McConnell's campaign locked out by Twitter for posting critic's profanity-laced video.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's campaign has been thrown in Twitter jail.
After sharing a video of a profanity-laced protest outside of the Kentucky Republican's home in Louisville, the campaign Twitter account, Team Mitch, has been locked out.
"This morning, Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell.
This is a problem with the speech police in America today," McConnell campaign manager Kevin Golden told the Courier Journal.
"Twitter will allow the words of “Massacre Mitch” to trend nationally on their platform, but locks our account for posting actual threats against us," Golden added.
"We appealed and Twitter stood by their decision, saying our account will remain locked until we delete the video.". »
