Twitter temporarily locked several journalists who work for Splinter News out of their accounts on Wednesday and limited others’ Twitter use, after the outlet published a cell phone number belonging to President Donald Trump’s senior policy adviser, Stephen Miller.
In an brief article about Miller’s influence on the Trump administration’s decision to implement a “zero tolerance” immigration policy which has resulted in the separation of thousands of children from their families, Splinter noted that Miller has “been rather unavailable for direct feedback from the public” while other administration officials have publicly defended the practice.
“We all know that Donald Trump is a great fan of facilitating direct feedback from the public, because he personally published the cell phone numbers of both his Republican primary opponent Lindsey Graham and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos,” read the article, whose author remained anonymous. “So it is fair to assume he would support the public’s right to call (or text) Stephen Miller.”
