Republicans pulled ad dollars from Twitter – an action that could have cost Twitter millions of dollars – in response to Twitter locking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign account, according to Digital News Daily.

The report added that “the Republican National Committee, campaign arms of the House and Senate GOP, the Senate Leadership Fund, and Donald Trump’s re-election campaign had all committed to a Twitter boycott.

“Depending on the length of the boycott, Twitter could potentially lose millions.

“The controversy began after Twitter locked McConnell’s campaign account for posting a video of protesters gathered outside of the Senator’s home. The video violated Twitter’s violent threats policy, the company said earlier this week.

But, days after the social media platform froze the “Team Mitch” account over the video it posted of threats against the Republican Senate leader, the situation appeared to be resolved Friday as the campaign celebrated having Twitter access again.
