‘Kill Kavanaugh’ Tops Twitter Search and Hashtag Suggestions

Twitter's suggesting that its users might be interested in a hashtag about the murder of a federal judge and SCOTUS nominee

Typing "kill" into Twitter’s search function currently returns a shocking result at the top of its search suggestions: "#KillKavanaugh." It’s also currently the 3rd autocompleted suggestion in searches for "ki" and the fourth suggestion in searches for "k" as of this writing.

That’s right — by typing a single letter into search, Twitter's suggesting that its users might be interested in a hashtag about the murder of a federal judge and SCOTUS nominee.

The search suggestion was spotted by Instapundit earlier today and has been confirmed by Breitbart News.
"KillKavanaugh" search suggestions were also observed by Breitbart News in seemingly harmless searches for "ki" and "k."

In hashtag suggestions, "#KillKavanaugh" currently tops the list of suggestions when users type "#Ki"

Although many current tweets on the hashtag are critical of both the hashtag and Twitter’s double standards, earlier tweets use the hashtag unironically and uncritically. Several of these tweets haven't been removed by Twitter and the accounts that tweeted them don't appear to have been punished by Twitter in any way, despite the fact that some users say they have reported them.
