Twitter banned Sir Lefy Farr-Wright (@SupportOurLefty), a left-wing parody account which had nearly 25k followers, for “platform manipulation or spam.” Sir Lefty Farr-Wright is still active on Parler and issued the following statement there:
Well, I woke up this morning to discover that my Twitter account has been suspended. No reason was given except for an allegation of “platform manipulation and dissemination of spam”, which is ridiculous as I detest spam, being much more of a Hard-Right Corned Beef man myself.
I’ve appealed against Twitter’s arbitrary decision, but am not terribly hopeful of them reversing their decision. I have no ‘backup’ account on Twitter and feel no inclination to start all over again, given that they would probably just ban me again. So this may well be the end of my Twitter career, which makes me feel very sad, as I have met some really great people there over the past 4 years.
On a happier note, I will have much more time to post here on the Far-Right Parler and on the Hard-Right Gab, and to interact much more with my friends here. Talk about not all being lost!
P.S. I would be immensely grateful if someone could pass on this message to my Twitter friends, so they’ll know what’s happened.
