The former CEO of Twitter, Dick Costolo, a multimillionaire, says those who disagree with him politically shouldn't be around.
As in, they should be shot.
On social media, he said, "Me-first capitalists who think you can separate society from business are going to be the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution. I'll happily provide video commentary."
"This is a direct threat of murder posted on Twitter. So will they shut down his account?" wondered a commentary at the Gateway Pundit.
Added the pundits at Twitchy, "Dick Costolo, a man who made millions and millions of dollars thanks to capitalism, wants capitalists who want to get politics out of business to be lined up against a wall and shot during the revolution.
"On video. That this guy was the CEO of Twitter from 2010-2015 says so much, and ain't none of it good."
Commentator Mike Cernovich also weighed in.
This isn’t a nobody. This is a near billionaire. Former Twitter CEO.
He wants to MURDER people he doesn’t agree with poltically.
This is how 90% of Big Tech thinks.
They won’t stop at bans.

"This isn't a nobody. This is a near billionaire. Former Twitter CEO. He wants to MURDER people he doesn't agree with poltically. (sic). This is how 90% of Big Tech thinks. They won't stop at bans."
Twitchy said, "This editor has friends who have been suspended for questioning Google's search terms, but oddly enough Dick's tweet about killing people hasn't landed him in any sort of suspension or lock."
But there was reaction on line.
"When fascists like Dick show you who they really are, believe them," Twitchy said.
One anonymous commenter returned a question: "Um… Hey Mr. Wealthy Capitalist Former Corporate CEO? What make you think the revolutionaries would put you on camera duty instead of in the line against the wall?"
Another said, "Immoral and violent left-wing 1%ers might be the most dangerous, immoral, people you'll ever meet."
