Twitter suspends account of Trump ally Roger Stone

Roger Stone has complete meltdown on Twitter after CNN reports Mueller has secured an indictment

Twitter refused to comment on Stone's suspension specifically, as they typically do, but sources told the Hollywood Reporter that the suspension is a permanent ban.

On Friday, in a series of offensive tweets, Stone lashed out at some of CNN's personalities, including anchors Jake Tapper and Don Lemon.

The menacing tone seemed particularly inflammatory coming just days after the New York Police Department confirmed an investigation into "threatening and anti-black messages" tweeted to Lemon.

Stone is a veteran of numerous political campaigns dating back to the 1970s and even has a tattoo of President Nixon on his back.

Stone, a legendary Republican operative, was briefly a formal Trump campaign adviser and used to run a lobbying firm with former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, whose home was raided by FBI agents as part of Mueller's investigation.

On Friday, CNN reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has issued the first indictment related to the ongoing investigation into the Trump administration's ties to Russian Federation.

Stone has access to at least two other Twitter accounts through which he has continued to press his case.

Longtime Trump ally Roger Stone's account was suspended by Twitter on Saturday - but the self-styled agent provocateur is vowing to return to the social network.

One of the people he targeted on Saturday, CNN contributor Ana Navarro, said she did not sympathise with Mr Stone over his suspension.

"I have been informed that I have been suspended for 3 hours and 12 minutes".

In the media following his removal, Stone complained about being banned while users who he claims have threatened him, his family, and his little dogs, too, continue to tweet freely.

It took almost 20 years for Roger Stone to realize his dream.

"Twitter wants to avoid being regulated like a utility", he told the publication.

Stone's tweets, which have been archived by Deadline, referred to Lemon an "ignorant lying covksucker" and saying Lemon "must be confronted, humiliated, mocked and punished".
