Johnson had a backup Twitter account that was also quickly deleted.
Johnson was in Washington DC covering the annual March for Life.
Speaking to The Post Millennial, he reiterated that Twitter “gave me no reason at all” for the suspension.
“I just logged in and it said my account was suspended,” he added.
The message Twitter sent him about the suspension read: “Your account (@LeeroyPress) is currently suspended. For more information, please log into twitter.com.”
“This is crazy. I don’t even give an opinion when I post. I just shot (sic) and give a description,” Johnson explained.
He told The Post Millennial that an old account he does not use was also removed.
