Twitter, whose founder has expressed regret that his organization’s advocacy for free speech in any way may have contributed to Donald Trump’s election as president, on Wednesday suspended for 12 hours WND.com’s account for a headline tweet on Donna Brazile’s involvement in the scandal developing over the death of DNC staffer Seth Rich.
Rich died in a gun attack in Washington, D.C., last July, and several individuals have commented that he was, or likely was, the source of DNC insider emails that were turned over to WikiLeaks and published on the Internet just as now-twice failed Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton was lining up her party’s nomination.
On Wednesday, Twitter sent a message to WND with the tweet, and a button to click for deletion. “If you feel that your account has been locked in error, you can appeal by contacting our support team here,” the company said.
The company declined to comment when asked by a WND reporter, except to ask which account was being referenced.
