Fox News reports:
Conservative activist Charlie Kirk blasted Twitter after the social media giant blocked the Turning Point USA founder for “violating rules against posting misleading information about voting.” “I’m kind of in a hostage situation with Twitter,” Kirk said Sunday on Fox News’ “The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton.” “I do not have access to my Twitter account because I tweeted a widely reported story.”
The social media platform – which has been lambasted by conservative lawmakers and pundits over the last week for blocking users from sharing a New York Post article about Hunter Biden’s alleged emails – blocked Kirk from using the site after he tweeted a story about mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania in which he incorrectly stated that people had requested multiple ballots.
Charlie Kirk is now locked out of Twitter.
This is such bullshit.
FCC & FEC need to get off their asses now!

My friend Charlie Kirk has just been locked out of his Twitter account…
Because he called out potential voter fraud in Pennsylvania.
This is bullshit.

To all the establishment conservatives who said nothing about (or worse, even DEFENDED) the deplarforming of Alex Jones, look where we are now.
The very mainstream Charlie Kirk is locked out of his Twitter account for posting about voter fraud.
We warned you it would get worse.

Charlie Kirk posted a falsehood about Pennsylvania rejecting ballots to imply voting was being corrupted (when PA actually weeded out *duplicate requests for ballots*).
Twitter locked his account.
The dipshit collective on the right is wetting its pants and sobbing. https://t.co/ifWC7KLOjE

Silencing of dissident Charlie Kirk exposes United States hypocrisy in which freedom to grift is denied to all but the richest one percent. pic.twitter.com/1ZiHHiErkD

You’d think a lawyer and member of Congress would understand these things but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ https://t.co/PVYVvwzN2u

Charlie Kirk is apparently locked out of @twitter for election disinformation.
Last week, his org was found to be operating a bot network on this platform, in violation of Twitter’s rules against artificial amplification.
How many chances does he get? Do we all get that many?
