Twitter Unlocks McConnell Account After GOP Boycott

Politico reports:

Twitter today reversed course and unlocked the campaign account of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, moving to defuse a growing controversy with the Republican political establishment.

The company on Wednesday had frozen the McConnell account over a post featuring a profanity-laced video of protesters hurling threats toward the GOP lawmaker’s Kentucky home. The post, the company said, violated its policy on tweets containing violent threats.

The Trump campaign and the national Republican campaign committees had announced Thursday they would stop spending money to advertise on Twitter after it took action against McConnell’s account.
