Twitter has permanently suspended the account of conservative activist group Project Veritas, after the organization released a video of a reporter questioning a Facebook executive outside their home, the New York Times reports.
The account of Project Veritas’s founder, James O’Keefe, was also temporarily locked.
In a statement given to the NYT, Twitter said the @Project_Veritas account was suspended for “repeated violations of Twitter’s private information policy.”.
Twitter says it repeatedly violated its private information policy.
In a statement published by Policito, O’Keefe said the offending video included footage of a reporter questioning Facebook vice president Guy Ronsen, but denied that Project Veritas had published his private information.
“I’M BACK,” reads its pinned post, accompanied by a video outlining the group’s dispute with Twitter.
Prior to its suspension, Project Veritas’s Twitter account was prominent on the platform, and counted Donald Trump’s adult sons as followers. »
