PJ Media Editor, a Veteran Journalist and Terror Expert, Removed from Twitter

Last week PJ Media D.C. editor Bridget Johnson was suspended from Twitter with no warning or explanation. It’s been nearly a week now and thus far Twitter has yet to offer a reason for the suspension.

According to Twitter’s Help Center, there are two types of suspension — a temporary timeout that results in reinstatement in a matter of hours, and a second, much more serious “permanent” suspension. Bridget’s appears to be the latter. The company did not flag a particular tweet that was problematic and her request for an appeal has gone unanswered.

    Twitter has shown that they are the enemy of free speech. They can either be a honest about squashing free speech or they can be regulated as a utility.

      Alll of them must be regulated as utilities, because they are the modern equivalent of the telephone. That government does not indicates that the government does not believe in free speech.

        Never have.

        I never have, but that isn’t the point here. These are modern utilities and need to be regulated as such.

  • I got suspended without notice from my own freakin’ e-mail account (for the second time in the last 24 months having to find a new provider). The straw that broke the camel’s back — I’ve eliminated EVERYTHING that even reeks of microsoft, google, and other monopolies etc. on my systems. And found a super-secure open source e-mail provider that gives the user absolute control.

    I’ve even stopped automatic updates from microsoft (no notifications whatsoever) on my systems that use ms, and made a delightful discovery: ms auto updates were what was consuming all my cpu, because it constantly polls for updates, and is constantly reading your hard disk and sending info to ms. Computer runs much faster without it, web much faster too.

    So what do I do for ms updates? Simple — once a week I manually update, together with all my other programs that need updates, and do it in one-fell-swoop. Meanwhile my systems run incredibly more efficiently.
