I know y’all have heard about these recent Facebook and Twitter purges, but my Facebook page (the only page I have ever had, or have ever been affiliated with on Facebook), and Twitter account, @AllenWest, with the blue verified check mark on each platform, weren’t part of it.
Neither account has ever been banned or purged. You are hearing it from me, directly, and I’d appreciate your help in letting others know when you see this false information online.
This misinformation has circulated enough that I felt the need to address it.
My work as a Senior Fellow at the Media Research Center focuses on censorship of conservative voices. Rest assured that I am diligently working to eradicate warrantless media bias.
Thank you for your help in getting the correct information out there!
