For Immediate Release:
On Thursday January 28th, 2021 around 3pm EST Twitter suspended the account of Ryan Hartwig with the handle @RealRyanHartwig https://www.twitter.com/RealRyanHartwig
Here is the video he released discussing his suspension: https://rumble.com/vddjip-twitter-suspension-whats-next.html
Ryan believes he was suspended because he shared an affiliate link to PocketNet.App, a decentralized blockchain social media website. Here is the link he shared.
He received an email from Twitter stating the following:
“Your account, realryanhartwig has been suspended for violating the Twitter Rules. Specifically, for: Violating our rules against platform manipulation and spam. You may not use Twitter’s services in a manner intended to artificially amplify or suppress information or engage in behavior that manipulates or disrupts people’s experience on Twitter.”
At the time of the suspension, Mr. Hartwig had 34.8k followers. During the last month he lost roughly 10k followers due to the documented purge of Twitter accounts after the January 6th Capitol Protest. https://reclaimthenet.org/republicans-bleed-followers-after-twitter-bans-democrats-gain/
Ryan issued the following statement in regards to his Twitter suspension: “I find it abhorrent that Twitter would suspend my account without warning. I’m the leader of a non-profit dedicating to advocating for free speech on the internet. Twitter clearly does not stand for free speech in the 21st century.”
Mr. Hartwig, who collaborated with Project Veritas to film with a hidden camera as a content moderator at Facebook, exposed bias against conservatives as evidenced in Facebook’s policy. He plans to expand his presence on alternative social media sites such as MeWe and Gab, along with Brazilian social media platforms ConservativeCore.Net and PatriaBook.
In the last 6 months, Hartwig has done nearly 100 interviews, including many interviews in Spanish and Portuguese, in places like Brazil, Spain, Colombia, Japan and South Korea.
Here are the current platforms Mr. Hartwig is using:
