Just last week Twitter got caught shadow-banning prominent Republicans including party chair Ronna McDaniel, according to an article published by Vice News. Rather than showing contrition, Twitter has decided to double down, publicly displaying their hatred of Republicans and conservatives. In other words, they are telling them to Drop Dead!
Twitter has chosen a group mostly comprised of Trump-haters to study “how communities form around political discussions on Twitter, and the challenges that may arise as those discussions develop.” The team is “led by Dr. Rebekah Tromble, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Leiden University, along with Dr. Michael Meffert at Leiden, Dr. Patricia Rossini and Dr. Jennifer Stromer-Galley at Syracuse University, Dr. Nava Tintarev at Delft University of Technology, and Dr. Dirk Hovy at Bocconi University, this project will develop two sets of metrics: how communities form around political discussions on Twitter, and the challenges that may arise as those discussions develop.”
As reported by Fox News, at least four of the six members of the new Twitter team has a history of being anti-Trump.
For example, Team leader Dr. Rebekah Tromble:
Apparently no amount of boot licking guarantees Trump's loyalty. #ScaramucciOut

Trump quintupled down on his commitment to white nationalists. They're just about all he's got left. Bannon ain't goin nowhere. https://t.co/qkg7mKx7vw

Her colleague at Syracuse U, and fellow team member Professor Jenny Stromer-Galley:
Trump's proposed budget includes cutting Corporation for Public Broadcasting — the best source for news out there. Of course. #smallhands

Trump looks cruelty in the face and demands more of it. Time's cover captures that well. https://t.co/E3VJWudELd. The executive order is not a solution. Constant vigilance is still needed.

Another researcher involved in the project, Dr. Nava Tintarev of Delft University of Technology in Holland, has blocked her tweets but Fox was able to get to them:
“Trump” and “care” don’t really work in the same sentence do they? Keeping you in my thought today ‘merica. Maybe Senate will block it.

Let us please be wrong. May we yet find a way to fix this. https://t.co/M3ei8qFY0O

There is your proof folks, not only does Twitter hate conservatives, but with this team, Twitter is saying it loud, proud, and publicly so we all know it, DROP DEAD Conservatives.
