Twitchy reports that a fella named Jesse Kelly has been permanently banned from Twitter. No explanation has been given.

Just talked to Jesse Kelly about his @Twitter account being suspended/deleted.
He has no idea what happened, he says he never received any messages from Twitter notifying him of any kind of violation of the platform's terms of service.

Twitter has simply decided that it's going to purge users who are prominent on the right if they fail to adhere to the "tame conservative" National Review stylebook.
I understood Milo. Understood Loomer. Jesse Kelly did not break any rules.

Instapundit says this is the final straw, and has deactivated his Twitter account in protest.
Although Twitchy doesn’t know what the reason for the ban is, they cite a lot of replies from lefties about a tweet concerning the confederacy. A friend passes along the tweet. Is this tweet why he was banned?

You don’t have to agree with that opinion to believe that it doesn’t justify a permanent ban from Twitter.
It’s almost like there’s actually something to conservatives’ complaints about a bias on the part of the lefties who run the thing.
