The insanity of the media blackout on my win over Twitter
Finally someone wrote about it. Not in a major media outlet, of course. In a Substack. Still, I'm glad to see at least ONE other journalist has taken note.
An except from the Substack piece, from Rav Arora, a freelancer (he briefly explains his own story in it):
Vaccines may be an untouchable third rail, but a journalist’s free speech suppressed by social media suppressed is certainly newsworthy.
Or so I thought.
In July of last year, I pitched a story on Alex’s return to Twitter after his major settlement with Twitter following his 10-month ban. Alex’s official statement strikingly read, “The parties have come to a mutually acceptable resolution. I have been reinstated. Twitter has acknowledged that my tweets should have not led to my suspension at that time.”
Twitter essentially admitted the cause of his suspension — making “demonstrably false or misleading” claims that could “cause serious harm” — was unjust. I naively thought Berenson v Twitter would be an instantly viral story across mainstream media outlets, but I was fooled again…
The piece ends on a particularly sweet note. I’m not going to spoil it for you - read it for yourself here:
