A political commentator says Twitter failed to take action when she reported graphic threats from Cesar Sayoc, who was arrested Friday in connection with suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats and CNN’s New York office.

The Cut reports that Rochelle Ritchie, a former press secretary to House Democrats, tweeted screenshots on Friday afternoon showing threatening messages sent to her from Soyac’s now-suspended Twitter account, @hardrock2016, after she appeared on Fox News. She also included a screenshot of a message from Twitter she received Oct. 11 saying that the tweets did not violate its rules against abuse.

“Hey @Twitter remember when I reported the guy who was making threats towards me after my appearance on @FoxNews and you guys sent back a bs response about how you didn’t find it that serious,” Ritchie tweeted. “Well guess what it’s the guy who has been sending #bombs to high profile politicians!!!!”
