Twitter Suspends Milo Yiannopoulos Permanently
Anyone who follows news about the gay conservative firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos knows he has a history of being harassed by Twitter. Last year, the social media site took away his verification and suspended him temporarily.
Now, Twitter has shuttered his account for good.
Milo Suspended Permanently by Twitter Minutes Before ‘Gays For Trump’ Party At RNC
Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has been suspended from Twitter once more just 20 minutes before his “Gays for Trump” event takes place at the Republican National Convention.
The justification for the suspension is currently unknown, although it could be as a result of Milo’s run-in with Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones on the site. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey publicly reached out to Jones late on Monday evening after she complained about “abuse” on the platform. Milo was suspended despite the fact that he sent no abusive tweets to the actress.
BuzzFeed gleefully reported that the suspension is permanent, citing a statement from Twitter promising a clampdown on “targeted abuse.” Milo has also received a message from Twitter confirming that that his ban is permanent, copied below.

Twitter’s claims of Milo abusing their terms are laughable at best.
The site took no action against users calling for violence against police.
Twitter has also been extremely friendly to the Black Lives Matter movement and is routinely used by supporters of ISIS and other Islamic terror groups who suffer no consequences.
American leftists also use the service to attack conservatives viciously on a regular basis but aren’t suspended for doing so.
The ban on Milo is purely political and one sided.
