As Twitter users on the far-right got up in arms over the suspension of bots that decreased their number of followers, another online platform took a harder stance against members of the conservative media.
The suspensions were first noted by Twitter user Nathan Bernard.
Mike Cernovich and Jack Posobiec have had a rough month. Both caught cheating on their wives and now they have been suspended from Medium. Things are not looking good. @medium @cernovich @jackposobiechttps://t.co/15k9TZARfNhttps://t.co/LEMETtYYSF pic.twitter.com/97jFwoXlDo

According to the Outline, it was likely a Feb. 7 update to their “Medium Rules” is the likely reason behind these users getting the boot.
In a section on Related Content, Medium announced it could suspend users for content they post outside of Medium.
“We do not allow posts or accounts that engage in on-platform, off-platform, or cross-platform campaigns of targeting, harassment, hate speech, violence, or disinformation. We may consider off-platform actions in assessing a Medium account, and restrict access or availability to that account.”
When reached for comment, on the matter, Medium said it did not discuss actions taken with individual accounts.
