Twitter apologizes for suspending Christian satire site’s account

The staff of the Babylon Bee, a conservative Christian satire website, voiced their displeasure this week after Twitter temporarily suspended the outlet’s account and labeled it spam.

CEO Seth Dillon called attention to the development on Monday and later shared an update that included an apology from the social media company.

“Twitter said it was ‘sorry for the inconvenience’ and said the account had been ‘flagged as spam by mistake,'” he wrote in a tweet that also contained a screenshot of Twitter’s statement.

Dillon subsequently confirmed that the Babylon Bee is “back on Twitter, at least for the time being,” but said the staff “shares the concerns of others who’ve rightly observed that these ‘mistakes’ tend to work in one direction.”

He also reiterated a previous statement asserting that social media platforms are not “friendly to Christians or conservatives” and express hostility “toward those with more traditional views and values.”
