Roger Stone Has Been Permanently Banned From Twitter

Roger Stone has complete meltdown on Twitter after CNN reports Mueller has secured an indictment

Former Trump adviser Roger Stone reacted to CNN's then-exclusive news of imminent charges in the Mueller investigation with a string of crude, obscenity-filled, personal and vaguely threatening tweets against the network's anchors and contributors Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, Ana Navarro, Bill Kristol, Carl Bernstein and Charles Blow.

".@donlemon stop lying about about the Clinton's and Uranium you ignorant lying covksucker!"

Stone told CBS news that he'd violated the site's terms of service with the tweetstorm. Responding to reports that his account was banned for good, Stone also said that he was told by Twitter that his suspension was supposed to last "three hours and 22 minutes", but the account has been dark all night and at time of publication, is still suspended. Twitter considers that a clearer violation of its policies than simply criticizing an individual by name.


Stone condemned Twitter following the ban, telling Politico that "the battle against free speech has just begun" and that he will take legal action against Twitter.

One factor in this case may have been that Stone repeatedly targeted Lemon using his Twitter handle, so that the harassment would show up in Lemon's notifications.

Sunday morning, Stone told Politico that his suspension was "part and parcel of the systematic effort by the tech left to censor and silence conservative voices", and that he had made a decision to pursue legal action against Twitter after consulting legal counsel. But he's been close to Trump since at least 2000, when Trump first toyed with the idea of running for President. Stone has a tattoo of Richard Nixon's face on his back, and Stone has frequently embraced his own reputation as a political dirty trickster. His account on Twitter was swiftly suspended. One is affiliated with his blog Stone Cold Truth, and another is related to the Netflix documentary about him.
