Former CIA Agent Wants To Buy Twitter Just To Ban Donald Trump

Since posting the call to Twitter, Wilson has defended herself to critics saying she's just "trying to avoid nuclear war" and asserting that both "emboldening white supremacy and threatening nuclear war" should be violations of Twitter's terms of service.

As Uproxx notes, the former Central Intelligence Agency agent has made headlines before during the George W. Bush administration.

And Thel Seraphim of New York City went Wilson one better: "In the spirit of friendly competition, we want to take this one step further and raise 2 billion dollars to outbid Plame and ban even more accounts".

President Donald Trump's consistent use of Twitter is inspiring to some in the nation, but it's also a headache and, sometimes, a source of fear to others.

There's a real danger that Trump's tweets could actually start a nuclear war. This GoFundMe will fund the purchase of a controlling interest in Twitter.

As commander-in-chief Trump has absolute authority to make good on these threats. Let's delete his account before that happens. A takeout price for Twitter would require some kind of premium to buy out large stakeholders, including Twitter board member Peter Fenton and his VC firm Benchmark, and Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey. "With a single tweet, he can damage global relationships and alliances, spread fake news like a virus, embolden white supremacists to march in the streets, or send stock markets crashing or soaring", wrote Wilson.

Plame's plan is simple, if unlikely to succeed: raise a billion dollars to buy a controlling interest in Twitter, and use that to pressure the social network to ban Trump.

"My hope in setting up this page was to shine a spotlight on just how risky Donald Trump's use of Twitter really is".

Wilson is a vehement Trump detractor. "This isn't about suppressing free speech online". Wilson's testimony would help to convict Scooter Libby, then-Vice President Dick Cheney's Chief of Staff, of perjury, making false statements to federal investigators, and obstruction of justice. GoFundMes stay up for as long as the poster wishes, so if the campaign's rate of fundraising remains constant, Wilson's billion should come together around the year 7496.

"Donald Trump has done a lot of disgusting things on Twitter", Wilson said on her "Let's #BuyTwitter and #BanTrump" GoFundMe page.
