Big League Politics reporter Peter D’Abrosca was banned from Twitter for “rules against evading permanent suspension,” even though this is his first time being suspended on the platform.
With little explanation, Big League Politics reporter Peter D’Abrosca discovered he was permanently banned from Twitter this afternoon, with the platform alleging that his Twitter account was used to evade a permanent suspension from the platform. D’Abrosca had never received even a temporary suspension from the platform prior to today.
Without any prior warning or previous suspensions on the platform, D’Abrosca received a notification informing him he would be permanently suspended for “Violating [Twitter’s] rules against evading permanent suspension.”

This ban occurred on the heels of Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer’s permanent suspension from the platform last month, when Twitter bowed to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and banned Loomer at its command. Loomer famously handcuffed herself to Twitter’s headquarters in protest, sparking national news over allegations of political censorship.
