BREAKING: Journalist Raheem Kassam suspended by Twitter for violating 'hacked materials' policy

"Never have I posted 'hacked material' and I consider the allegation libellous at a minimum, designed explicitly to cause harm," Kassam told The Post Millennial.

The National Pulse editor-in-chief Raheem J. Kassam was locked out of Twitter after a tweet of his Tuesday "violated" the platform's "hacked materials" policy.

"Fox News internal email appears to suggest their senior correspondent thinks the KGB still exists," Kassam tweeted Tuesday morning, adding the facepalm emoji.

Kassam's tweet displayed Fox News correspondent Gillian Turner's leaked email, titled "URGENT: Zelensky's Traceability." She wrote: "Even if a phone is encrypted, the KGB can still track both cell phones and landlines, we are told."

Twitter notified Kassam that the tweet was in violation of the Big Tech site's "Distribution of hacked materials" policy. "We don't permit the use of our services to directly distribute content obtained through hacking that contains private information, may put people in physical harm or danger, or contains trade secrets," the Twitter notification reads, prompting Kassam to delete the tweet.

"By clicking Delete, you acknowledge that your tweet violated the Twitter rules," the message from Twitter instructs Kassam, also advising: "If you think we've made a mistake, submit an appeal to us. Please note that should you do so, your account will remain locked while we review your appeal."

Kassam's account features are placed under temporary restrictions for the next 12 hours following the so-called violation. Kassam is limited to sending direct messages (DMs) to Twitter followers while he remains in Twitter jail.

After the penalty window, Kassam's account will be restored to full functionality. The countdown begins after Kassam deletes the offending tweet.

Kassam took to pro-free speech alternative GETTR to air his grievances.

"Currently 'suspended' from Twitter for posting 'hacked material' which is actually a primary source email sent to me by a Fox News insider. Remember, doxxing Trucker supporters didn't get people suspended. But posting Fox News emails does? Hmmm," Kassam posted mid-Tuesday afternoon on GETTR.

Donors who contributed to the Freedom Convoy fundraiser on Christian crowdfunding site GiveSendGo were doxed by left-wing activists.

Mainstream media followed suit with the Washington Post seeking to dox and shame donors.

The Post Millennial reached out to Kassam, who said "Never have I posted 'hacked material' and I consider the allegation libellous at a minimum, designed explicitly to cause harm. But I do note that when people were doxxing Canadian truckers using actual hacked material, Twitter took no action. Perhaps more critically, this suspension was enacted because we recently exposed a number of pro-war propaganda falsehoods. We'll see, because we will continue to press this until we get real answers."
