Twitter Suspends, Immediately Unsuspends, Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos

The puckishly controversial Breitbart journalist Milo Yiannopoulos was banned from Twitter for half an hour Wednesday, only to have his account restored after a backlash.

The offending tweet appears to this one, which sparked outrage on the Arabic-speaking Twitterverse.

Yiannopoulos’ account was then suspended, prompting a blaring red headline on The Drudge Report.


The backlash from his fans and the Drudge headline evidently got the decision reversed, and Yiannopoulos was back to his snarky self in no time.
