Less than two weeks after being banned from YouTube, a platform where he’d spent 14 years building a following of more than 928,000 subscribers, philosophy show host Stefan Molyneux has been banned from Twitter.

Like YouTube, Twitter was a major platform for Molyneux and he’d spent nine years building a base of more than 483,000 subscribers before his account was suspended.

The banning of Molyneux is the latest of several recent high profile bans with President Trump’s favorite meme artist Carpe Donktum and conservative British commentator Katie Hopkins also getting the boot last month.

Unlike YouTube, where Molyneux was suspended for alleged “hate speech,” a Twitter spokesperson told CNN’s Oliver Darcy that Molyneux had been suspended for “spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”

On a DLive livestream addressing the ban, Molyneaux said that he didn’t know what Twitter meant by that and that “it’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me.”

Molyneux wrote that he was promoting an essay on his beliefs at the time of his ban and that: “Powerful people do NOT want you to read it.”

In addition to losing years worth of content on two Big Tech platforms where he had more than a million collective subscribers, Molyneux was also banned from email marketing service Mailchimp earlier this year after allegations from an activist.
