Twitter suspended the account of author James Lindsay on Friday after he replied to a transgender Harvard instructor.
Clinical instructor of cyberlaw Alejandra Caraballo sparked the interaction that warranted Lindsay's suspension. Lindsay is known for controversial tweets, and Caraballo called him out.
"Your misogynoir is showing," Caraballo wrote.

"Ok, child sexualization specialist," Lindsay responded with his final tweet.
Lindsay's suspension was captured in a screenshot, explaining his ban began because the tweet violated the platform's hateful content rule. Twitter claimed the tweet promoted "violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease."
"Good riddance," Caraballo tweeted, along with a screenshot of Lindsay's now-suspended account. "Tell James, I want him to know it was me."

Caraballo seemingly reported Lindsay, screenshotting Twitter's private responses.
"Twitter has inconvenienced me and simultaneously confessed that they have a vested interest in protecting the sexualization of children," Lindsay said in a statement. "This also suggests the possibility of an untoward relationship between Twitter and Media Matters, which deserves investigation. I'm glad they've drawn so much attention to the issue, in any case. It has to stop. We must protect our children."

Lindsay was temporarily suspended in June for calling another user a "groomer" and in May for retweeting alleged misinformation surrounding COVID-19. Because this was his third strike, the suspension is permanent, and Lindsay will not be able to create a new account.Social Media News Twitter Celebrities Cancel Culture

During the Gunners' 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Friday, Spurs fan Sugar tweeted: "Pink shirts! I wonder if @IanWright0 would have played in a pink shirt."
Sugar, 75, soon came under fire for his remark online.
But Wright responded in perfect fashion by donning a stylish pink number for the opening Match of the Day of the season.
The 58-year-old Arsenal legend also said on the show: "Real men can wear pink."Read More In FootballTRANSFER NEWS Chelsea in Frenkie de Jong £59m plus Alonso bid, Cristiano Ronaldo future

While a third added: "Ian Wright is a national treasure."
Wright and Sugar were involved in a feud last month after the latter suggested he should complain about the lack of male commentators at the Women's Euros.
The former Gunner blasted businessman Sugar when he took to social media again saying he was "pleased" Wright had been "given the opportunity" to be on the punditry team.
Wright fumed in a video response: "It's doing my head in, I can't believe it.
"Alan, the thing is my friend, rather than just say 'I got it wrong, lots of men are working at all levels of the tournament', you doubled down on some complete f***ing foolishness.
"So in your mind you actually thought after you sent that tweet that the BBC phoned me up, never mind the fact that we've been ready to do this for a year, I've been booked for a year."
