Rep. Lauren Boebert

Locked Account

Twitter reverses decision to lock Republican Congresswoman's account until after Biden inauguration: Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) received notification from Twitter that she was locked out of her account until President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated. The restriction rendered Boebert unable to tweet, retweet, comment or "like" posts. However, Twitter eventually backtracked admitting its decision to suspend Rep. Boebert was a mistake. "In this instance, our teams took the incorrect enforcement action. The Tweet in question is now labeled in accordance with our Civic Integrity Policy," a Twitter spokesperson told Business Insider. "The Tweet will not be required to be removed and the account will not be temporarily locked." Following the lift of her suspension Rep. Boebert remarked, "Twitter randomly shut my account down with no explanation. They do this to thousands of conservatives every single day. When the press reported the ban, it was lifted. What about the thousands of Americans who have been banned and are never heard from again?"
