Twitter Locks Writer's Account After Asking Why Ocasio-Cortez's Boyfriend Has a House.gov Email

Twitter locked the account of writer and podcast host Luke Thompson after he sent a tweet questioning why the boyfriend of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) appears to have an official house.gov email address.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez responded to Thompson’s allegation, saying that her boyfriend’s congressional email address was so he could have access to her Google calendar.

Hi @AOC, Not sure if you read the rules or not, but only "House Members, officers, employees, fellows, interns, and contractors" are authorized to have access to the mail system.

Other users on Twitter drew attention to the other aspect of the story — that Twitter immediately sprung into action to lock Thompson’s account after he questioned a public official.
