Republican Senate candidate and retired Army Capt. Sam Brown is firing again at Twitter after he awoke Monday morning to see that his account was “permanently suspended,” which Twitter has since acknowledged was an error.
“Big Tech is waging an all-out attack on conservative voices — using unequally applied ‘rules’ to censor or suspend anyone they disagree with,” Brown informed Fox News in an unique assertion. “This summer, they censored my tweets as ‘potentially sensitive content.’ This morning, they suspended my account without warning or cause.”
Brown is working within the Republican major in Nevada hoping to unseat Democratic incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto in 2022.

The candidate filed an attraction to Twitter’s determination with out being informed what tweets prompted such punishment. Twitter responded with an computerized electronic mail informing him his attraction request was acquired. His account was suspended for a number of hours.
“Big Tech knows their days of one-sided censorship and divisive influence are numbered with conservative voices like me in the Senate,” Brown mentioned. “I will not back down from this fight – Twitter has messed with the wrong soldier.”
Fox News reached out to Twitter amid Brown’s suspension, which was lifted lower than two hours later.
“We’re writing to let you know that we’ve unsuspended your account,” Twitter informed Brown in an electronic mail obtained by Fox News. “We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope to see you back on Twitter soon.”
Twitter added, “A little back background: we have systems that find and remove multiple automated spam accounts in bulk, and yours was flagged as spam by mistake. Please note that it make take an hour or so for your follower and following numbers to return to normal.”
ARMY VETERAN, GOP SENATE CANDIDATE, ACCUSES TWITTER OF FLAGGING JULY 4 POST OF HIS SALUTE IN UNIFORM
“As someone who has been targeted multiple times by Twitter’s censorship regime, this issue is now personal to me: it’s clear that decisive action must be taken immediately to rein in Big Tech and the partisan elites who run them,” Brown informed Fox News.
Twitter didn’t reply to Fox News’ a number of requests for remark.
Brown’s contentious interactions with Twitter started in July when he accused the platform of flagging his Fourth of July tweet of him saluting in uniform as “potentially sensitive content.”
The candidate slammed Twitter, suggesting his tweet was marked as “potentially sensitive” due to his face, which was severely burned from an IED explosion throughout his 2008 deployment to Afghanistan. His marketing campaign launch video shared on Wednesday was equally hit with a warning label.
A spokesperson for Twitter on the time pushed again on the censorship allegation, telling Fox News such warnings may be enabled or disabled based mostly on the person person’s account settings.
