Twitter suspended the account of independent journalist Leeroy Johnsonwithout explanation.

Johnson covers happenings and protests all over the country. Recently, he had been covering posting anti-vaccine mandate protests in New York.

After the Twitter suspension, he created an account on GETTR and announced: “My Twitter account was suspended! Please spread the word ! My Instagram account is still up same name on Twitter.”

Johnson had a backup Twitter account that was also quickly deleted.

Johnson was in Washington DC covering the annual March for Life.

This is a clip from our most recent episode (see link below for the full episode) where our guest Angela McArdle, the Chair of the Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County, explains some political strategies that she has implemented to fight vaccine passports in Los Angeles and New York and provides solutions that you can do in your community.

Speaking to The Post Millennial, he reiterated that Twitter “gave me no reason at all” for the suspension.
“I just logged in and it said my account was suspended,” he added.

The message Twitter sent him about the suspension read: “Your account (@LeeroyPress) is currently suspended. For more information, please log into twitter.com.”

“This is crazy. I don’t even give an opinion when I post. I just shot (sic) and give a description,” Johnson explained.

He told The Post Millennial that an old account he does not use was also removed.
