On Sunday, Mike Davis, the founder of the Internet Accountability Project (IAP), had his Twitter account suspended for merely defending a post comparing CNN anchor Brian Stelter to "the Gimp" from the movie "Pulp Fiction".

The Twitter platform had previously suspended the account of Will Upton, a former staffer with the Trump administration, for simply tweeting, "Fun fact… [Brian Stelter] is The Gimp from Pulp Fiction."

According to the Federalist, and ironically enough, Upton's suspension was successfully appealed, and the post was restored to its former glory, as "comparing a public figure to a fictional movie character does not violate their terms of service."

Nonetheless, Twitter went ahead and suspended Davis's account for the following tweet:

Twitter has since lifted the suspension on Davis as of early Monday afternoon. However, this is not the first time this year even that Twitter has specifically targeted Davis, or other prominent figures, incorrectly.

Back in Jan. 2021, a very similar incident happened, where Davis was summarily suspended from the platform for writing something that doesn't go against Twitter's TOS on any level:

"Federal, state, and local law enforcement must *never* tolerate *any* political violence. Prosecute *all* of them — not just based upon their political views. … Lock ’em up," wrote Davis in Jan. 2021.

"We have systems that find and remove multiple automated spam accounts in bulk, and yours was flagged as spam by mistake," wrote Twitter regarding the Jan. incident, claiming that it was a malfunction of its spam filter.
