Twitter suspends humanitarian account for publishing photos of war in Yemen
Twitter has today (December 4) suspended the account of OpDesanitize following the humanitarian organization’s publishing of graphic photographs of the war in Yemen.
Website The Gateway Pundit quotes Walker Bragman, a journalist associated with OpDesanitize, who brought to light the organization’s suspension. Bragman claims that the suspension came after a tweet was sent criticizing the Center for American Progress’ connection to the UAE.
On Tuesday, the Senate will be voting on S.J. Res. 54, which would end U.S. support for the war in Yemen.
Writing for The Gateway Pundit, Cassandra Fairbanks criticizes the decision of Twitter to deplatform OpDesanitize, arguing:
Without facing the horrors we contribute to with our foreign policy, how can we possibly make decisions at the ballot box? Censorship of these images, and the subsequent discussions, is election meddling of the highest order.
