Kassy Dillon, a contributor to Campus Reform and Heat Street and founder of Lone Conservative, was suspended temporarily from Twitter following Tweets made about Leslie Jones.

While Twitter has not yet returned a request for comment, the suspension appears to be related to an experiment in which Dillon repeated Jones’ tweets, word for word, in an effort to expose bias.

“The only reason why I tweeted copies of what Leslie said is to show bias,” Dillon told Heat Street. “If this famous actress actress does it, it’s okay, but if I do the same thing as a conservative writer, Twitter punishes me for it.”

Dillon believes that the suspension was in part because she has been campaigning hard to reinstate Milo Yiannopoulos to Twitter and pushing the #FreeMilo hashtag.

What is strange about the suspension is who was not suspended by Twitter: People who’ve tweeted death threats and the like aimed at Dillon.

For instance, @donrikmn, is still tweeting freely after this tweet:

And Dillon’s serial harasser, @SheDontTextBack, who often sends her threats or sexual harassment, is for some reason not suspended either:

So, thanks, Jack Dorsey for doing a great job. Keep your site a toxic cesspool of harassment, except for those who subscribe to your political beliefs! That’s the way to bring new people to your platform and reverse your free-falling stock price.

Follow me on Cesspool, I mean Twitter @William__Hicks.
