Twitter suspends notorious racist Andie Pauly
The poster child for Twitter’s racist problem is one Andie Pauly of Cicero, Illinois.
Olivia Crellin’s backgrounder on Pauly, first published a year ago, documented many of her atrocities – and brought international attention to Twitter’s failure to quell abuses.
Hanging. How truly Klannish… ahem, clannish of her!
But I digress…
Pauly was suspended from Twitter in May 2016, but was reinstated several weeks later.
Over the weekend, Pauly’s account was suspended again. Pauly has moved her social media presence to Gab.ai, a site that welcomes and nurtures all sorts of hard-right bile, and has claimed that she was banned for posting a misogynist (and, Frankly [as in Sinatra], lame) meme with an old photo of Dean Martin.
A source connected to Twitter management tells NBB that she was in fact suspended for harassment of multiple users, promoting the same along with mass reporting of accounts, and “d0xing” – gathering and posting personal information on users who called out her online hate speech.
Hello, Andie. There’s this thing called Google.
You should try it sometime.
It’s cheaper than Starbuck’s (worst mass-made burnt-tasting coffee ever, by the way) gift cards.
A big hat tip to Andie’s sister and niece for the candid photos.
