CUMBERLAND COUNTY, PA – Twitter was at it again this week, banning the account of Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano after Mastriano held a state panel to investigate the possibility of election fraud in that state. Both Mastriano and President Donald J. Trump lashed out at the social media giant which has been banning and throttling accounts of American conservatives.
“Wow! Twitter bans highly respected Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano after he did a great job of leading a hearing on the 2020 Election fraud,” Trump tweeted. “They and the Fake News, working together, want to SILENCE THE TRUTH. Can’t let that happen. This is what Communist countries do!”
“This censorship is unacceptable in America. A nation that I served for most of my adult life,” Mastriano tweeted from his official elected profile account. “The point of Twitter suspending this personal account is to prevent me from posting to my Senate account—to silence our voice.”
Twitter claimed Mastriano’s account was banned by accident.
“This account was mistakenly suspended for perceived violations of our impersonation policy. This was an error. We have immediately reversed the decision and the account has been reinstated,” the company said in a statement.
