Congressman Gets Twitter Account Back After Deleting Post


Congressman Jim Banks is back on Twitter after he deleted a tweet that went against the platform’s Terms of Service.

On October 19, Banks tweeted about Dr. Rachel Levine, a transgender woman who recently became the first transgender four-star officer in the U.S. uniformed service.

“The title of first female four-star officer gets taken by a man,” he tweeted. On October 23, Twitter removed the tweet for violating a rule against “targeted misgendering.”

Banks deleted the tweet to gain access to his account but said he stands by what he said.

“Twitter provides a crucial platform for elected officials to communicate with voters, which is part of what makes Twitter’s biased and arbitrary censorship so dangerous,” he said. “Fighting the left’s censorship will remain a priority of mine for as long as I’m in Congress.”

Conservatives are under attack. Contact your representatives and demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on “hate speech” and equal footing for conservatives. If you have been censored, contact us at the Media Research Center contact form, and help us hold Big Tech accountable.
