'Dilbert' creator Scott Adams says he was targeted by Clinton supporters for Trump endorsement

Scott Adams, who pens the popular comic strip Dilbert, and who has been an outspoken Donald Trump booster this election, says he’s been targeted by an army of trolls for his conservative leanings, on social media and across the web.

In an essay for his blog, Adams says he was “shadowbanned” by Twitter as part of an organized effort to silence him online — an effort that started when Adams asked Trump supporters to Tweet him accounts of being bullied by Democrats.


According to his account, the social media company — which has had issues with its Trust and Safety Council shutting down “unpopular viewpoints” before — didn’t remove him from their social media platform in an official way, but prevented his followers from seeing his Tweets and replies.




Adams also claims that Clinton supporters — or, at least, Clinton-supporting Twitter bots — have been filling his mentions with nasty, often similar, replies.
