On Monday, Twitter shut down the account for C.J. Pearson, a very outspoken young black conservative Trump supporter. Twitter said it shut down his account after it “determined” that he’s 13 years old and therefore too young to use their platform.
There’s only one problem — Pearson is actually 15 years old.
New technique Left. They’re using the algorithm to get accounts shut down for age restrictions.
@thecjpearson is 15.
He asked me to share this with the world. I’m going to backchannel with Twitter. This is dumb for blue checks. pic.twitter.com/fgY0WbXQen

According to Big League Politics:
Pearson initially reached fame in 2015 on the video-sharing website YouTube, where he shared his conservative, anti-Obama views. Since then he has become a social media powerhouse, with nearly 400,000 likes on Facebook and 135,000 followers on Twitter.
Pearson would regularly share his conservative values, and challenge the views of liberals. Being 15 years old he truly is someone who spoke in terms you wouldn’t imagine somebody his age using. He is highly intelligent, and used his platform on Twitter to put his ideological enemies on blast.
It is very likely that Pearson will get his Twitter account back, as the removal was likely a system error. The question that does arise with his removal is whether the removal was triggered by the actions of leftists who disagree with him. If a large group of his enemies reported him for violating the age requirement, that likely could have resulted in his account’s removal.
Luke Rohlfing gives Twitter more credit than yours truly. As we and others have reported, social media sites like Twitter and Facebook have gone all out to censor those with non-politically correct points of view using any excuse possible.
Response to the news was fairly predictable:
. @thecjpearson just had his Twitter locked. For what? “Being underaged”, they’re claiming. CJ is 15. Twitter’s requirement is 13 🤔. Care to look into this, @jack?
Are liberals scared of a young black conservative speaking his mind?
Please RT to help him get his account back!

#Twitter deleted the account of 15 year old conservative CJ Pearson for "not meeting age restrictions."
You must be 13 years of age to have a Twitter profile.
CJ Pearson is 15.

That’s probably the result of Common Core math…
Maybe, one person suggested, it’s the result of white liberal privilege:
CJ Pearson’s Twitter was locked by White Supremacists. David Hogg’s is still up though. White Liberal Privilege exists!

Pearson responded on Instagram: “@twitter, do the right thing. Give me back my account.”
The hope is that Twitter will realize its mistake and amends. We’re not hopeful, however.
