CAGOP Chairwoman Locked Out of Twitter without Explanation
(Sacramento) – California Republican Party Chairwoman Jessica Millan Patterson was locked out of her Twitter account Monday morning due to suspicious activity and has neither been told what that activity was, nor allowed to log back into her account in the more than three days since, though her account is still online. After repeated attempts to fix the issue, including filing an appeal with Twitter, she is still locked out with little to no response from Twitter.
“Conservatives have faced a barrage of censorship on social media in recent years, including from Twitter,” said Patterson. “As a Republican, it is frustrating – though not surprising – to find myself unable to access Twitter without explanation. As California prepares for a likely recall election, more than three days is a long time to be silenced as the Chair of the California Republican Party while Democrats and Gavin Newsom continue to have an uninterrupted microphone. I hope that Twitter will work with us to resolve this matter and let conservative perspectives contribute to the political discourse on its platform.”

Chairwoman Patterson was unable to log in to her Twitter account on Monday morning and was alerted to change her password due to suspicious activity. After failed attempts to change her password, attempts to work with the Twitter Help Center, and filing an appeal to be reactivated on Tuesday night, she still has no response from Twitter on the cause of the issue or a plan to resolve it. The account remains active; however, she is not able to access it.
