“Die of boils, @jack. Yup. There it is. The sum total of my crime against Twitter,” Simon tweeted on Friday to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, following his two-week suspension. "I've told you to drop dead, as I told libelers and liars to drop dead. You can say that constitutes a threat, but that would be empty and embarrassing. I hold no dominion over life & death." Simon added: "I’ve given you two patient weeks, @jack, to engage in any coherent, honorable and intellectually honest way with the substance of my appeal of a 01110011101-brained conceputalization of rhetoric that honors slander and falsehood but cannot somehow abide mere insult. Nothing."
