Stories of the Week

Story 1

Twitter Apologizes After Intern Accidentally Sets Coffee On ‘Destroy All Conservatives’ Button

Summary: A large number of conservative and satirical Twitter accounts that criticize the left were shut down yesterday in what CEO Jack Dorsey says was, "a totally honest mistake." Dorsey claims an intern set their coffee on a button labeled, 'Destroy All Conservatives,' which is located in the commons area near the coffee machine and easy to miss if you're not paying attention. 

  • A growing trend of non-woke satirists getting suspended like Titania McGrath and others.

  • The Babylon Bee twitter account was down for 90 minutes. Kyle and Dan had to verify their accounts to log back in.

  • Twitter says they are sorry:

  • Meanwhile, "Drag Queen Story Hour" posts tweet deemed pedophilic, locks account after pushback

  • This only seems to be happening in one direction against non-leftists or the non-woke

Story 2
