Twitter suspends Dean Baker's account: Twitter suspended Center for Economic & Policy Research Senior Economist Dean Baker, according to a purported screenshot shared by Washington Post Opinions Columnist Greg Sargent. Sargent tweeted, "Just connected with Dean Baker, who was just suspended from Twitter. Here's what he received. He writes about *economics,* FFS. He says he has no idea what triggered this, and Twitter cited nothing specific." Twitter claimed the account violated the platform's rules against "platform manipulation and spam." It is unclear if a specific post triggered the suspension.
