Twitter on Thursday suspended the account of a popular conservative commentator after the user shared a joke campaign flyer that made it seem as if Chinese Communist Party Chairman Xi Jinping had endorsed Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
The Biden campaign created a program on its website in which supporters can create personalized campaign banners that declare them "on Team Joe." Pranksters have been using the website to create sarcastic and anti-Biden memes in droves.
Twitter has not yet confirmed why it suspended the account of @ALX, a staffer for the conservative organization Turning Point USA. ALX called the suspension "deeply troubling."
