On Wednesday morning, May 2, 2018, at 6:12am, Twitter informed me that they had suspended my account. The reason they gave me was just as intriguing as Facebook banning me for my crime of reporting a Muslim’s physical threat against me. Twitter’s problem with me? Well, I had violated Twitter’s “rules against hateful conduct.” They write:
And what was my hateful conduct? It appears that quoting the Qur’an and Hadith now falls under that category.
Twitter tells me that two of my tweets “violate” their “rules” in this context. In one of the tweets, I quote Sahih Bukhari’s texts about Mohammed’s marriage to Aisha when she was 6-years-old and how he treated her. In the other tweet, I quote Qur’anic Suras that mandate the Hijab for women and sanction sex slavery.
