Looks like Moira Fitzgerald‘s account is back up and running! .@dickc @PolitixFireball @Moira1987 Glad to see you acknowledging #twittergulag problem. http://t.co/sTw1c2qf — Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 12, 2012 Hopefully, we can continue to expect quick turnaround from Twitter next time someone is unjustly gulag’d.
For those not familiar with Little Green Footballs’ Charles Johnson, he was once an anti-jihad blogger who returned to the progressive fold a few years ago. Since then, he’s spent his days in a series of giant green meltdowns about fascist wingnut haters. So what did those nasty right-wingers do this time? Death threats? Hate […]

#freeshanewright22 and more: Conservative users still trapped in #twittergulag; Update: Shane Wright freed, spam block attack confirmed
Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty…and apparently, it’s the price of a conservative presence on Twitter. In the wake of two, high-profile suspensions and reinstatements of conservative Twitter users @FreeMarket_US and @ChrisLoesch, the Twitter Gulag is still quite crowded. Tonight, social-media users on the Right called attention to the troubling suspension of conservative activists @ShaneWright22. There are more. Twitchy has the scoop — and another call to arms.
That’s a good question. Twitchy readers know that international film and television star Nick Searcy takes no prisoners on Twitter, so how has he managed to stay out of Twitter Gulag? The short answer: Twitter is scared of me whipping its ass too. It wouldn't DARE suspend me. @NotReallyBarack — Yes, Nick Searcy! (@yesnicksearcy) October 25, […]
Hashtag to power is the new truth to power.
Heads up: being sent to the gulag isn’t just for conservative Twitter accounts. Blogger Nice Deb reports that her WordPress blog has been suspended without warning over alleged terms of service violations. Conservative followers, however, suspect an attack by the Left. @NiceDeb I'm gonna guess 1) U defended free speech too often 2) U criticized […]
In a rare personal tweet, new media pioneer Matt Drudge warns that some of the biggest names in the social media world are now no longer just tilting left, but ready to throw down the gauntlet and come out swinging for President Obama: Interesting @DRUDGE tweet about left-wing social media bias – name-checks GOOG, TWITTER […]
Indeed! As Twitchy reported yesterday, Twitter users coordinated an effort to restore the @Instapundit Twitter handle to Instapundit Glenn Reynolds. You see, for a while the trademarked name was used by a fan. The fan just used it as an RSS feed for Instapundit posts, which was, of course, fine with Mr. Reynolds. However, when […]
By now, you’re very familiar with the stories of conservatives getting trapped in the #TwitterGulag after being blocked and reported for spam. But it seems that the official @BarackObama Twitter account has also taken to blocking critics of the president. From the Jammie Wearing Fool: Well, so much for transparency. Apparently the thin-skinned occupant of the White […]
At least she didn’t make a joke about expelling a dead child through her good-looking crotch. S’pose that’s been done already. And if there’s one thing Sarah won’t do, it’s showing how desperately she craves attention by reusing material. Oh, wait. As you well know, Twitchy is no fan of the #Twittergulag. But would it […]
