Twitter Locks Concerned Women For America CEO’s Account: Report

Twitter apparently locked out the account of Concerned Women for America’s CEO.

TheBlaze reported that Penny Nance, the CEO of the Concerned Women for America (CWA), was locked out of her account after she referred to Lia Thomas as a “man.” Thomas is a transgender woman who won awards by competing in female swimming events.

Nance shared the tale of Thomas’s swimmer displacement. The swimmer said that officials “cheated” when they awarded Thomas.

Twitter reportedly said that Nance’s tweet contained “hateful conduct.”

Nance, for her part, said TheBlazeThat she stood by her tweet

“Truth is powerful. My twitter account was suspended for making a factually true statement: ‘Another woman displaced by a man’ along with [TheBlaze] headline, ‘Swimmer who tied Lia Thomas in 200-yard freestyle says officials cheated her on podium: ‘We just want Lia to hold the fifth-place trophy.’ I was told by Twitter that this was ‘hateful speech,’ and the only way I could get reinstated onto the platform was to delete my tweet and admit wrong. I won’t do it. I’m not going to pretend that reality is not true. Because the NCAA wants a photo of a man holding the trophy, a young woman athlete was removed from the podium. CWA will fight to protect female athletes and Elon Musk will take over as the platform’s holder. I appreciate Elon Musk’s support for free speech and am grateful. [CWA will]Join him in believing that more voices equals more speech. Hopefully, he will let me out of Twitter jail soon.”

CWA slammed Twitter for the move: “Since when is reporting news considered hateful conduct? @Twitter @PYNance Let’s bring back free speech on social media! @elonmusk?”

Twitter has blocked several accounts for alleged “hateful conduct” recently.

The Babylon Bee’s account was suspended for “hateful conduct” after it referred to Rachel Levine as “man of the year.” Levine is a transgender woman.

“I just received this notice that we’ve been locked out of our account for ‘hateful conduct,’” CEO Seth Dillon tweetedWhen the account was closed.

Twitter: The message read: “You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”

Twitter claimed that the 12-hour suspension will only be in effect if Twitter deletes the tweet. “We’re told our account will be restored in 12 hours, but the countdown won’t begin until we delete the tweet that violates the Twitter Rules,” Dillon said.

The account was not suspended. NewsbustersAccording to reports, at the time the suspension was made The Bee’s account had 1.3 million followers.
