Roger Stone says he was banned again from Twitter after reappearing on the social media website following an announcement that Elon Musk would purchase the company.
"You might note then rather than seek to get my existing Twitter account with almost 1,000,000 followers reinstated I purposely posted a new account which I knew would immediately be banned," Stone said in criticizing the left-wing website and its writer, Zach Petrizzo.
Stone also told the Daily Beast that “I posted a new account to prove a point" and added that "I look forward to whoever made the decision to suspend my account getting fired. Attn: Elon Musk.”
Stone also confirmed his new Twitter account was "suspended after just six hours," saying that "so much for free speech" after the announcement that Musk would take over the company.
“Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate,” Musk wrote on Tuesday in response to another post about the laptop story. With just about two weeks to go before the November election, Twitter blocked sharing of the NY Post report and locked the newspaper out of its account for more than two weeks.
Later, then-Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey told a congressional hearing that blocking the article was an incorrect decision.
“It was literally just a process error. This was not against them in any particular way,” Dorsey told the panel at the time. “If we remove a violation, we require people to correct it,” he added.
