Alex Berenson

Locked Account

Twitter locks Alex Berenson's account: Twitter locked former New York Times journalist and author Alex Berenson's account, according to a post on Berenson's Substack. "The truth is that they're having a tantrum because I am about to publish something that will be very embarrassing for them; they cannot stop me but they can (temporarily) keep me from using my account to do it," he said. Twitter reportedly claimed Berenson violated the platform's policy on "spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19." It is unclear if a specific post led to the account lock. Twitter did not respond to MRC Free Speech America's request for comment.
