In other words, status quo, etc.

Nine months after quitting Twitter, James Woods has returned to the social media platform to resume giving the insult comic treatment to his political enemies, starting with (who else?) New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. So fans of Twitter flame wars, your ship has just come in.

Woods announced he would leave Twitter in May 2019 after his account was temporarily locked because he tweeted “If you try to kill the King, you better not miss.’ #HangThemAll.” Woods told conservative news site Daily Wire at the time that “Twitter demanded that I rescind my tweet paraphrasing Emerson. It now seems they have chosen to delete that tweet from my account without my permission.” He vowed at the time that “As long as [Twitter founder] Jack Dorsey remains the coward he seems to be, my Twitter days are in the past.”

However, on Thursday night he told his 2 million followers that while he “tried so hard this past year to live without the wealth of knowledge available on Twitter,” he came back because “this kind of blazing insight can be found nowhere else,” adding “#AOCStillAMoron” along with an out of context video of the congresswoman.

He followed that up with some interactions with followers, notably Juanita Broaddrick, who has accused Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978, when he was Arkansas Attorney General. (Clinton has consistently denied the accusation; Broaddrick recanted the accusation in the 1990s, but recanted the recantation soon after and has since continued to accuse him.)

“[H]opefully you will eventually be victorious in your quest to bring the #RapistClinton to justice. We will stand by you until he is behind bars (hopefully monitored by the same guards who watched over Jeffrey Epstein),” Woods tweeted to Broaddrick.

Woods also sparred with some accounts, thanked his fans and followers, and became the latest conservative figure to condemn Utah Sen. Mitt Romney for being the lone Republican to vote to convict Donald Trump in his impeachment trial.

This wasn’t the first time Woods has quit Twitter and then returned. He quit in 2016 over “censorship,” but returned soon after, and repeated the process again in 2018 over a period of two weeks.
