Twitter bans, then restores, Beto O’Rourke parody account
Twitter banned an account that was parodying former House Representative and potential presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke.
The parodist named @BetosFakeBlog took posts from O’Rourke’s original blog and made parodies of them. Each tweet took situations O’Rourke had written about and altered them for satiric effect.
A Twitter user tweeted, “So the Beto parody blog gets banned but @LouisFarrakhan’s account is still up, even after posting a video calling Jewish people termites.”
Twitter restored the Beto parody account about a day later.
