Washington: has permanently suspended the account of a conspiracy theorist and right-wing commentator Jim Hoft.

Hoft is the founder of the right-wing website Gateway Pundit, best known for promoting claims about vote rigging during the 2020 US presidential election.
 
Reacting to his account being taken down Hoft wrote on his website, “This is yet another horrific development.”
 
Hoft said he was banned from Twitter on Saturday afternoon, less than a day after he published a video that he claimed showed late night deliveries of tens of thousands of illegal absentee ballots to a vote-processing center in Detroit.
 
He promised that more evidence of vote rigging was coming up. (UNI)
