When an account is suspended completely, the account holder is notified concerning the guidelines they’ve violated, the social media platform mentioned citing the coverage.
On Monday, writer-lyricist Hussain Haidry had shared two tweets of the actor and urged folks to report the account.
“If you are a blue tick account or with large following, I am not asking you to speak up against this. But please just quietly REPORT these two tweets. This is calling for mass violence. And directing it at Muslims,” he wrote.
