Milo Reinstated On Twitter After Gigantic Backlash

After global media reports, a front-page story on The Drudge Report and globally-trending hashtags, Twitter reinstated the account of Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos less than an hour after his account was initially suspended.

The suspension followed Milo’s announcement that he planned to give a press conference and short talk on Islam and Gays in Orlando, Florida, the site of a deadly Muslim terrorist attack on a gay dance club.

In the wake of his suspension, Twitter was subject to a massive backlash from conservaive media and Twitter users, which resulted in the #FreeNero and #FreeMilo hashtags trending globally.
