Twitter suspends Saoradh account

The Twitter account of republican political party Saoradh has been suspended by the social media organisation. The organisation which has the support of the ‘New IRA’ said it was aware of the situation but Derry based spokesman for the party Paddy Gallagher said there would be “no comment” on the move by the internet giants. Twitter said it operated “clear Terms of Service in place which we enforce when violations are identified.” According to those terms of service, common reasons for the suspension of a Twitter account include spam, account security at risk and abusive tweets or behaviour. Earlier yesterday, the Derry branch of Saoradh based at Junior McDaid House in the city centre posted on their Facebook account that they were now in a position “to offer experienced and professional welfare rights advice.” The post added: “This free service, which forms part of our wider Socialist ideology, will help those who are unfortunately reliant on the welfare state. With impending benefit changes and cuts imposed by Sinn Fein, Saoradh activists will offer advice and help with the following issues: Universal Credit, ESA, PIP and Housing Queries." In addition to these free services, Saoradh encourage members of our community to contact us directly for assistance in dealing with local council level issues. “If you wish to make an appointment to speak with one of our professionally trained welfare rights advisors you can contact us on 02871271967. Alternatively you can call to our offices at 14 Chamberlain Street or private message our Facebook page for further information.”
