Twitter tries to suspend pro-life advertisements

SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter removed three pro-life ads from the organization Human Coalition from its site but reversed the decision after a conservative news media outlet requested information.

Twitter reportedly told Human Coalition by email that they were suspended from running any advertisements on Twitter because of “inappropriate” content. The ads highlighted the humanity of the preborn and noted the prevalence of Planned Parenthood clinics in African-American communities.

The Daily Caller contacted Twitter to ask about the suspension. Within two hours Twitter contacted Human Coalition to tell them the suspension on the organization’s ads had been lifted and their tweets were approved.

In the past Twitter has attempted to pull ads critical of Planned Parenthood but has relented in response to charges that the restrictions equate to censorship. (TAB)
