Blocked on Twitter

I was temporarily banned from Twitter for ‘hate speech’ for quoting Mark Twain’s 1905 pamphlet ‘King Leopold’s Soliloquy’ that argued that King Leopold of the Belgians (1835 – 1909) should have faced justice and corporal punishment in The Hague for mass atrocities i.e. – torture – mutilation – infanticide – mass murder – slavery – perpetrated in the Belgian Congo.

Yet Twitter seem happy enough to broadcast tweets from Putin’s ministers, the far right, transphobes, anti-vaxxers, etc, etc. So if I fail to ‘like’ or ‘retweet’ any of your tweets – there’s a reason, and it’s not personal.
