In the wake of recent events and the current level of political distrust it is not surprising that we are seeing forcasts like this. Twitter patterns from the Arab spring now mimicking US tweets..




Speaking at a tech conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey warned that the US may be on the brink of their own Arab Spring style uprising.

Dorsey explained that the level of political discourse, and grievances, currently taking place on Twitter in the US is similar to how it was used in the Middle East prior to the Arab Spring and the Green Revolution in Iran.

It can't come soon enough. Lets just hope it more of the peaceful variety.

That's what I have said for quite a while. People of all creeds, shapes, sizes, colors, et cetera, are sick of the bull#. An uprising has been approaching for at least the last 10 years...

Let the snowflakes uprise, they won't make it out of their cities when the 3 day supply of food and gasoline runs out. Pull up a chair, get some popcorn and watch them ravage themselves. Which side do you think the hard working truckers would be on? Would 90% of America care? When federal funds get cut off from California and the whole state goes dark from not paying their energy bill, maybe they can pledge allegiance to Lil Kim to borrow a lightbulb or two. This is some funny speculation. Welfare and foodstamps stop flowing....ya they are headed to the good life with a twitter fake news arab spring lol.

Who cares what the CEO of twitter thinks?

He can't even keep his own stock price afloat.

I swear to god if Liberals ( and i'm a social liberal) try to stage some kind of uprising and compare it to Egypt, my god, we really have lost all of our collective minds.

I honestly cannot say I'm surprised. I've been thinking we will certainly have our own for a year or so now.

I take it that you are willing to kill American citizens, for what exactly?

If Twitter continues with the disgusting policy of censoring pro Trump supporters and give carte blanche to all his haters by openly keeping anti trump comments at the top of every of his post, that will happen and maybe sooner than we think. As soon as President Trump posts something on Twitter, within seconds you'd see almost the same names bashing and attacking him on every topic. Try to make a positive comment and it disappears and doesn't show at the top. But the negative ones are always the first.

You forgot Rx drugs. A quarter of the nation would be dead within a month if they didn't have their insulins, immunosupressants, and blood pressure meds to keep them alive. Another quarter would go nuts from opiate and SSRI withdrawals.

A revolution would be civil suicide and the feds know it.

What bull#? The perpetual warfare. The constant government overspending. The corruption which exists within the government due to the essential corporate takeover. The move towards the militarization of our police force. The list list goes on. "What bull#?" Come on now. :/ :/
