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.
