Another Prominent Conservative Journalist BANNED From Twitter
Tuesday, another prominent conservative journalist was banned from Twitter.
“Nick Monroe has been permanently suspended from Twitter. This is the email he received explaining why,” said right wing personality Brittany Pettibone.
Monroe, known for his long Tweet threads and shoe-leather research which often exposed conniving leftist media and political figures, allegedly violated Twitter’s rules “against evading permanent suspension.” He had nearly 50,000 followers.
Over the weekend, Monroe busted several prominent leftist media figures for sharing a fake quote attributed to President Donald J. Trump, fabricated by TIME columnist Ian Bremmer. He made a thread exposing those who shared the quote without verifying its truthfulness, embarrassing propagandists like CNN’s Ana Navarro, Wall Street Journal’s Farnaz Fassihi, and NPR’s Pam Fessler.
Monroe is the latest casualty of Silicon Valley tech censorship.
Early this month, Facebook and Instagram banned Laura Loomer, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Alex Jones. Loomer, Jones, and Yiannopoulos, along with other prominent right-wing figures like Gavin McInnes, Tommy Robinson, and Mike Morrison have been banned from Twitter.
Trump has often railed against the social media giants, but his administration has yet to take action to curb their censorship.
“The wonderful Diamond and Silk have been treated so horribly by Facebook. They work so hard and what has been done to them is very sad – and we’re looking into. It’s getting worse and worse for Conservatives on social media!” he said at the beginning of May.
