'Twitter interfering in elections on Dems' side' - Republican candidate banned over Stalin gif

'Twitter interfering in elections on Dems' side' - Republican candidate banned over Stalin gif | 01 Aug 2018 | Austin Petersen, a Republican candidate in the Missouri Senate primaries who was banned from Twitter after posting one of the social network's own images in an online debate, told RT that Twitter is a "threat to democracy." "Twitter is directly interfering with the election in the state of Missouri at the behest of a Democratic Super PAC that is working for my opponent Claire McCaskill," Petersen said ahead of the primary vote, scheduled for August 7. The former Libertarian presidential candidate was suspended from posting on Twitter, his main means of communicating with supporters, for 12 hours on Monday, after he responded to accusations of collusion with Russia with a GIF of Joseph Stalin saying "Off to Gulag now." The ironically-deployed GIF is frequently used in online debates, and is part of Twitter's own stock image database.
