Conservatives are up in metaphorical arms after Twitter locked out the account of Lin Wood, the attorney who launched a defense fund for alleged Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, saying he somehow violated their rules.
Wood is the attorney who won sizable settlements for Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann in defamation suits against CNN and the Washington Post. Last week, he volunteered to represent Rittenhouse pro bono and set up a legal defense fund for him.
The lawyer’s account is still visible, but the last post was more than 16 hours ago. Twitter has not specified which rules Wood may have violated.
One of the theories making the rounds is that Wood is linked to ‘QAnon,’ the conspiracy-minded community blanket-banned by Twitter back in July over alleged potential for “real world harm.”
