This week, Twitter announced that it banned a number of alt-right and white supremacist accounts due to their offensiveness and habit of spewing racist propaganda.


Conservative actor James Wood announced on Thursday night that he is deleting his account to protest the "censorship" of conservative voices on the social medium.

“Since Twitter is now in the #censorship business, I will no longer use its service for my constitutional right to free speech. #GoodbyeAll,” wrote Woods.

Deadspin noted that Woods is "apparently confused about the fact that free speech laws don’t apply to private companies that run services like Twitter."

Twitter users responded with a mixture of scorn and pity and, of course, big doses of snark.
