Grabien founder and editor-in-chief Tom Elliott slammed Twitter for using its unprecedented power as a platform to aid progressive causes. Twitter reportedly censored him for questioning the merit of COVID-19 vaccines, which have demonstrably failed to bring the world back to normal.
Twitter has not yet responded to an inquiry from MRC Free Speech America to confirm if, and/or explain why, Elliott was censored. However, Elliott explained to MRC Free Speech America via email that “[t]his is the third time Twitter has falsely claimed I violated their rules.”
Elliott gave a damning assessment of Twitter’s role in the public exchange of ideas: “It seems clear this is not so much about [enforcing] rules as it is trying to silence a prominent conservative journalist who is frequently critical of Twitter execs’ habit of manipulating their platform to help progressives win the culture wars.”
Twitter has reportedly targeted Elliott multiple times for questioning the left’s COVID-19 narrative.
