Facebook has blocked former congressman Dr Ron Paul from editing his page, the former US representative noted.
On Monday, Dr Paul reported that Facebook had excluded him from his account citing vague violations of community standards.
“With no explanation other than ‘going against our community’s standards,’ @Facebook kept me from managing my page,” the former freedom-loving congressman tweeted.
“We have never received a notice of violation of community standards in the past and nowhere has the offending message been identified.”
In a follow-up post, Dr Paul explained that the only thing he posted on Facebook on Monday was his “Texas Straight Talk” column, “which I’ve been posting weekly since 1976.”
The only thing we posted on Facebook today was my weekly column “Texas Straight Talk,” which I’ve been posting weekly since 1976.
