    the alt right does not really exist, nothing is reallly set in stone it is just a buzzword that means anything from "i want to cut down on immigration" to "I want to kill anyone that isnt white and aryan"

    I wouldn't really say that the alt-right "doesn't really exist", I would rather say that it is very, very (very) loosely defined. I do agree that it is used increasingly as a buzzword.

    This is true. They are, often, either authoritarian or authoritiarian-leaning. (anti-egalitarianism [favouring "minorities"], supression of speech along with other principles, seem to be quite common)

    This tweet is enough to get someone banned even though it does not break their terms of service
    I don't think that was why he was banned.
