Twitter suspended the account of a prominent pro-Israel Jewish blogger Elder of Ziyon, apparently for anti-Semitism.

The blogger received a message from Twitter claiming that he violated the social media platform's "rules against abusive profile information."

"You may not use your username, display name, or profile bio to engage is abusive behavior, such as targeted harassment or expressing hate towards a person, group, or protected category," the message stated.

Elder of Ziyon's account was later reinstated.

The Elder of Ziyon blog combats anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism. The blog, which is written anonymously, has operated since 2004. The name of the blog was chosen to poke fun at anti-Semitic conspiracy theories such as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
