Twitter has permanently banned Roger Stone from Twitter - here's why

Roger Stone Tweets Obscenities, Insults At CNN Anchors: Advises “Severe Punishment”

By any measure, though, several of Stone's tweets violated Twitter's standards of conduct, which bar "hateful conduct", "harassment" and messages that promote violence.

He added that Lemon "must be confronted, humiliated, mocked and punished".

(Asked who Stone believes is indicted, he mockingly suggested: "Manafort's driver for double parking"; Stone, who's already testified before congress regarding potential Russian Federation collusion, is a longtime friend and former business partner of Manafort's.) A spokesperson for Twitter directed BuzzFeed to its terms of service by way of explanation for the decision.

In another tweet, Stone told Lemon to "stop lying about the Clinton's and Uranium you ignorant lying covkscucker".

Stone seemed to have crossed the line with a Friday night rant aimed at two journalists - CNN anchor Don Lemon and New York Times columnist Charles Blow - who have been sharply critical of President Donald Trump. Dumber than dog s***'.

Word came down that Robert Mueller had secured grand jury indictments in his Trump-Russia collusion investigation and that someone could be in custody by Monday.

Roger Stone plans to file an antitrust lawsuit against Twitter.

Bears lose Zach Miller to gruesome leg injury on negated touchdown
On one play in the game Miller hauled in a long touchdown pass from Trubisky but was unable to get back up. Referee Carl Cheffers told a pool reporter that Miller did not complete "the process of the catch".

In the testimony, Stone also denied any direct communications with Assange, which he had alluded to in the past.

Sources told BuzzFeed News the suspension is permanent.

But on Sunday, the account remained suspended.

To Stone, what he said to earn suspension is no different from average trolling on the platform. "While I am uncertain why, sometimes the stark truth offends some people". Responding to reports that his account was banned for good, Stone also said that he was told by Twitter that his suspension was supposed to last "three hours and 22 minutes", but the account has been dark all night and at time of publication, is still suspended.

In the media following his removal, Stone complained about being banned while users who he claims have threatened him, his family, and his little dogs, too, continue to tweet freely.

Roger Stone has been taken off Twitter.
