- Twitter permanently suspended James O’Keefe’s personal account on the platform today, following a series of bombshell undercover videos of a CNN employee.
- The tech giant dealt a blow to the First Amendment and did the unthinkable by removing the account saying, “You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,” and “You can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts.”
- O’KEEFE’S STATEMENT: “I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts.’ This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay. Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me. The complaint will be filed Monday.”
- This comes only months after Twitter suspended the accounts of both Project Veritas and Project Veritas Action. This also comes at a time when O’Keefe’s account was on the verge of reaching 1,000,000 followers.
