Twitter takes action against The Christian Post over tweet calling a man a man

Twitter has taken action against The Christian Post’s account in response to a tweet that said Rachel Levine, a trans-identified Biden official, is a man.


In an alert emailed to CP on Sunday, the social media giant notified the Christian news publication that the tweet violated its policy against what it deems as “hateful conduct” by stating a biological fact and has “temporarily limited some” features of the account, including the ability to post new articles.

Other limitations include being unable to like, follow or retweet posts. Twitter also told CP that the restrictions could be lifted 12 hours after deleting the tweet about Levine, the assistant secretary for health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. 

CP posted the news article titled, “USA Today names Rachel Levine among its ‘Women of the Year’” on its social media accounts last Tuesday. A trans-identified member of the Biden administration, Levine was born male and went by his birth name of Richard before deciding to self-identify as a woman. 

On Friday, Twitter emailed CP a notification explaining that CP’s account had been “flagged for possible violations of Twitter’s hateful conduct policy” and possibly violating France’s LCEN law on internet content.
