BABYLON BEE CEO WON’T ‘BEND THE KNEE’ TO TWITTER, BUT DOESN’T THINK CONSERVATIVES SHOULD LEAVE PLATFORM

The account, which has greater than 600,000 followers, mainly focuses on mocking liberal posts on TikTok and other sites. 

The platform’s “hateful conduct” policy says, “You might not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the premise of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease,” Dillon noted

Twitter suspended the Babylon Bee’s account last month for violating the platform’s “hateful conduct” rules over a joke naming Biden administration official Dr. Rachel Levine, who’s a transgender woman, the satire site’s “Man of the 12 months” for 2022.

Libs of Tik Tok” expressed concerns over censorship late last month, pinning a post on March 28 that said, “It’s a matter of time before I get suspended. Never know which post might be my last. If you should make certain you retain receiving my content, go to the link under my bio and join for my email list.” 

The reported suspension comes as other conservatives have complained about censorship on the platform.
