Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillion knows a thing or two about Twitter bans — The Babylon Bee’s Twitter account was suspended after it misgendered Rachel Levine by awarding her “Man of the Year.” Libs of TikTok, which is now backed by Dillion, has been suspended again, this time for seven days, for “hateful conduct,” although Dillion says no specific tweets were flagged in the complaint. Dillion has an attorney fire off a letter to Twitter saying he will sue them if Libs of TikTok is permanently suspended.
BREAKING: Twitter has once again hit Libs of TikTok with a 7-day suspension for "hateful conduct." No specific tweets were flagged.
We've since fired off another letter to Twitter (attached). They're on notice that we will sue them if they permanently suspend us. pic.twitter.com/3M4ig6DmSu

“Finally, Twitter’s censorship activities are not going unnoticed,” reads the letter. “Outside of perhaps the Gilded Age of a bygone era, rarely has a multi-billion-dollar company’s words — claiming to be “the free speech wing of the free speech party while censoring journalism — so contradicted its actions.”
Of course, a lot of people are responding that Libs of TikTok should be permanently banned because it engages in “stochastic terrorism” campaigns against children’s hospitals by — gasp! — reposting their own videos.

They want Twitter to fight for their right to advertise and make money.
What a strange practice to remove something entirely worthy of public discussion.

Good. They deserve suing. They have not respected the platform rules they agreed to. REGULATE (and sue).

Twitter claimed to be “the free speech wing of the free speech party”? That’s adorable. https://t.co/43ahVjQ4aO

Yes but only those who agree with them are free to speak , that’s their idea of free speech

Sue them either way.

I firmly believe there's a they/them sitting at a desk that does this at will. There's no other explanation.

So truth, facts, and logic is hate speech?

They don't cite a particular tweet for the same reason you don't tell someone why you are sacking them. "Hateful conduct" is an opinion.

Simple facts are now "hateful."

We need to keep in mind that the forces behind such censorship are also active in our governments. This kind of removal is an omen of what they would do to undesirables offline, in the real world, once they accumulate enough power. We've seen this cycle play out in history.

That’s why they keep trying to redefine conservatism as white Christian nationalism, extreme MAGA, and “Christofascism.” If that who you think your “enemy” is, you’ll think you’re righteous in shutting it down however you can.
