A Twitter spokesperson tells TheWrap that although they can not comment on individual accounts, their police on "abusive behavior" includes "behavior that harasses". Friday night he went on an unhinged rant against journalists like CNN's Don Lemon, the New York Times' Charles Blow, and ABC News's Jake Tapper, calling many of them "human excrement". Yiannopoulos was seen as an instigator of disparaging tweets directed at comedian Leslie Jones.
The Republican strategist has also been an aide to President Richard Nixon in the 1970. Word came down that Robert Mueller had secured grand jury indictments in his Trump-Russia collusion investigation and that someone could be in custody by Monday.
What did Stone do on Twitter that was so bad?
Stone's outburst came just as sources confirmed Special counsel Robert Mueller has filed his first charges in the investigation into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to swing the 2016 election.
But Stone, a former Trump campaign adviser and longtime GOP operative, said that he has experienced harassment on the social media site, and that Twitter's decision to suspend his account seemed meant to "silence conservative voices".
Gizmodo has reached out to Twitter for independent confirmation that Stone's ban from the platform is permanent.
One of the people he targeted on Saturday, CNN contributor Ana Navarro, said she did not sympathise with Mr Stone over his suspension.
Stone's tweets, which have been archived by Deadline, referred to Lemon an "ignorant lying covksucker" and saying Lemon "must be confronted, humiliated, mocked and punished".
"I have been informed that I have been suspended for 3 hours and 12 minutes".
"Twitter wants to avoid being regulated like a utility", he told the publication.
