Milo Facebook Post Bot Banned from Twitter on Election Day


A Twitter account under the name of @NeroFB that posts daily Facebook statuses made by Breitbart Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos was suspended from the social network on Tuesday.

Attempting to visit the account displayed a message stating that it has been suspended.

“It started normal today. I saved Milo’s pictures to my phone and posted them on Twitter. Then around 2:30ish I saw Milo posted some more and I copied and pasted and hit tweet,” said the account’s admin to Breitbart Tech. “Then it said the account was suspended. No reason was given so I requested an appeal and now I’m waiting.”

In July, Milo’s official account was banned on Twitter during the RNC, just minutes before he was set to host a large “Gays for Trump” party.

In September, Twitter also banned the official Twitter account for Milo’s podcast The Milo Yiannopoulos Show, despite it being run by staff.

“Twitter is clearly stupid as well as biased. As election day nears, they’re doubling down on attempts to influence the result, yet all this is likely to do is make more people sympathize with our side,” said Milo in September. “My podcast account was not managed by me, and never violated Twitter’s terms of service. I suspect this ban is like the last one — part of the company’s desperate attempts to appease left-wing celebrities.”
