Roseanne Barr's show was cancelled yesterday after she tweeted a racist joke against a former adviser to President Obama. She even threatened to quit Twitter after the incident. But Barr is more active of the site than ever, retweeting supposed hypocrisy by Disney, and even partially blaming the sleep drug Ambien for her racist tweet.

Yesterday, Twitter decided to verify Jason Kessler, an organiser of the August neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville that left one woman dead. Shortly after her death, Kessler even tweeted that the woman was a "fat disgusting Communist" and characterised her murder as "payback time." But Twitter refuses to explain why it verified Kessler - and users are so angry that Twitter is now suspending its verification procedures while the company figures out what to do.
