Twitter has locked down the accounts of James O’Keefe and Project Veritas over reporting yesterday on Facebook’s Vice President that they can freeze hate speech comments:
JUST IN – Twitter has locked down the accounts of James O’Keefe and Project Veritas for reporting on Facebook VP Guy Rosen and his statements that Facebook "freezes" comments in places that algorithms think there "may be" hate speech (via Project Veritas on Telegram)

Below is the reasoning Twitter gave James O’Keefe for the ban: “publishing private information”

Here’s the video that I believe Twitter is using to justify their block:
I’m guessing they are referring to his house number and house in the video? But they don’t disclose his street, city, or even state.
James O’Keefe said this on Telegram: “Twitter has locked our accounts for reporting on Facebook.Asking people questions using a microphone and camera. 2+2=5, just like Orwell said.”
You know Twitter has been looking for an excuse to block James O’Keefe for a long time. This is very weak justification if you ask me.
UPDATE: Twitter has now permanently suspended Project Veritas:
