Roger Stone suspended from Twitter after personal attacks against CNN

Roger Stone Tweets Obscenities, Insults At CNN Anchors: Advises “Severe Punishment”

Mr. Stone has since promised to speak out on other Twitter accounts, including those associated with his blog and the biographical movie "Get Me Roger Stone".

Stone, the consultant and lobbyist whose devotion to Republicans from Richard Nixon to Donald Trump was chronicled in the Netflix documentary Get Me Roger Stone, flew into high dudgeon Twitter mode after Lemon tweeted the news that a Washington D.C. grand jury filed first charges in Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

Stone responded to his suspension from Twitter by threatening to file a lawsuit against the social media site for infringing on his First Amendment rights, Politico reported.

Stone's tweets, which have been archived by Deadline, referred to Lemon an "ignorant lying covksucker" and saying Lemon "must be confronted, humiliated, mocked and punished".

It is one of the highest-profile account suspensions since Twitter has said it will take stronger action against bullying and threats of violence on its service.

Twitter declined to comment specifically on Stone's account, instead highlighting the company's policy on abusive behavior. "This is just part and parcel of the tech left's effort to silence conservative voices".

Stone, who helped Trump win the election, told Politico on Sunday he had chose to bring legal action against Twitter, although it was unclear what that action would be.

Stone also told Politico that he, his family, and even his dog have received death threats on Twitter. And since the election, Stone has been a stalwart ally of Trump, attacking the president's critics on Twitter and elsewhere. "Do NOT get in my face when I call a cunt a cunt [sic]", Stone tweeted.

Then his Twitter account was suspended, but there was some confusion. One is affiliated with his blog Stone Cold Truth, and another is related to the Netflix documentary about him.
