; Update: @ChrisLoesch is back up and running


Just as with @FreeMarket_US last week, Twitter has suspended the account of conservative Chis Loesch. Chis is the husband of talk radio host and CNN contributor Dana Loesch and is very active on Twitter. Once again, Twitter’s reasons for suspending Chris’s account are not clear.

However, as @RBPundit and @lheal point out, it is likely due to liberals abusing Twitter’s system for reporting spam.

Liberals probably reported him for spam. It's getting ridiculous. RT @DLoesch: Why did @Twitter suspend @ChrisLoesch 's account?

— RB (@RBPundit) April 30, 2012

Dear @twitter, Leftists are intentionally blocking and reporting accounts that are not violating any rules. Fix it and track them down!

— RB (@RBPundit) April 30, 2012

Hi, @twitter @support @abuse. Please reinstate @ChrisLoesch, as he is victim of an organized political attack.

— One Who Remembers (@lheal) April 30, 2012

Dana Loesch and many others want answers from Twitter. Why did they suspend Chris Loesch’s account? Was the suspension due to liberals flag-spamming him?

Is Twitter working on a solution to keep liberals from abusing the spam submission system in the future?

. @Twitter told @chrisloesch his account was suspended for apparently replying to people. ??

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) April 30, 2012

I will be retweeting anything with @ChrisLoesch 's name in it untill @Twitter @Support returns his account #FreeChrisLoesch

— Todd (@DCToddM) April 30, 2012

Dude, I get on Twitter for five seconds and find out @ChrisLoesch got suspended. WTH, @twitter?! Trend: #FreeChrisLoesch

— Leah (@oooitsleah) April 30, 2012

When did @chrisloesch get renditioned to Twitmo? No trial? No due process? Come on, @Twitter

— Seth (@dcseth) April 30, 2012

Look at some of the invectives thrown at me tonight in my timeline, yet @Twitter suspended @chrisloesch 's account. Crazy.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) April 30, 2012

Some people maliciously suspended @ChrisLoesch for political reasons. FIX. @safety

— Dr. Fearvento (@NJFiorvento) April 30, 2012

Attn: @Twitter & @support@ChrisLoesch was suspended unjustly. Might want to do something about threats against @DLoesch though

Can we get #FreeChrisLoesch trending?

— Ben Howe (@BenHowe) April 30, 2012

I like @Twitter , I just don't get why some accounts (like @KillZimmerman) are kept and others like @chrisloesch are suspended.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) April 30, 2012

@Safety, @lheal tweet's are correct. @ChrisLoesch was maliciously marked by organized political foes. They should be suspended.

— Ed Shahzade (@Ed) April 30, 2012

Update: Due to a tidal wave of tweets #FreeChrisLoesch has trended worldwide.

We will update this post as more information comes in.


Welcome to the #twittergulag:

Liberals want to shut down free speech rights. The "report for spam" attacks today have proven it. #TwitterGulag @twitter #tcot

— JK the Slacker (@ConservaSlacker) April 30, 2012

@michellemalkin @adams @chrisloesch @freemarket_us Some vicious people r using spam reporting 2get @twitter to send Consrvs to #TwitterGulag

— WheresPatton (@FightinBluHen51) April 30, 2012


So @chrisloesch suspended by @Twitter for defending @dloesch. But rape/violence threats against conserv women ok==> http://t.co/nwJZpVY8

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) April 30, 2012

.@adams Can you help? What happened to @chrisloesch 's account? First @freemarket_us. Now this. Please help==> http://t.co/OJ7FdcqY

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) April 30, 2012


After a massive pushback tonight, Chris Loesch is free!

I am back! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! I'm sure they will try to coordinate to have me suspended again… Thanks to my love @DLoesch the most!

— Chris Loesch (@ChrisLoesch) April 30, 2012

Thank you, @Twitter , for listening to #freeChrisLoesch and reinstating @ChrisLoesch .

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) April 30, 2012

It’s not over yet. Coordinated flag-spamming is a problem that Twitter needs to address now and preemptively, not AFTER conservative accounts are targeted and taken down.

Second, Chris lost all of his followers. Help:

Evidently ALL of my followers were deleted! Please help me get them back!

— Chris Loesch (@ChrisLoesch) April 30, 2012


Were you a target of left-wing flag-spammers trying to take out conservative voices on Twitter. Twitchy will try and compile a list of unjustly suspended accounts. Please send your info (and as much documentation as possible that you were targeted) to tips-at-twitchy.com or below in comments. Kudos to @shanewright22 and @benhowe for getting the ball rolling.

Standing our ground!




Update: 12:36am Unbelievable. Chris Loesch’s account has been suspended again.

Hi @support , @chrisloesch account has been wrongly suspended for 2nd time in an hour. Please fix this. #freechrisloesch

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) April 30, 2012

This is clearly orchestrated to shut him down and send a message. #freechrisloesch

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) April 30, 2012


Chris’s crime? Defending his wife from vile, vicious, violent attacks.

#freechrisloeschagain is trending.

#FreeChrisLoeschAgain is trending: pic.twitter.com/D0aZmbtF

— Jerome Hudson (@JeromeEHudson) April 30, 2012

Update 1:23am Chris was back up again briefly, then suspended again.

We will have much more on the flag-spam abusers and Twitter’s p.r. problem.

Stay tuned.


Update: Twitter, you have a problem.
