Twitter permanently suspends former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne: Libertarian and former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne had his Twitter account permanently suspended. The notice from Twitter states that this is due to violations of Twitter's "rules about election integrity." Byrne had previously been suspended after tweeting questions about the 2020 presidential election, and it was suspected that the suspension might be permanent at the time. Byrne has moved into alternative social media sites, including an investment into Locals.com, and posted about this suspension on his Telegram channel, where he also noted, "Hey I would much rather have 100,000 telegram subscribers than 250,000 Twitter followers anyway."
