Locked Account

Twitter locks Geert Wilder's account: Twitter locked Dutch politician and Chairman Party for Freedom (PVV) Geert Wilders' account, according to a purported screenshot shared by Wilders. The tweet said, "Islam: a religion of peace..." It included a graphic photo of a group men wearing masks and holding up an ISIS flag in front of a victim of their terror. Twitter locked Wilders' account claiming the post violated the platform's rules against "posting media depicting gratuitous gore." In a tweet about the incident, Wilders said, "Are you serious @Twitter? You just locked my account because of a tweet from 2014?"
