Twitter Temporarily Suspended Unplanned Movie Account On Opening Weekend
Mary Margaret Olohan | Reporter
“Unplanned,” a film on a former abortion clinic director who became pro-life, opened in theaters Friday, but Twitter temporarily suspended the movies account Saturday, causing pro-lifers to question its reasoning.
Twitter suspended the account Saturday morning and reinstated it later in the day.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to the social media platform for comment and learned a different account violated Twitter rules, causing the system to suspend related accounts, according to Twitter. When Twitter took a second look, it decided the “Unplanned” account should not be suspended and reinstated it.
Twitter did not specify what other related account had caused this.

This is unacceptable, @jack.

Live Action founder Lila Rose suggested her group and “Unplanned” face censorship because of their pro-life views.
“Twitter just suspended @UnplannedMovie during the weekend of its theatrical release.@jack why are they suspended?” Rose tweeted. “Youve banned both my & @LiveAction account from all promotions simply bc were pro-life. Have you banned this account because it challenges your pro-abortion bias?”
