Twitter Admits Mistake, Lifts 2-Month Suspension of NY Conservative Party

'We have systems that find and remove multiple automated spam accounts in bulk, and yours was flagged as spam by mistake...'

Twitter finally apologized to New York’s Conservative Party two months after the technology platform suspended its account “by mistake,” the New York Post reported.

“We’re writing to let you know that we’ve unsuspended your account. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope to see you back on Twitter soon,” Twitter wrote in an email to NY Conservatives on Sept. 10.

“We have systems that find and remove multiple automated spam accounts in bulk, and yours was flagged as spam by mistake,” Twitter said.

Conservative Party Chairperson Gerard Kassar said this is the third time Twitter has targeted the party’s account this year, even though it has not violated any rules.

The last two suspensions were overturned in about a week after successful appeals.

It is unclear why the most recent suspension took two months to overturn.

And, since the account has been reactivated, Twitter has again begun to censor its content.

Twitter blocked users from accessing the Conservative Party’s page on Sept. 16, informing those who wanted to view its tweets that “this account is temporarily restricted.”

“You’re seeing this warning because there has been some unusual activity from this account,” the message continued.

Kassar said the NY Conservative Party uses the page to post news, not to stir controversy.

“Twitter creates more red flags for conservative organizations that ultimately result in suspensions,” Kassar said.

“As we got closer to the Democratic convention, I started to get really, really concerned because we don’t really use this in an extremely emotional hot-headed type way,” he said. “We use this as a matter-of-fact account about things that are occurring.”

The Conservative Party has not received Twitter’s verified “blue-check,” while the state’s progressive third-party, the Working Families Party, has received the verifying symbol.

Twitter’s double-standard remains in full force: conservatives failing to refer to someone by their transgender pronouns is hate speech that warrants suspension while leftists calling for actual violence is protected.
