Father Ted creator Graham Linehan Banned From Twitter

Father Ted creator Graham Linehan is the latest high profile user to be suspended from Twitter for after the site said it breached rules on using banned words.

The Irish sitcom writer has been banned for 'hateful conduct', including using the word ‘groomer’ in a years old post which was found by trans rights activists after he got embroiled in an argument with them.

It comes a week after Kate Hopkins was banned from Twitter for unspecified violations of its user conduct policy.
