Joe Biden memes are increasingly hard to post on Twitter

What could the reason be?

The presumed Democratic presidential candidate in the US 2020 election, Joe Biden, and the fun-loving folk of the internet just don’t seem to mesh. Another way of saying this is – they do actually mesh all too well – but at Biden’s great expense.

Yes, it’s the memes again. (See here for the previous batch of Biden memes that caused people to get their accounts locked.)

Twitter – that’s supposed to simply host legal and legitimate third-party content, and then let the chips fall where they may – is (once again) trying its hand at editorializing that said content. And if that happens to be with the goal of shielding one candidate in a presidential race, from the internet itself?

Well, that would be pretty bad.

Yet, as per @shoe0nhead, Twitter “removes and locks accounts” of users venturing to share what we will now call the “Biden’s Brain” meme.

A Biden campaign meme had become “viral” across major social media platforms, and that Twitter acted to say it was a violation of its election rules – after The Verge notified to Twitter about it.

It was an image of Biden “with a beam of light emanating from his chest” reading, “His brain? No. His heart.”

But there is one thing that’s evident about the Biden “haters” out on Twitter: they like to have fun and they don’t really care. There are no discernible outrage storms among this grassroots demographic.

Content/accounts get flagged/banned – often for no reason a human brain can understand – but then they just spring up in another place.

At least for as long as the meme remains funny and needs to be reposted.
