Blackburn's campaign on Monday responded to Twitter's decision with another tweet, assuring supporters, "Silicon Valley won't stop our conservative movement with censorship".

Just two weeks ago, Twitter said it was not removing President Donald Trump's tweets threatening military action against North Korea in part due to their "newsworthiness" and interest to the public.

The reference to stopping "the sale of unborn baby body parts" is likely a reference to Blackburn's time as chairwoman of the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives.
