Actor James Woods Boycotts Twitter Over its Censorship of Conservatives

Written by eaglerising

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

Veteran actor James Woods stated Thursday that he will no longer be using Twitter because the social media platform has been suspending the accounts of certain alt right accounts and engaging in censorship overall.

Woods is referencing the report that claims that Twitter has discontinued the accounts of several high-profile conservatives, which some refer to as the “alt-right.”

Facebook has been mulling over similar measures, like creating a task force to crack down on what some subjectively consider “fake news.”

Woods has been one of the few people in Hollywood to voice support for President-elect Donald Trump.

The veteran thespian went on a Twitter rant condemning former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for being a “corrupt liar” among many other negative things.

There are several other instances of Woods using the social media platform to express his extreme discontent with the prospect of Clinton as president of the U.S.

Now Woods’ candid voice will go unheard as he boycotts the social media company (which seems to be faltering as of late).
