Milo Yiannopoulos is a journalist, provocateur, and noted online troll. The outlandish, British tech editor for Breitbart is best known for his incendiary tweets that forced the service to remove his verification and also allegedly also sending followers at specific targets where they attempt to do their worst in 140 characters or less.

His ejection from Twitter reportedly stems from a recent run-in with Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones.
