Ali Alexander, Nick Fuentes Banned From Twitter Again

Far-right figures Ali Alexander and Nick Fuentes were kicked from Twitter shortly after their two accounts were restored.

Fuentes, the 24-year-old white nationalist best known for his anti-Semitic views and Holocaust denial, had his verified account permanently suspended Wednesday less than 24 hours after it returned to the platform.

Alexander, a conspiracy theorist who led the so-called stop-the-steal movement, had his account restored earlier this month after originally losing access following the Jan. 6 Capitol riots. Like Fuentes, Alexander’s account was suddenly removed on Wednesday morning.

Although this is unconfirmed, many have speculated that Fuentes’ removal may have been linked to a Twitter space he held on Tuesday night, where he made countless anti-Semitic remarks and praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Fuentes had also shared a tweet with the text “DEFCON 3,” a reference to rapper Kanye West’s tweet in which he threatened to go “Death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.” Musk personally suspended West at the time for his continued anti-Semitic remarks.

In a statement on his Telegram channel, Fuentes responded to his suspension by writing that “it was fun while it lasted”. Fuentes also urged his followers to start tweeting the hashtag “#FREENICKFUENTES.”

Alexander also responded to his own suspension on Telegram, arguing that he hadn’t broken any of the platform’s rules.

“Am I suspended? You suspended Nick and I?” Alexander asked. “UPDATE: I don’t have email. I didn’t break any rules again. This was a manually triggered suspension by an employee.”

It is still unclear whether the two accounts will remain permanently blocked this time or whether they will return to Twitter in the future.
