A blackboard in a boardroom at the Twitter headquarters in San Francisco has the words #SCREWNERO written on it, a reference to Milo Yiannopoulos’s former Twitter account.
The photo was taken by one of Microsoft’s software engineers, Matt Kerr, who was doing a tour of the company’s headquarters when he noticed the three hashtags written in capitals on a boardroom blackboard.
The hashtag, which was also accompanied by the words #BANTROLLS and #LOVENOTHATE, is likely a reference to Milo’s much publicised feud with Twitter, after the company permanently banned him from the platform.

Milo has since issued a data request on his suspended account from the company, a demand that Twitter have so far refused to comply with.
The findings add weight to the theory that his suspension was a politically motivated act, with Twitter openly discriminating against conservative minded users, yet failing to address the biggest existing issue on the platform, that being the use of the platform by terrorist groups, sometimes as a means of recruitment.
