    GOP Candidate Suspended on Twitter; Big Change Happens 45 Minutes After Musk Gets Involved

    Published on

    Before Elon Musk stormed Twitter’s headquarters as its new owner, several conservative Twitter users, especially Republican candidates, frequently and legitimately complained that their accounts appeared to be particularly susceptible to censoring activities just prior to an election, with no real recourse viable.

    That was most recently demonstrated by Republican Mark Finchem, a candidate for Arizona secretary of state, whose Twitter account was recently suspended and quickly restored with a little assistance from his friends and Twitter’s new master.

    Finchem begged his fans to launch a “pressure campaign” on Twitter to gain Musk’s attention and help him have his account unblocked in a desperate email to them on Monday, presumably counting on Musk keeping his word that Twitter will defend true freedom of speech.

    “Twitter has blocked my account from speaking truth with one week left until the election. They are trying to put their thumb on the scales of this election. Tag Elon Musk and tell him to unban me right now. I am the Secretary of State nominee in a swing state running against the criminal Soros-funded candidate,” The Washington Examiner quoted portions of Finchem’s email.

    Finchem’s email and none of the reporting did not make it clear why he had been suspended from the platform.

    After receiving Finchem’s email, Jenna Ellis, a prominent conservative on Twitter and former attorney for President Donald Trump, posted a screenshot of it right away. In her tweet, Ellis included Musk and said that it wasn’t fair to suspend candidates a week before an election.

    In less than an hour, Musk stunned everyone watching the drama play out when he replied with a message indicating that he would look into the situation.

    Finchem’s Twitter account was restored in about 45 minutes. One such request might require days or weeks to be considered before Musk took charge. Finchem, Ellis, and a large number of other people commended Musk for acting quickly and ending the suspension.

    The Arizona Republican also publicly thanked Kari Lake, another Republican running for governor in Arizona, for getting engaged in helping him fix the problem with his account.

    “We are back! Thank you @elonmusk for stopping the commie who suspended me from Twitter a week before the election. Twitter is much better with you at the helm. Thank you
    @MediaRightNews1 @JennaEllisEsq @KariLake @Brick_Suit & others for spreading the word! #AZSOS,” Finchem tweeted.

    In one of his first tweets following his return, Finchem also noted that Musk had updated his Twitter bio from “Chief Twit” to “Twitter Complaint Hotline Operator,” demonstrating once more how important Musk’s sense of humor is to his management approach.

    Many have speculated on whether former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account, which was banned after the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion, will be reinstated by Musk. Trump has indicated that he’s likely to stick with his own social media platform, Truth Social, but wished Musk good luck in his venture, Fox Business reported.

    On Friday, Musk announced that Twitter would form a “content moderation council” that he says will make major decisions on how the platform deals with situations like Trump’s account. CONTINUE READING…
