Openly censoring the President of the United States for controversial yet acceptable positions...that's nice.

Meanwhile there are still people on here that deny that conservatives are subject to systemic censorship on social media (Katie Hopkins got banned from Twitter just last week, btw, making her the latest of many victims to share that fate).

230 needs to die asap.

Controversial commentator Katie Hopkins has had her Twitter account suspended for violating its anti-hate policy.

The social media giant said the former Apprentice contestant had been temporarily locked out of her account.

Ms Hopkins has more than one million followers on the site and is known for her outspoken views.

US President Donald Trump has re-tweeted her on several occasions, allowing her to gain a larger global following.

Anti-racism campaigners have called for her to be removed from the platform, accusing her of using hate speech.

A spokesperson for Twitter said the firm was looking into the situation and was keeping Hopkins apprised at each step.

They said: "Keeping Twitter safe is a top priority for us - abuse and harassment have no place on the service."

They added: "These rules apply to everyone using our service - regardless of the account involved."

As of Thursday evening, the account was listed but all her tweets had been removed.

The page still showed one re-tweet from another user accusing her of "incitement to racial hatred" for a post she made about British rapper Stormzy. That post appeared to be from late last year.

Twitter requires users to take down posts that violate the network's policies. Users are barred from posting again until the offending post or posts have been taken down by the user.

The social network did not comment on why all of Ms Hopkins's tweets have been removed.

“ 230 needs to die asap.”

Is this where Fairness Doctrine Finally returns?

Isn't the internet currently abound with memes about the most violent crushing of a US autonomous zone in history, because people hate statues?

There is much worse than that on twitter all the time.

Trump's tweet is not even close to being worth censoring.
