Sounds like activists are forming websites outside of Twitter as a ‘meeting place’ for the resistance to work on banning certain Conservative accounts by putting more popular folks on lists for targeting.
For example, this group has a ‘Most Wanted’ list, which is actually pretty creepy phrasing when targeting individuals for what they think:
A friend has obtained a password for an ‘underground’ and ‘members only’ website, and releaved that @ResistingHate has set up a campaign to get me banned on @Twitter. They put me on their ‘Most Wanted’ list. I am NOT right-wing, and I my work focuses on tackling extremism. pic.twitter.com/8GtpLsGa68

Seems it’s not just ‘right-wing’ they are targeting, but anyone and everyone they disagree with.
Tammy Bruce shed some light on these nasty cockroaches:

Gosh, groups are looking to target Conservatives on Twitter.
We’re so shocked. *eye roll*
Surely Twitter will step up and do something to protect these accounts …
HA HA HA, oh man, we crack ourselves up.
Probably because you speak the truth that they don’t want to be shared.

Psh, didn’t you get the memo? Truth is racist, sexist, homophobic AND bigoted.
Get with the times, man.
There useful idiots Imam I wouldn’t give it any further thought. Your followers know what you’re about.

Of course, his followers know, but that doesn’t mean Twitter won’t suspend his account if groups of people are making a concerted effort to report him and others for no reason.
I got an email from twitter yesterday saying that I may have followed some accounts that they found to be connected to Russian meddling in the election. I guess twitter is trying to protect me ! Still pushing that Russia BS.

Yup, Twitter is sending out emails to various accounts explaining that evil Russian bots were tweeting and that they are doing everything they can to protect their site from more evil bots.
Meanwhile, plenty of evil accounts like the one targeting innocents for having different opinions remain untouched.
In fact, we’re surprised they haven’t verified the guy making these lists yet.
