The Defiant Ls account holder says Twitter has barred them for “ban evasion”

A Twitter account called ‘Defiant Ls’ was temporarily suspended from the platform on Tuesday evening, with many pundits theorizing that the poster’s focus on pointing out liberal hypocrisy was the reason behind the ban.

By Wednesday afternoon, the account announced to its followers that it has been un-suspended by the platform after being barred for “ban evasion.”

“The word currently is ‘ban evasion’ though I’ve never had an account suspended so I’ve never had a ban to evade. Regardless, I’ve appealed the suspension and will keep everyone updated,” a message from the account holder shared by Post Millennial read, following the original suspension.

Defiant Ls can also be found on Instagram and Gettr, a Twitter alternative popular among conservatives. Before the suspension, the Defiant Ls account had more than 350,000 followers. They have lost these followers, with the account now sporting over 26,000 followers since its return and counting.

One of the last tweets posted to the account was a pair of headlines – one a critique of Kentucky’s concealed carry law and its Republican supporters, and the second, dated three years later, was about the first story’s author, Quintez Brown, being suspected in the shooting of a Kentucky mayoral candidate. The tweets from the account often posted two separate messages from or about a person, the latter typically contradicting the first.

Many Twitter users posted their objections to the suspension and theorized on the tweet that sparked it, with recent messages from the account having targeted a wide range of public figures from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“Is pointing out liberal hypocrisy a violation of @twitter rules?” Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) tweeted, sharing a screenshot of one of Defiant Ls tweets, something other users also did to protest the suspension.
