CNN host Jim Acosta said he was “banned” from using his Twitter account due to the platform’s controversial new policy banning “free advertising for banned third-party” competitors like Mastodon, Instagram and Facebook.

Acosta noted that Twitter suspended his account sometime Saturday night, and waking up Sunday said the platform found one of his tweets mentioning his Mastodon and Post accounts in violation of the policy.

Acosta’s name on Twitter mentions that he’s “also on Post and Mastodon” and he tweeted that he would tell his followers, “all about‘ his Saturday show on Post and Mastodon — however, both his name and the tweet weren’t linked or included the @ signs from Acosta’s accounts.

HuffPost reached out to Twitter to find out why the platform banned Acosta from his account.

“I’m still trying to sort it out … this all feels very random and a little hectic,” Acosta said during an interview with Business Insider reporter Linette Lopez.

Lopez, one of several journalists who saw her account banned from the platform, said she hadn’t heard anything from Twitter about her account, which she still can’t access. Lopez has been reporting on the billionaire and his businesses for years.

She told Acosta that she found the platform’s new policy humorous and recalled a time when Elon Musk shared pictures from her Facebook profile during “a Twitter campaign against” her.
