Twitter has permanently suspended The Gateway Pundit website's account over what the social media company says are "repeated violations" of the platform's rules.
Twitter officials didn't respond to a request for comment by press time.
In an article on The Gateway Pundit website, Hoft argued that the suspension came hours after his website posted on Twitter an update regarding an ongoing investigation of Election Day irregularities at the Detroit TCF Center, which was the subject of a number of allegations about election fraud.
Hoft didn't respond by press time to The Epoch Times' request to comment on the suspension.
Twitter said it permanently suspended MyPillow for violating its policy against “ban evasion.” Lindell, a friend and outspoken supporter of former President Donald Trump, was banned from Twitter a week ago over his repeated claims that the presidential election was rigged against Trump.
Following the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol breach, Twitter and other Silicon Valley companies ramped up their content monitoring, removing groups and speech that it claimed could incite violence and hate.
The companies' methods for determining what content meets or breaches policies have been repeatedly criticized for alleged political bias and censorship, with critics saying that much of the policing targets conservatives and people deemed supporters of Trump.
