According to a Twitter spokesperson, Project Veritas was suspended over “repeated violations of Twitter’s private information policy.”

As for O’Keefe’s account, he has been told by Twitter he must delete a tweet that is in violation of Twitter’s TOS. His account on Thursday afternoon remains “temporarily locked” over a post of a video of a Facebook vice president.

In the video, Facebook VP Guy Rosen says the site “freezes” comment sections on posts suspected of hate speech. Veritas also posted a video approaching Rosen asking for comment. The video of Rosen was filmed at his house.

In October, O’Keefe’s claims of “ballot harvesting” in Minnesota ultimately fell apart after their voter fraud “insider” was revealed to run a non-existent organization.

The Daily Dot also documented a shady pipeline where Project Veritas “whistleblowers” are often given GoFundMe paydays.
