IAP Statement: Twitter Again Suspends Mike Davis For Innocuous Tweet Amid Antitrust Fight

June 17, 2021

WASHINGTON—As Big Tech faces a bipartisan antitrust battle in Congress, Twitter today suspended for the third time Mike Davis, founder and president of the Internet Accountability Project, for an innocuous five-day-old tweet in which he called out President Biden’s lawless border policies.

“This is the third time Twitter has wrongly suspended me for a completely innocuous tweet. It’s no coincidence Big Tech is attempting to silence one of their biggest critics as they work to kill bipartisan legislation to rein in their monopoly power. Twitter’s censors are completely shameless and will stop at nothing to quell political opposition to their abusive and anticompetitive practices. Twitter will surely back down yet again, just as they did before after facing political backlash, and call this suspension a ‘mistake.’ This is no mistake. It’s my third baseless suspension in six months. That’s not a ‘mistake,’ that’s a targeted campaign to silence their foes. This is more evidence of Big Tech’s unlimited power to control political debate in this country. They must be cut down to size. Antitrust now.”

IAP is a nonprofit conservative advocacy group that holds Big Tech accountable for engaging in egregious business practices like snooping, spying, political bias against conservatives, employee abuses and anticompetitive conduct. Davis previously served as Chief Counsel for Nominations to Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary and led the Senate confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and a record number of circuit court judges.
