Grassroots activist describes frustration with Twitter over account suspension


Bret Weinstein, head of an advocacy group calling for national nonpartisanship, told Hill.TV about how Twitter suspended his organization’s account in a move that he said was unjustified.

Weinstein, the founder of Articles of Unity, said he hasn’t heard from Twitter about the reason why his account was banned, but added that he heard through unofficial channels that it had to do with additional accounts registered for the purpose of promoting their hashtag.

He insisted that an investigation by his group found nothing that “mirrored their accusation.”

Weinstein said that such actions block “our ability to access those people who would create the groundswell to make the movement viable as an actual political plan.”
