MRC's Michael Chapman

Locked Account

Twitter locks Michael Chapman's account: MRC CNSNews Managing Editor Michael Chapman tweeted in response to a tweet asking what users would rather do than listen to President Joe Biden's State of the Union address. Chapman replied, "@catturd2 Eat pieces of broken glass." Twitter flagged the tweet for violating Twitter's rules against "promoting or encouraging suicide or self-harm," according to screenshots shared with MRC Free Speech America. Twitter required Chapman to remove the tweet and locked his account for 12 hours, preventing him from tweeting, retweeting, fleeting, following, or liking content.
