Of course, Twitter immediately denied that they're giving political asylum to fascists. But this explanation is in sync with the ways white nationalists are different from Islamists on social media. Not only do they rely heavily on irony to spread falsehoods while retaining enough plausible deniability to start crying 1st Amendment at the drop of a hat, but they're also (sadly) a lot more popular than Islamists (a bar so low you could plant an IED on top of it). And Twitter is loath to ban both the popular and the powerful from their website. So it seems that as long as one particular white supremacist retweeter is both the most popular and most powerful man on Twitter, we'll continue to be knee-deep in Nazis.
