Twitter and big tech will keep working to silence conservatives until they are stopped. Recently, Twitter suddenly locked the account for Marina Medvin, an attorney who happens to be defending January 6th protestors.
Medvin was notified that her account had been locked but wasn’t given a chance to appeal or even know what exactly triggered the lockdown, all Twitter would reveal was that the attorney violated its rules.

The Post Millennial reports:
“We have determined that you have violated the Twitter Rules, so you’ll need to wait some time before using Twitter again.” The message stated that Medvin might “need to complete some additional tasks to resume using Twitter.”
“There is no suitable substitute for Twitter,” Medvin told The Post Millennial. “All of the conservative spin-off apps are echo chambers. That’s not fun, not my cup of tea. Without media engagement and without opposing viewpoints, the apps are simply uninteresting. That means that we need to keep fighting to keep Twitter open to all.”
Prior to the sudden ban, Medvin tweeted about the Texas hostage situation. The man who took hostages during Sabbath services at gunpoint is suspected to have been an Islamic jihadist, who was advocating for the release of Aafia Siddiqui, who has been called “Lady al Qaeda” and is serving time in a Texas prison.
Medvin fired back at Daily Beast reporter Wajahat Ali who wrote on Twitter that “You’re about to hear some ugly & vicious Islamophobia & anti-Muslim bigotry this weekend from elected officials, commentators and even mainstream media. Hope I’m wrong. People will use it to divide Jewish and Muslim communities for their political agenda. Don’t fall for it.”
Medvin quickly replied, “When a Muslim takes Jews hostage in a synagogue and threatens ti kill them, just remember folks, the true victims are the Muslims.”
This wasn’t Medvin’s first Twitter ban. She was also banned in August 2020 for saying that then candidate Joe Biden, who is Catholic and sued nuns over their unwillingness to provide contraception as part of their health plans, was a “creep.”
Twitter has since reinstated her account and claimed the account lock was an “error” but the account remain inaccessible.
