He just reads like some moron posting offensive stuff on the internet to wind people up/take the piss. Massive troll backfire indeed, but it's not like he's some card carying fascist espousing white nationhood yada yada. I don't feel hugely sorry for him but the sentence is total bullshit, 56 fucking days in jail? Did he tweet about pinching some Evian as well? Respectable and 'well regarded' members of the community come up with far more deeply insidious racist shit which they deeply believe on a daily basis. In public. Twitter users' sensibilities are not a good decider when it comes to the state punishing people. As for universities taking action, and people being called to account for what they've said, that's good n fair enough, but this sentence just comes off as a scare tactic.
