🧵 Dear @TwitterSafety @TwitterSupport @Twitter,

@jimstewartson’s work is important.

It is essential that you restore his account so 45,000 tweets on his timeline are accessible to the @January6thCmte and other researchers.

He broke no Twitter rules. #FreeJimStewartson

This is the 3rd time @jimstewartson was permanently banned in the last two months for not breaking Twitter rules.

The first time was for “hate speech” for saying “Joe Rogan is Steve Bannon’s g*mp” after Joe Rogan blatantly promoted neo-nazi ideology.

The second time @jimstewartson was inauthentically suspended was for “abuse and harassment” after responding to being called a “felon” and a “sexual predator” by an insurrectionist named Tony Shaffer who was finally suspended this week.

The first 2 suspensions were overturned because they broke no Twitter rules. Please see apologies from Twitter.

@jimstewartson is a victim of targeted harassment/abuse of Twitter’s reporting system because his work is critical in exposing fascists and disinformation actors.

The third permanent suspension, which is still ongoing, was for “ban evasion.” This suspension came five days AFTER the ban he was accused of evading was REVERSED.

Read that again.

The best that Jim can figure out is that he logged into a shared account while suspended in order to gather information relevant to his appeal—which was successful! He didn’t tweet/evade anything. He sent the information directly to @TwitterSafety to show who was responsible.

Jim has been a warrior in the fight to oppose the fascist threat that is encroaching on all of us.

For 18 months, he has been out in front of the story and warning people at every step of the way.

As just one example of what we are losing. Jim was in the middle of ongoing work directly relevant to the @January6thCmte and to the @TheJusticeDept investigations relating to Stewart Rhodes, the Oathkeepers and their sources of funding.

And Jim also made this critical discovery about Mike Flynn’s weaponization of Christianity, which is widely referenced and now gone.

Jim works with dozens of hard-working researchers in the ongoing exposure of fascists and disinformation actors like @davetroy @gal_suburban @visionsurreal @the_peetape @DempseyTwo @ClearingTheFog @kelly2277 @PiperK and so many others.

Jim is also honored to be followed and retweeted by many influential voices in the battle to save democracy such as @JoyAnnReid @kathygriffin @sarahkendzior @jennycohn1 @MalcolmNance @MeidasTouch

Jim earned his 60k followers and 30M impressions / month through hard work and providing valuable information.

After his second permanent suspension was reversed, Jim tweeted this to @TwitterSafety @TwitterSupport asking for their help. Jim has sacrificed a lot to do this work. Having his voice taken away is harmful not only to him but to others who rely on him.

See this last thread Jim wrote before his voice was silenced. Everyone who knows Jim has seen the vile, defamatory attacks on his character and the way @Twitter is weaponized to tear people down. None of the accusations being spread by a small group of trolls are true. NONE.

Friends, we are in a war for democracy, and we need people like Jim on the field.

Please retweet this thread so that @TwitterSafety @TwitterSupport @Twitter is sure to see it.

We need him back. #FreeJimStewartson 🇺🇸💙

15/ END.

Jim invites his Twitter followers to join him on substack for now. jimstewartson.substack.com
PS: @Twitter @TwitterSafety @TwitterSupport
Here are the instructions you put on the feed of Jim’s suspended account. It says he can’t tweet, RT, like, or create new accounts. He followed the rules. He logged into an existing account to get info to send to you.
PSS. “I did not break the Twitter rules.”-Jim Stewartson

Please follow Jim at Substack. Thx!

Republicans aligned with Putin are committing active measures against the United States.
That’s the fkin headline. Thank you @jonathanrosy and friends for helping me find the words.

Sian and I really hit on a core truth: because people like Jim Stewartson and his friends warned the anti-fascists to stay away on January 6, MAGA extremists beat up on cops, therefore revealing the depths of their brainwashing stupor.

My DMs are filling up with news of pro-democracy truth activists, independent investigative journalists, and OSINT researchers being suspended + permanently banned from Twitter.

This is the day you need to swap emails and numbers with everyone you can and download your archives.
And when they come for me, which is inevitable at this point, I will be easy to find. Two of my RadPod cohosts are gone, but 300 people watched our two-hour show since yesterday.

As January 6 nears, I think we should acknowledge that lying is the message. That since 2016, the GOP has been preemptively crying about election fraud. GOP governor candidates cry fraud before results are in.

It’s not about facts; it’s about normalizing lies to confuse reality.
FACT: Far-right extremists, including Trump adviser and convicted felon Roger Stone, first popularized “Stop the Steal”, which dates back to the 2016 election and serves primarily to dispute Democratic votes in multiracial areas.-@MichaelEHayden @splcenter
FACT: Glenn Youngkin’s Campaign Surrogates Are Already Crying Fraud Ahead of Virginia’s Gubernatorial Election—So Is Trump: The Republican can’t disentangle himself from election fraud conspiracy theories that helped win him the nomination.
