Attorney Lin Wood, who is representing Kyle Rittenhouse against the multiple charges leveled against him, had his Twitter account locked out today by the social media giant. He is expected to have his account reinstated early tomorrow morning. Unlike most circumstances in which a Twitter account is locked, there does not appear to be an explanation attached to Twitter’s message.
TWITTER HAS LOCKED OUT LIN WOOD. RETWEET IMMEDIATELY. PLEASE SEND ME SUGGESTIONS ON ACCOUNTS WITH LARGE FOLLOWERS TO TWEEY THIS TO. #FIGHTBACK @realDonaldTrump @michellemalkin @AnnCoulter @RudyGiuliani @SaraCarterDC @carterwpage pic.twitter.com/FRhy7k3EWk

Twitter often restricts accounts, particularly those belonging to politically or culturally conservative users, based on mass-reporting done by the opposition. If a particular Tweet is reported by enough credible accounts, the algorithm kicks in and limits it. This can be reversed by a manual check by Twitter, but Wood’s account is popular but not “verified” with a blue checkmark. It is unlikely it will receive a manual review.
Wood has made many enemies on Twitter as a result of his pro-American stance. He has been attached loosely to he QAnon movement which has also been heavily censored by Twitter. His profile uses one of the hashtags from QAnon, #WWG1WGA, which means “Where We Go One We Go All.”
As long as Twitter keeps censoring conservatives, it risks its protection under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. We will keep a close eye and anxiously await Lin Wood’s return.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.

When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time.
