Robby Starbuck thinks Cortes may have been banned for “pedo-bashing.”
I don’t know @AJA_Cortes but I hear he’s been banned. I suspect he’s banned for advocating harsher consequences for pedophiles. With an unverified account I bet they banned instead of forcing tweet deletions. Twitter is enforcing their pedophile protection policy to the extreme. https://t.co/X6uhk6QqAv

Other users expressed their shock at Alexander Cortes’ banning.
The banning of @AJA_Cortes is outrageous. Getting rid of a guy who was helping many, many people and creating compelling content on this platform reveals a lot about the agenda of those running it. https://t.co/PfHfYrYV2R

Sad day when @AJA_Cortes gets banned from Twitter.
He'll be back, I'm sure.
He's supported many people freely, and has always been a solid colleague and good dude.

He commented on an article about how pedophiles can’t be cured that “a rope” would cure them, and I think that’s what did him in. Hope I’m wrong. That is seriously screwed up if Twitter is defending pedophiles (not even specific pedophiles, but pedophiles as an abstracted group in the subject of an article).
“Defending pedophiles” would imply that they’re showing favoritism to them. It would be seriously fucked up if Twitter was defending literally anyone AT ALL. It would be extremely unethical of them to do so. However, it seems from your comment that they may just have been impartially enforcing twitter’s rules. We’ll have to wait for more information to come to light.
Path To Manliness says
He was critical of wrongthink according to Silicon Valley.
This wasn’t a banning. This was a cultural assassination.
Vincent Menniti says
I live in Silicon Valley.
It’s real and it happens.
… which means he’s now a member of the DissentWatch.com family. Congratulations Alex!
The man is a total jerk-off but he has some good things to say and did absolutely nothing to be banned. The people that run twitter are unAmerican scum that deserve horrible fates
