Twitter Says It Reversed Its ‘Incorrect’ Decision To Lock Rep. Lauren Boebert Account

Via Business Insider:

Twitter has reversed its decision to lock Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert’s account, a Twitter spokesperson confirmed to Insider. Boebert posted on Instagram Wednesday a screenshotof a Twitter alert that her account has been restricted for 6 days over policy violations.

In a statement to Insider, the spokesperson said, “In this instance, our teams took the incorrect enforcement action. The Tweet in question is now labeled in accordance with our Civic Integrity Policy. The Tweet will not be required to be removed and the account will not be temporarily locked.” The spokesperson also confirmed that Twitter did initially lock her account and has since unlocked it.

The spokesperson declined to clarify which tweet of Boebert’s prompted Twitter to take action against her account. They also refused to clarify which tweet is now labeled in accordance with the firm’s Civic Integrity Policy, though a tweet of Boebert’s January 9 currently has an election misinformation warning banner.

On Wednesday afternoon, Boebert tweeted that Twitter shut her account down without explanation before the ban was lifted.

The congresswoman drew criticism for tweeting the location of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi during the siege on the US Capitol last week, angering many who have since begun calling for her resignation. They say her posts put Pelosi’s life at risk since they could have made it easier for the pro-Trump mob to locate her.

In response to this criticism, Boebert said, “they accuse me of live-tweeting the Speaker’s presence after she had been safely removed from the Capitol, as if I was revealing some big secret, when in fact this removal was also being broadcast on TV,” according to NBC News.

She also tweeted earlier on January 6, before the insurrectionists stormed the Capitol, that “Today is 1776,” the year that the United States of America became an independent nation. Lawmakers were scheduled to certify the 2020 presidential election results on January 6, and Congress has since confirmed that President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn in on January 20.

Boebert is one of a handful of GOP lawmakers that scoffed at new security measures, such as metal detectors, that have been introduced at the Capitol in light of last week’s insurrection on Wednesday. She reportedly refused to walk through the metal detector and refused to allow Capitol police to search through her bag. 

Boebert, as well as Georgia Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene, has entertained the unfounded conspiracy theory QAnon, whose supporters believe President Trump is the world’s savior against a deep-state cabal of Democratic Satanists and child sex traffickers.

Following the siege on the US Capitol, reports have surfaced detailing how far-right Trump supporters organized on Facebook, Twitter, and elsewhere online in the weeks leading up to the attack. The date “January 6” and “Independence Day” were referenced multiple times in these pockets of the internet.

What Twitter says is an action against Boebert comes after the company permanently de-platformed Trump following his handling of the Capitol siege last week. While his supporters breached the federal building, Trump took to his online accounts to further spout baseless claims of election fraud.
