Trump’s Twitch channel suspended, and Reddit bans pro-Trump online group

President Donald Trump and his followers took a double hit in online media Monday: Video streaming site Twitch suspended the president’s official channel, and popular website Reddit banned a group devoted to Trump.

Twitch, a video game-centric streaming site, suspended the official Donald Trump channel – launched in October 2019 – for violating its rules against hate speech. Among the violations were the rebroadcast of a presidential campaign rally in 2015, when Trump described immigrants crossing the border from Mexico.

“They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us,” Trump said. “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

That video was removed, as well as the broadcast of Trump’s rally this month in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he described concerns about “a very tough hombre” breaking into homes.

LONDON — Matthew Moulding may be the mastermind behind The Hut Group, a billion-plus pounds tech company in the beauty and wellness space, but he’s not one for a Silicon Valley cliche.

The 48-year-old Moulding, a self-made entrepreneur whose net worth is approaching 1 billion pounds, according to The Sunday Times of London Rich List, not once during an hourlong interview drops the words, “lean in,” “disrupt,” “learnings” or “synergistic.” He doesn’t preach about the importance of “community,” nor does he appear to have the messiah complex that’s so common among the tech businesses founders.

Serious, soft-spoken and—by his own description—risk-averse, the muscly Moulding (he’s a major fitness fan) is not made in the mold of the showy, party animal British entrepreneur (see Richard Branson, Philip Green and Richard Caring) or the stereotypical tech founder, although tech has always sat at the heart

The Libyan man accused of launching a terror attack that left three victims dead in Reading may have considered travelling abroad to wage jihad, according to security sources.

Khairi Saadallah, a 25-year-old asylum seeker, came to the attention of the security and intelligence agencies in 2019 when they received information he was seeking to join an Islamist group in the Middle East.

Mr Saadallah was put under surveillance, but the investigation was closed when the journey did not take place.

He was subsequently jailed after being convicted of a minor crime, and authorities would not confirm whether he was still under probation supervision at the time of the attack.

Security agencies are investigating whether Mr Saadallah had been indoctrinated by Islamist extremism, and the fellow inmates he met while
