Tommy Robinson suspended from Twitter – possibly permanently

Most of the newspapers have the story within the last hour. 

Tommy Robinson – ex-leader of the English Defence League – has been banned from Twitter.

His account is marked as being “suspended”, but the BBC has learned that the US company has decided to permanently revoke his access.

Twitter declined to comment, but it is understood the decision was taken after Mr Robinson was judged to have breached its “hateful conduct” policy. It had previously temporarily suspended the activist several times.

In addition, Twitter has acted against another account – @tommysnewspage – which had also been associated with the 35-year-old.

Mr Robinson continues to operate a Facebook page, a YouTube account and a personal website.

Robinson told Breitbart London exclusively on Wednesday: “I saw this coming. They’ve been building up to it for some time. It’s coming from politicians who have been threatening social media firms, and telling them who they want on their platforms and who they don’t.

Robinson made explicit reference to London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who recently travelled to Austin, Texas, to threaten social media firms for allowing opinions contrary to his on their platform.

The author of Mohammed’s Quran added: “The establishment wants to be able to say things about us without us being able to say things back, without being able to defend ourselves or explain our positions. This is how indoctrination works. Now people will only get one side of the story on Twitter.”

I expected the Hope not Hate funding Mirror newspaper to be jubilant. But the comments are most critical at this attack on free speech. The best rated comment (thus far) sums it up

“What about the jihadists Twitter accounts they are still allowed one rule for one and another rule for anything politically correct.”
