In an email explaining their decision, Twitter wrote “You may not register or create fake and misleading accounts or use multiple accounts to manipulate Twitter conversations.”
“This account will not be reinstated,” they added.
O’Keefe has announced he is going to sue.
“I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts.’” O’Keefe wrote in a statement to The Federalist. “This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay. Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me. The complaint will be filed Monday.”
Just days earlier Project Veritas had released a video about CNN.
