(RepublicanWire.org) – A Twitter user said: “REPORT: Twitter has suspended the account of prominent liberal journalist Aaron Rupar as well as reporters from CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post.
Twitter has yet to explain its rationale for suspending the accounts, but CEO Elon Musk has been adamant that anyone “doxxing” other people or revealing their current whereabouts will be suspended or terminated because they’re putting folks in danger.
The billionaire has a personal reason for his strong views on the matter: on Wednesday a person stalked Musk’s family. The person blocked his family’s car, thinking Elon was in it, and climbed on the hood of the car. Musk’s toddler son was in the car.
Elon described was wearing Antifa-like clothes, but Musk’s people were able to get photos of the perp and his license plate.
Twitter’s suspension of the account @ElonJet Wednesday caused lots of chatter and may have led up to the rash of Thursday evening suspensions. @ElonJet earned celebrity status by posting information about the whereabouts of the mogul’s private plane. The Verge explains:
On Wednesday, Twitter suspended @ElonJet and @ElonJet’s creator and introduced a new policy against sharing live location information. That includes sharing “links to 3rd-party URL(s) of travel routes,” and it appears Twitter counts a link to @ElonJet’s Mastodon account as a violation of the policy.
The Texas Observer said: “Washington Post reporter Drew Harwell, who had previously tweeted about the bans on ElonJet and Mastodon, has now apparently also been suspended from Twitter??”
NBC reporter Ben Collins said: “Journalists who cover Elon Musk have been suspended on Twitter tonight: @Donie O’Sullivan from CNN, Aaron Rupar and the Washington Post’s @drewharwell. “Rupar tells me he has “no idea” why it happened.”
The left will certainly explode over these suspensions, even as they stood idly by and didn’t care or write long opinion pieces or post passionate tweets when it was conservatives who were getting shadow banned, suspended, and kicked off the platform. Indeed they’re already whining: “A spokesman for the New York Times called the suspensions ‘questionable and unfortunate’ in a statement Thursday night.”
