After coming under fire for banning the very popular @AOCpress parody account that mocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Twitter sent the user a second explanation for their ban that makes no sense to those outside of the big tech oligarch’s halls, and does little to help other users avoid committing the same violations.
Earlier this week, Twitter banned the famous @AOCpress account, even though it clearly identified itself as a parody both in the account’s name and in its bio. Multiple conservative outlets, including Big League Politics, reported on this move to censor conservative comedy. This apparently prompted Twitter to send additional information to the user, clarifying that it was not banned for being a parody.
Instead, Twitter now claims it was banned because the account posted “duplicative or substantially similar content, replies, or mentions over multiple accounts or multiple duplicate updates on one account,” or created “duplicate or substantially similar accounts.”
The account may also have been considered a “fake or misleading account.”
Twitter has just informed Mike that they will NOT be reinstating his account & their reasoning as to why they banned him has changed.
What is Twitter’s definition of similar content? All parody accounts are fake, so will Twitter start banning them too? pic.twitter.com/ErydawKhkU

Of course, Twitter provided no evidence to back its claims, nor does it explain what its verbose accusations mean in layman’s terms. From the communication, it seems as if Twitter is accusing the account of spamming, and again, of passing of the clearly identified parody account as the real Ocasio-Cortez.
There is a new parody account mocking Ocasio-Cortez, but it was made in May of 2019, likely after the previous account was terminated. Another parody was created in January, and was not banned. It is not known if the same Twitter user is running this account, but it seems unlikely.
Twitter has repeatedly ignored requests for comment from Big League Politics throughout this latest censorship purge that has seen Carpe Donktum, David Horowitz, the @MAGAphobia account that chronicled violence against supporters of President Donald J. Trump, and the @porn_lawyer account parodying Michael Avenatti impacted.
Supposed Sheriff’s Deputy That Went Viral After ‘Resigning’ Busted as a Likely Impostor
It’s very likely an impostor is running the account.
An anonymous ‘sheriff’s deputy’ that claimed to have resigned from his position as a law enforcement officer in protest of the death of George Floyd is considered by many to be an impostor.
@navyvetbolt gathered more than 100,000 retweets on Twitter on Monday with a picture of what appeared to be police gear, claiming he had just resigned from an unnamed law enforcement agency in protest of the killing of Floyd.
The viral tweet later reached the front page of Reddit, with the anonymous account pivoting swiftly into partisan anti-Trump and left-wing political commentary.
However, some were unconvinced that navyvetbolt is who he claims to be, pointing out that much of the gear he posted in his original tweet is commonly sold on ecommerce websites such as eBay and Alibaba. Most notably, the holster he uses for what is nominally his service pistol doesn’t resemble holsters commonly used by law enforcement agencies, more closely resembling a civilian holster.
Firearms enthusiast @LouisvilleGun uploaded a lengthy set of a arguments in an imgur detailing why @navyvetbolt is likely a law enforcement imposter, exposing the wide list of discrepancies surrounding his claims with the make and quality of the supposed police gear he posted on Twitter.
@navyvetbolt is yet to provide any solid evidence proving he’s a (now former) law enforcement agent, claiming to do so would somehow put his life or family at risk.
He posted a picture of a supposedly department-issued rifle that is identifiable in the photo as a Smith and Wesson M&P15.
That form of AR-style rifle is one of the more commonly owned and sold AR’s in the United States. It’s thought of by some as a more ‘affordable’ rifle, often retailing for prices around $600.
Navyvetbolt goes on to claim that the rifle has been converted into a fully automatic weapon.
It’s extremely dubious to imagine that a law enforcement agency would even issue Smith and Wesson M&P15’s to its personnel, considering that the rifle is considered to be more of an expressly civilian weapon. Sheriff’s Departments and police agencies can obtain fully automatic rifles from military-grade manufacturers legally; it would make no sense to convert a civilian AR-15 to fully automatic for law enforcement use. And it’s even more outlandish that whatever law enforcement agency navyvetbolt claims to have worked for would let him keep a fully automatic rifle owned by the agency after resigning in an act of political protest. Not to mention that such a transfer would place him in violation of the ATF’s tax stamp rules for the transfer of fully automatic firearms.
Almost certainly a poorly disguised hoaxster, unwilling to provide any real evidence of his claims of affiliation with a law enforcement agency, using a sheriff’s badge purchased on eBay or Alibaba in order to advance a left-wing political agenda.
