Viva Frei

Locked Account

Twitter locks Viva Frei's account: YouTube commentator Viva Frei said in a Rumble video that Twitter had locked his account. He responded to a thread from Media Matters' Matt Gertz about Paul Pelosi's attack. Frei said, "A 16-tweet thread with himself, explaining everything that happened, before police release body cam footage. Or disclose where they found DePape's clothing. And @MattGertz accuses others of conspiracy theory/disinformation Massive events will generate massive discussion. Period" Twitter claimed the tweet violated the platform's rules. It did not specify how the tweet violated its rules, according to Frei. Twitter required Frei to delete the tweet in order to regain access to his account. In his video about the incident, Frei said he will not delete the Tweet. "I don't have enough middle fingers to say how I feel about that recommendation," he said. Twitter did not respond to MRC Free Speech America's request for comment at the time of publication.
