Social media’s left-wing bias has again reared its ugly head, this time taking down one the most popular accounts on Twitter. “Defiant Ls” has been banned for doing absolutely nothing. You don’t know how I can tell they did not do nothing. The account doesn’t comment on any post it makes.
If you aren’t familiar with what I’m talking about, we’ll get to that in a second.

Also @DefiantLs made the crucial error of screenshotting tweets people on the Left didn’t like — and then got suspended for that. Sounds legit.

Defiant Ls’s genius is its ability to take screenshots from hypocrites and put them side-by side. They never comment on the screenshots they post, and they don’t encourage harassment of anyone. In fact, by using screenshots instead of quote tweets, Defiant Ls eliminates the direct link to the hypocrite’s account.
Here’s an example of one of its creations.

In short, it’s one of the best accounts on Twitter because the hypocrites in question provide 100 percent of the material for what Defiant Ls does. There can be no claims of bias or “misinformation” in that scenario because all that’s being posted are the exact words of the people who contradicted themselves.
Defiant Ls has posted a response, noting the reason for the suspension of the account was “ban evasion.” Yet, how could an account with 350,000 followers, that wasn’t banned, be evading a ban? That doesn’t even make sense.

It is all fake nonsense. Twitter’s petty, authoritarian moderators got their feelings hurt because Defiant Ls had figured out a way to masterfully expose the hypocrisy of the left without having to actually fire a shot of its own. Twitter wanted another reason to ban the DefiantLs account. It’s all so ridiculous.
In the grand scheme of things, yes, it’s just a Twitter account being suspended. But it’s bigger than that because it’s yet another domino falling in Big Tech’s quest to quash right-wing creators. Defiant Ls isn’t the first, and it won’t be the last to be targeted. One day, however, there will be a legitimate competitor that can defeat the social media giants. That doesn’t exist yet, though.
