George Takei is facing quite a bit of criticism for deleting a Twitter poll asking followers to decide who does more harm to Americans – the media or President Donald Trump.
The results proved a lot closer than one would assume given George Takei’s largely liberal, anti-Trump following.
Soon enough, the poll *mysteriously* disappeared. George Takei appeared to attribute this to “alt-right hijacking” in a tweet that he deleted literally right as the writer of this post tried to embed it.
Takei later tweeted the following, apparently excusing his poll as a “troll trap.”
He subsequently deleted that post as well.
Needless to say, people have taken notice of George Takei’s game of disappearing tweets.

@GeorgeTakei Why did you delete the poll? Did it challenge your echo chamber ideals? Refusal to engage is gonna lose you another election.
