Twitter has permanently banned conservative investigative journalist Paul Sperry, allegedly without warning and without his having broken any rules.

"There were no warnings," Sperry told the Gateway Pundit. "No rules were broken, they just don't like me because of their politics."

Sperry's Twitter suspension follows those of other high-profile conservatives, such as former President Donald TrumpProject Veritas, and Gateway Pundit's own founder, Jim Hoft. 

"They are trying to push me off their platform," Sperry said. "If they can harass and silence a professional journalist, they can silence anybody."

Sperry told the Gateway Pundit that Twitter's reasoning for suspending him was that his account was "a robot," which Sperry denies.
