“Back on the net after Twitter blocked me for about 20 hours. Censorship of Twitter should anger all Americans. Twitter not only prevented me from sharing messages, it also prevented you from knowing the truth, “wrote the acting CBP director.
The original message shared Wednesday that led to Twitter blocking the account read: “We continue to build a new wall every day. Every mile helps us prevent gang members, sexual predators and drugs enter the country. It’s a fact, the walls work. “
The digital publication The Federalist, got screenshots of Morgan’s account in which Twitter indicates that it has been blocked by violate their community regulations.
Specifically, the social network alleges that this promoted violence, threatened or harassed others “on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious illness.”
In another response after his account was reactivated, Morgan accused Twitter of being “beside itself” in its bias against the Administration led by Donald Trump, of practicing a “blatant censorship” and to attack freedom of expression.
