Reports: Conservative street artist Sabo banned from Twitter, no reason given

On Friday, Breitbart.com reported that the popular conservative street artist Sabo was banned from Twitter with no explanation.  According to the report the artist, who ran the @UnsavoryAgents account, was banned from the site on Friday.

“Was not told why or for how long. I just saw I no longer have my 32,000 followers and I’m no longer following anybody,” the artist told Breitbart Tech in an email. “They want nothing less than to completely destroy us on the Right.”

Breitbart added:

Sabo has frequently criticized the power that large tech companies and social networks, and this month the street artist plastered New York City with posters targeting Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. He also mocked Zuckerberg’s potential political aspirations last year.

Last year, Sabo also posted anti-Google advertisements outside of the company’s offices in Los Angeles.

The street artist has also previously targeted Hillary ClintonHarvey Weinsteinthe Oscarsthe Golden Globes, anti-Trump celebrities, and Kim Jong-Un.

Twitter users were outraged by the move:



That’s easy — apparently anyone whose political views fall to the right of Josef Stalin…


Good question.  Several members of Congress have confronted Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, but perhaps Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey should spend a day or two in Washington explaining himself.

One person compared Dorsey to Hitler:



Except for perhaps using the Internet while conservative, which apparently is double-plus ungood in the eyes of Twitter.


Is that what this is all about?

As of this writing, the account is still down with a notification that it has been suspended.

Exit question: Did Dorsey play a direct role in this ban?
