The edge-cases absolutely do need to be considered.

If I were, for example, to Tweet "Up the IRA!", I would expect to have my Twitter account closed. Furthermore, I'd take it on the chin rather than going on about evil liberal conspiracies, political correctness, the New World Order and Great Cthulhu, and say "Yeah. Fair cop, I crossed a line there!"

Now most of your list of offences relate to gender issues but is not possible that the posts in question were abusive rather than "wrong"? Let's face it, a lot of closet cases do get very rude when dealing with LGBT types and such subjects are always going to be a gathering point for trolls. I can't imagine that it's simply a case of people getting kicked off accidentally transposing a pro-noun or two. It would be interesting to see some examples.

I again, repeat, my slightly tongue-in-cheek comment at the start of this thread. We can safely ignore the notion that all loony-right thought is somehow barred from Twitter because Trump posts his brain-farts on there every day!
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
