Now I understand how Twitter works: Ban James Woods for paraphrasing a quote from The Wire and Emerson but crosshairs on Julian Assange is fine.

Bounding Into Comics: James Woods responds to Twitter ban.
Actor James Woods has responded to his ban on Twitter.

The conservative actor was banned from the platform after quoting the television show The Wire. Woods wrote, “”If you try to kill the King, you better not miss.” #HangThemAll” The quote from The Wire paraphrases Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Woods’ girlfriend Sara Miller revealed Twitter claims the tweet violated their “rules against abusive behavior.”

    Of course Twitter doesn’t inform his followers. @RealJamesWoods has received the following email:

Woods spoke to The Daily Wire where he indicated he will not be returning to Twitter, “Twitter demanded that I rescind my tweet paraphrasing Emerson.” He added, “It now seems they have chosen to delete that tweet from my account without my permission. Until free speech is allowed on Twitter, I will not be permitted to participate in our democracy with my voice. As long as Jack Dorsey remains the coward he seems to be, my Twitter days are in the past.”
And then there's the below, Julian Assange in unmistakable crosshairs. Not linking directly to the account, you can find it on your own if you really want:

WATB Twitter CEO and Soy Boy Jack Dorsey, below. I think his issues stem from his inability to grow a real beard and, maybe, the nose ring:
