One of America’s most notorious racists and former grand wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan has been permanently banned from Twitter. The company on Friday said David Duke was removed for “repeated violations of the Twitter Rules on hateful conduct,” which prohibits users from promoting violence against, threatening or harassing people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation and other characteristics.
