Left-Wing Activists Banned From Twitter After False-Report Campaign:

Several left-wing activists on Twitter have been suspended from the platform after far-right users launched a false-report campaign. 

Prominent left-wing accounts have been banned from Twitter since Musk’s takeover, the Intercept reported first. This includes Chad Loder, an anti-fascist researcher who identified a Proud Boy member involved in the US Capitol Riots on January 6 2021; Vishal Pratap Singh, a journalist who has reported on far-right protests in Southern California; Elm Fork John Brown Gun Club, a group that provides armed security for LGBTQ+ events in Texas; and CrimethInc, an anarchist organization that publishes books and podcasts.

Twitter is now Musk’s toy, and he can use it however he wants, but he isn’t defending free speech, and nobody should feel like it’s the “World’s Town Hall” to be defended from regulation anymore. He can’t have it both ways.
