Twitter apologized Sunday after locking out conservative commentator Candace Owens from her account after she was accused of violating the social media platform’s rules.
Twitter Support sent an email to Owens apologizing for locking her account and admitted to making an error. Owens responded to the unlocking of her account in a tweet.
“BLOWN AWAY by the amount of patriots that just came to my side to make this happen,” Owens said in a tweet, adding she was “blessed to know you all.”
Owens’ Turning Point USA colleague Charlie Kirk tweeted earlier Sunday Owens was suspended after she copied tweets from New York Times editorial board member Sarah Jeong.
Owens swapped Jeong’s tweets using different races and religions. Jeong came under fire last week after old tweets surfaced of her lashing out against white people.
