Some of the best accounts on Twitter are parody accounts.
But apparently, if your parody makes fun of a certain popular Socialist Democrat Twitter will shut it down, even if it has over 85k followers.
I guess you’re not allowed to make fun of democrats anymore. pic.twitter.com/gU1kMg8vo4

Twitter has suspended the AOC Press Release (@AOCPress) account which is obviously a parody. It says so RIGHT in the name.
Oddly enough, there are tons of Trump parodies, but this one account was a no-go.
Wonder if she complained to Twitter that it sounded too much like her? If her cult was getting confused?
Probably because it was too hard to tell her actual tweets from the parody. It’s hard to parody passionately ignorant when the original does it so well.

This editor has had to look for that blue check more than once.
Just biased @Twitter being itself.

To be fair they do an amazing job of making fun of themselves……. albeit it unintentionally.

When the account is already a parody maybe they should suspend other parodies?
Is “not making fun of Democrats” an official twitter rule?

If so Twitchy is in deeeeeep trouble.
That’s too bad. One of the smartest parodies around.

@TitaniaMcGrath can't be far behind.

Man, we hope not.
We adore her.
Twitter's entire "You might also like" section for me this morning was conspiracy theorist Dems. They're just trolling everyone center-right & beyond

Twitter likes to suggest following people like Chris Hayes and Jennifer Rubin to this editor, like THAT will happen.
This should not happen. And to be clear, I like and support @AOC. But censorship of parody is crazy!!
— Fuzzy (@BlueFuzzy_M) May 7, 2019
Even AOC supporters know this is BS.
All censorship is crazy.

It's full court press for tilting the 2020 elections!
You ain't seen nuthin' yet!

We’re starting to wonder.
@OfficeOfMike suspended too (runs a lot of these parody accounts)

Political Cartoons and Jokes have been a staple in the Public American Social Spectrum since before 1776.
It seems to have died today at the hands of Twitter.
Almost a 250 year run (Quarter Millennium), and now the fun is over…
Thanks Twitter :S

He made fun of the wrong person. What a shame what's going on here.

It’s almost like Twitter wants to fail.
