“The account referenced was permanently suspended for violations of the Twitter Rules, specifically our ban evasion policy,” a Twitter spokesperson told the Beast. Banned users cannot create surrogate profiles to dodge their exile.
Stone reportedly described himself in his new profile as an “American Political Icon, Born-again, New York Times Bestselling Author, Trump Loyalist, veteran GOP operative, libertarian conservative, MSM critic.”
He included the countdown numbers “testing 1…2…3” in his post, so he likely didn’t expect it to be online for too long.
He was kicked off Twitter in 2017 after viciously attacking CNN journalists for reporting on Kremlin interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.
Stone told the Mail he wasn’t surprised he was kicked off Twitter again but said he hopes Musk is “true to his word” to open up the platform to those who have been barred.
“I think he should reinstate Donald Trump. I think he should reinstate Alex Jones. I think he should reinstate General Mike Flynn,” Stone said.
