Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone Jr. suspended from Twitter

Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone Jr. suspended from Twitter
From TechCrunch - October 29, 2017

Following a late-night, profanity-laced, Twitter tirade directed at CNN anchors, Roger Stone Jr., a longtime confidant and associate of President Donald Trump has been suspended indefinitely from the social media platform.

Stone (who looks like a caricature of a villain from a Charles Dickens novel)was likely set off by reports from CNN that the first charges had been approvedin special counsel Robert Muellers investigation intopossible collusion between the Presidents campaign staff and Russian agents during last years presidential election.

In a Sunday email to Politico, Stone protested the ban and said that he was consulting with lawyers about taking legal action against Twitter.

This is a strange way to do business and part and parcel of the systematic effort by the tech left to censor and silence conservative voices, Stone wrote in an email quoted by POLITICO.

The language in Stones email is far more staid than the commentary Stone leveled at CNN anchor Don Lemon on Friday night. Stone reportedly took to the social media platform and called Lemon aPiece ofs**t, and human excrement, and wrote that the host must be confronted, humiliated, mocked and punished.
