Twitter froze the McConnell campaign's "Team Mitch" account this week after the campaign posted videos of protesters outside McConnell's home, which included violent threats against the Kentucky senator.
"Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell," McConnell campaign manager Kevin Golden said in a statement on Wednesday. "This is the problem with the speech police in America today."
"The users were temporarily locked out of their accounts for a Tweet that violated our violent threats policy, specifically threats involving physical safety," a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News.
