Leslie Jones thanks fans as she makes Twitter comeback

The "Ghostbusters" actress quit the social media site on Monday (07.18.16) after being bombarded with racist abuse, but has admitted she can't stay away and will now be posting again. I leave twitter tonight with tears and a very sad heart. "All those people still would have an account", she said in reference to Twitter's decision to ban several users that participated in the campaign launched by Milo Yiannopoulous. Wait! I didn't leave!

"It's like, OK, that's my favorite restaurant", Jones said in a comparison of Twitter. I love the food there. I was on them, like, "You, this is-okay, it's like".

Twitter Inc said on Wednesday that it had moved to permanently suspend a number of user accounts in response to the abuse and harassment endured by Jones.

You know, on of those type of things of, like, insults-What's scary about the whole thing is the insults didn't hurt me.

It was "so gross and mean and unnecessary", she added.

"If I hadn't said anything, nobody would have ever knew about this".

"You need to up your security", she joked. Jones left Twitter after being targeted by racist tweets. She tweeted out her last two tweets yesterday, "I feel like I'm in a personal hell".

Yiannopoulos issued a statement to NPR, saying, "Twitter has suspended me without evidence of wrongdoing and without explanation while allowing the most appalling abuses to continue on its platform".

"Ghostbusters" actress Leslie Jones is working on exterminating trolls online.

But Jones also thanked Twitter and CEO Jack Dorsey specifically for jumping on things and removing the worst offenders. We got, like, a whole bunch of accounts taken off of Twitter. Jones had fought back vocally on Twitter, and had publicized some of the nauseating messages that'd been sent her way in an attempt to show the overwhelming nature of the virtual attacks.

Twitter isn't only for trolls, reminded Meyers, who then aired a slew of videos in which fans praised Jones.
