Robin Williams who committed suicide in 2014 after losing his battle with depression has been banned on Twitter. Now when you visit the OFFICIAL memorial page for Robin Williams twitter.com/RobinWilliams you are met with an account suspension message.
It is unclear exactly why Twitter has decided to suspend Robin Williams old twitter account and memorial page but this latest suspension comes amid a hurricane of recent high profile suspensions on various big social media website by the tech elite. Such is the scale of the recent purge of accounts and censorship it has even prompted a response from president Donald Trump who has tweeted
…..Censorship is a very dangerous thing & absolutely impossible to police. If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed. I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don’t watch at all..

What is quite clear is that is that the tech giants are doing absolutely everything in their power to censor and control what people can and cannot see online no matter what your politics are.
