Satirical news website Babylon Bee was suspended from Twitter for what the social media platform determined to be hateful conduct. Twitter suspended the Babylon Bee for writing: “The Babylon Bee’s Man Of The Year Is Rachel Levine.” The tweet included a link to a Babylon Bee article that was parodying USA Today naming Levine as one of its “Women of the Year.” Twitter declared the account would restore in 12 hours after the Babylon Bee had deleted the tweet in question. Babylon Bee CEO said, “We’re not deleting anything… Truth is not hate speech.”
