This may be the biggest hit to an influencer in the history of social media. Depending on how you look at it, it was either a major victory against fake news and hate speech or a dangerous strike against freedom of speech. Either way, with these massive blows to his digital media empire, it's anyone's guess as to whether the conspiracy tycoon will be able to continue to rail against the deep state, peddle products like Brain Force Plus, or simply make chimpanzee noises.
