Big League Politics reporter Peter D’Abrosca was banned from Twitter for “rules against evading permanent suspension,” even though this is his first time being suspended on the platform.
With little explanation, Big League Politics reporter Peter D’Abrosca discovered he was permanently banned from Twitter this afternoon, with the platform alleging that his Twitter account was used to evade a permanent suspension from the platform. D’Abrosca had never received even a temporary suspension from the platform prior to today.
Without any prior warning or previous suspensions on the platform, D’Abrosca received a notification informing him he would be permanently suspended for “Violating [Twitter’s] rules against evading permanent suspension.”

D’Abrosca and Big League Politics have attempted to contact Twitter to learn more about why the Big Tech platform decided to ban the conservative journalist and social media influencer and did not receive an immediate response.
This ban occurred on the heels of Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer’s permanent suspension from the platform last month, when Twitter bowed to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and banned Loomer at its command. Loomer famously handcuffed herself to Twitter’s headquarters in protest, sparking national news over allegations of political censorship.
Twitter temporarily stopped translating tweets from Hebrew in the following days.
As the tech giant attempts to strangle Big League Politics’ voice on the platform, it has allowed the overwhelming majority of users who posted death threats and dox requests against the Covington Catholic High School students framed as racists last week to keep their accounts.
Political commentator C.J. Pearson has accumulated a database with over 20,000 such tweets posted by verified Twitter users, in a movement he calls #VerifiedBullies.
Gab Attacked in Coordinated Hacking Attempt, Timed to Coincide with CPAC
This hack coincided with Trump’s CPAC speech.
Free speech social media platform Gab was attacked in a coordinated hacking operation sometime this weekend, with malicious actors briefly compromising accounts of prominent users of the platform.
Gab founder Andrew Torba disclosed the cyberattack, revealing that left-wing operatives had sought to compromise both his own Gab account and an archive account reserved for President Donald Trump. The attack compromised Trump’s reserved account minutes before the President was slated to speak on-stage at CPAC- with the timing suggesting the President may announce he’s joining the free speech social media service.
It’s unclear which other accounts were targeted. Torba confirmed that Gab was cooperating with law enforcement in response to the breach. Alt-tech competitor Parler also suffered from frequent data breaches and insecurity, and it may be that powerful institutions determined to take down Parler have shifted their focus to terroristic tactics targeting Gab.
Gab has been targeted on previous occasions by entities that oppose its mission to restore free speech on the internet. Torba’s disclosure of the incident differs greatly from the deceptive business tactics of Facebook and Twitter, which regularly decline to reveal data breaches and sell user information to corporations and governments at a whim and without any user consent.
Big League Politics is monitoring the situation for any further developments.
