches. Yet they remain unaware. So they are made to think their ideas have fallen out of favor. I am sure Twitter employs other fascist techniques that we aren’t even aware of yet.

    Oh this is going to be good…

    There are so many obvious examples of “twitter protected” celebs doing exactly the same stuff that Milo did – it will be hilarious to hear what will happen with this.

    that said, Milo and Stone will need to cross the hurdle of Twitter being a private company and the US First Amendment only really applying to the US govt. censoring people. What exactly will Milo and Stone try to nail Twitter on? For Breach of contract, in their selective enforcement of their rules? I want milo to win this, but I’m just not seeing what law or whatnot that he can win on…

    …and I was under the impression that Milo was libertarian enough to not want the government to interfere with private companies – though I can very much see the case for why it’d be nice to have some kind of law saying that social media companies aren’t allowed to discriminate in their rule enforcement.

      Hey, if bakeries aren’t allowed to refuse to bake cakes to faggots, Twitter sure as hell shouldn’t be allowed to censor based on political ideologies.

      This whole thing will be surpressed by the press. Not many will hear about it.

    MILO says … I am Patient Zero of the Twitter war against conservatives and libertarians. The company declared war on free speech when it banned me … (a bit prima donna-ish: they banned people before you)

    Get Real — Bernie Sanders is denied access to FOX News because he’s left and doesn’t walk the line of the Right Wing. The Right routinely bans Leftists from their media, which is their right. Twitter is a private company, not a Public Access channel.

    Stop being such a cry-baby. So Twitter didn’t invite you to their birthday party. You’re not seven, get over it.

      Bernie Sanders is not denied on Fox News. Fox has lefties all the time. You are such a moron.

    Twitter, Facebook, Google, etc. ARE the equivalent of “Press” / MSM news /opinions /alternative viewpoints of today, therefore they have no right to repress / delete / shadow ban, etc. anyone.

    And this is especially pertinent in light of the fact they let some people and groups actually threaten violence, death and other criminal acts like organized group harassment for perfectly legal actions like “free speech” and opinions they don’t agree with.

    The left is extremely hateful and intolerant, despite their constant “virtue signalling”. They rarely help actual people. They only help wealthy elites, huge corporations, and other supremacist groups who dream of being dictators who can force everyone to follow their rules & force everyone to give up their money and their rights.

    You nailed it with this sentence “robbing libertarians and conservative journalists and media personalities of the right to freely express their opinions in the press”. These huge social media companies are now “alternative press” who invite the general public to use their products (so they can steal your personal info & online stats to sell to advertisers and others). Therefore they have no right to shut out anyone.

    Many millions of regular people will be supporting your lawsuit and the good fight for free speech and equal rights for all viewpoints and opinions. These rights are necessary for freedom, democracy, respect for every person & equal rights for each and every person.

    Good luck. We will be with you all the way. Thank you from all of us who are not able to take on this fight ourselves. I encourage those who can, to help in every possible way. This is probably the most important issue of today AND it will shape the future – freedom or slavery.

    Because a lack of freedom = slavery. Your choices OR no choice. Your dreams OR no dreams. Because once our free speech is taken, other rights will be taken as well. France, Germany & the EU are already taking away free speech, equal human rights for all & hard won labour rights.

    Is that what the left really wants? They dream of a rainbow & unicorn world, but that world will be turned into a hellhole by the money hungry & power hungry supremacists – who PRETEND to be progressive and peace loving (ie: a classic honey trap to lure in useful unsuspecting activists – this is also a classic communist tactic).

    So Milo, Roger & friends -give these censoring – hateful – intolerant – giant tech / social media corporations hellfire & fury. Break up their power with anti-trust laws, and equality laws, and anything else you can hit them with. Charge their CEOs, execs & administration with every crime they’ve committed & every human right they’ve violated in their lustful never-ending quest for more money and power.

    And let’s keep exposing the left wing MSM for the paid prostitutes/slaves they’ve become – ruled and commanded by their hidden masters.

    Stay fabulous and free!!!
