Twitter censors suspended a woman for labeling the Muslim Brotherhood a “terrorist organization” — despite the fact that members of Congress in the United States, as well as President Donald Trump, are considering labeling the group just that.
Twitter has really outdone itself this time with the ridiculous censorship, yes?
Once again, social media censors raise their far leftist, Muslim apologist heads.
More from Robert Spencer with Jihad Watch:
The Muslim Brotherhood is behind numerous attacks on Christians in Egypt. Hamas calls itself the Muslim Brotherhood for Palestine. Twitter, as has been made abundantly clear, is in the tank for the Left and its jihadist allies. The problem is that Twitter and the other social media giants have a monopoly on the means of communication. If that doesn’t change soon, before too long it will be possible to publish only material that accords with the far-Left perspective, and America will be finished as a free society. No society is free in which there is no freedom of speech, and in which opinions are proscribed.
- Woman Suspended on Twitter for Calling the Muslim Brotherhood a ‘Terrorist Organization,’” Al Bawaba, September 17, 2018 (thanks to Maged):
A Twitter user claimed a friend’s account got temporarily suspended by Twitter after calling the Muslim Brotherhood “terrorists.”
The tweet had a screenshot for the suspended account. It contained a Twitter message that reads: “We’ve temporarily limited some of your account features” for violating the rules against “hateful content”.
A friend of mine has her account locked for calling the Muslim Brotherhood “terrorists”.
Note: They were sued internationally for burning 42 churches in Egypt & are deemed terrorists by several countries. What’s up twitter? pic.twitter.com/JIIYLgNgGa

Many users were skeptical of what could be a fake message, whereas other backed the argument and believed it to be part of a wider trend.
Twitter is contemptible; I've called them out, written, phoned….I stand in solidarity with you and your friend, and all conservatives (I've been affected too)–and I followed you. Thanks

Some users went to attribute it to the fact that a large stake of Twitter is owned by Saudis. It was owned by billionaire Alwaleed bin Talal before his detention by the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, however, it is not clear if he still owns it or he gave it up to the Crown Prince [as part of the deal he had to be freed]….
