Twitter users aligned with Anonymous and other online collectives announced the suspension just shy of 12 noon EST on Wednesday, December 19. Minutes later, another account affiliated with the group reported that YourAnonNews was suspended for allegedly sharing links to personal information.
“You may not publish or post other people's private and confidential information,” the @Anon_Central Twitter account says they were told by the social network.
After over an hour, the YourAnonNews account was restored. The group returned to Twitter by posting a message they allegedly received from the Twitter Trust and Safety department confirming that sharing personal information was responsible for the suspension.
