Jordan Peterson said he “would rather die” than delete the tweet about Elliot Page that got his account shut down. This makes it seem like he will never use Twitter again.
Last week, people close to Peterson said that Twitter had suspended his account and that he could get it back in 12 hours if he deleted a tweet that said Pride was a “sin” back in the day and mentioned the “criminal doctor” who took “Ellen” Page’s breasts off.

Peterson has now said what he thinks about Twitter and talked about the things he said that got him banned from the site. The Canadian social media star put up a nearly 15-minute video on Instagram and YouTube in which he talked about the situation and repeated what he had said before.
