Controversial commentator Katie Hopkins has been permanently suspended from Twitter for violating its hateful conduct policy, the social media giant said.
Ms Hopkins, who had more than one million followers, was previously suspended in January for a week.
But Twitter said her latest ban is permanent.
The social network did not, however, say which tweets Ms Hopkins had posted, to result in the ban.
"Keeping Twitter safe is a top priority for us - abuse and hateful conduct have no place on our service and we will continue to take action when our rules are broken," it said.
The cited hateful conduct policy bans promotion of violence or direct written attacks and threats on other people, based on a wide range of personal characteristics such as race, gender or sexual orientation.
Ms Hopkins is well-known for both her media appearances and controversial right-wing viewpoints.


She has been re-tweeted by US President Donald Trump on several occasions.
Twitter has recently taken a firmer line against Mr Trump himself over tweets it says break its policies.
The US President has seen warnings placed on some of his tweets and others hidden from general view, although they remain online.
But leaving such tweets up in the public interest is an exception Twitter makes for world leaders - other accounts like Ms Hopkins' risk being suspended when they break Twitter's rules.

PRSOM.

However, once she discovers the dark web, she'll be a hit on 8chan and Stormfront, so her career isn't quite finished yet.

No doubt. If she was thriving on snowflake tears before, she's now going to milk this 'crucifixion' to no end.

I guess miracles do happen. Katie Hopkins is a very silly woman, with stupid ideas.

Oh god, can you even imagine the victim mentality of that. "My voice will never be silenced, my voice which speaks for the oppressed white ordinary men and womenfolk of this country, hardworking salt-of-the-earth types'.

Low hanging fruit, but it's what she specialises in.

The woman is vile.

A ban from twitter will likely quash her career so I couldn't care less if it's a move by the cancel warriors, she deserves much worse.

You've just described the majority of social media users.

I'm sure a right wing commentator like herself is more than happy with a private company deciding who can use it's platform.

The problem is that its been proven to be very easy to silence an individual - Someone like Milo has bassically been driven out of the public eye by social media bans etc. But while you can silence an individual, doing so doesn't hurt the ideas they had at all, in fact all it does is make room and open up gaps for new people to come along and fill. The people who liked her tweets aren't going to stop wanting to read that sort of opinion, they will look for and embrace the new people who make a name in her void.

So as a victory for anyone who hates her personally - its great, but ideologically its a poor move in the grander political debate.

Hm perhaps.

But I think no matter what we try and do, there will always be people out there with these political opinions. It's inevitable, but it would seem only a minority follow the extremeist ideology. (ie alt right)

Twitter was her biggest platform. She had 1.1 MILLION followers, she would literally just say outrages **** in hopes of her name trending. I’m glad they’ve suspended her. Her tweets weren’t just political or her “opinions”, she would regularly insult and slander other people too. She’s a nasty piece of work tbh
