Twitter recently permanently banned James O’Keefe of Project Veritas for sharing “private information” without consent, according to The Daily Wire.
“The tweet in question arose when asking for comment from Facebook’s VP of Integrity about censorship.”
“Project Veritas is appealing this decision, as no privacy was violated.”
“Twitter also confirmed that O’Keefe’s personal account had been locked temporarily for violating the same policy, and that O’Keefe would be required to remove the violative content before regaining permission to tweet.”
“In an emailed statement to CNN Business, O’Keefe again said it was ‘false’ that the video contained private information and claimed Twitter told the group it could have its account reinstated if it deleted the tweet containing the video.”
Twitter said they had “mistakenly communicated to Project Veritas that there would be a way to restore its account and confirmed that the group’s suspension was permanent and final.”

James O’Keefe later said in a video that Twitter highlighted the apparently rule-violating post from Project Veritas as a video showing the Facebook Vice President of Integrity Guy Rosen being questioned outside his home.
