    What’s going on here, this person’s replying to themself on Twitter?

    I’m not really well up on how Twitter works these days. They’re… angry at themselves for asking the police to arrest someone? Or that the police haven’t arrested them even though there’s (I assume) clear evidence of the crime they committed? And that has something to do with free speech?

    All in all a very confusing screenshot xD I’m going to make a cup of tea and sit down…

      User “Caitlin Flanagan” is calling for the arrest of people at a pro-Palestine demonstration because she does not like what they are saying.

      User “JordanUhl” replied to her post with a screenshot of another post in which Caitlin proclaims to be a “free speech absolutist”.

      It showcases the hypocrisy many right wingers which used to call for literal neo-Nazis such as Milo Yiannopoulos to be allowed on campuses under the guise of “free speech”. Now that free speech is used for something they do not like they quickly want it banned.

      I don’t use twitter but I’m 99.9% sure it’s some unrelated person (jordan) linking two tweets of another person (Caitlin) in the same message to point out their hypocrisy.

      The person posting took a screenshot of a tweet from this “journalist” and posted it as a reply on another of their tweets begging for the storm troopers to take away the people whose politics she doesn’t like in order to point out her hypocrisy.
