Twitter locks Gays Against Groomers' account: Twitter locked the popular Gays Against Groomers' account according to an article by The Post Millennial. The group tweeted, "Damaged people damage people. The internet is a dangerous place for kids, especially when you have radical alphabet activists openly grooming them. Protect your children from these people at all costs. #GaysAgainstGroomers." According the purported screenshots, Twitter claimed the tweet violated its rules against hateful conduct. "You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease," the platform reportedly said. Twitter then reportedly limited some of the account's features for 12 hours. In a statement shared to Gays Against Groomer's newly renamed Twitter account, the group said, "It's very alarming and sad that our coalition, which is comprised solely of members of the LGBT community, has been silenced by Twitter in an apparent attempt to protect those seeking to hurt and abuse children, and using community to do so."
