As corporate social media platforms try to sterilize the global conversation, some funny-if-they-weren’t-so-scary statistics are emerging. Here, for instance, is a recent screenshot of conservative pundit Ann Coulter’s Twitter account. Note that her activity and notoriety are soaring (which you’d expect during a presidential election), while her followers diminish by 81,000. Does this make sense? Yes, if you assume her followers are out there expressing skepticism about vaccines, censorship, and electoral integrity — thereby violating Twitter community standards — and are being unsubscribed.
