John Lott Junior, an American economist, political commentator, author, and gun rights advocate is the latest right-of-centre personality banned from Twitter for telling the truth.
The tweet that prompted the ban included a link to Lott's Crime Prevention Research Center website and noted that the New Zealand mosque shooter's manifesto explicitly stated that his goal was to encourage gun control.
When Lott received the block on his account, he was not told exactly why he was banned for the tweet.
Lott appealed the decision, asking for more information. He received another statement from Twitter noting it stood by its original decision, even though the original decision was never given.
