Twitter bans 'pharma bro' Martin Shkreli for harassing journalist

He responded to the Teen Vogue weekend editor by saying that she first eat her heart when she started snacking on her organs

Messages between the pair started last Thursday when he sent Ms Duca a direct message asking her to accompany him as his plus one to the inauguration ceremony of President-elect Donald Trump.

Writer Lauren Duca reached out to Twitter head Jack Dorsey for help Sunday after Shkreli replaced his Twitter account's background and profile picture with various photos of Duca. "How is this allowed?"

He had also changed his Twitter profile to read "i have a small crush on @laurenduca" before the suspension.

Unfortunately, much of the attention was sexist nonsense from Twitter trolls - including Martin Shkreli.

Public health experts concerned over soaring flu cases
Duchin stressed that it is not too late to get a vaccination shot and urges people to do so if they haven't already. Edward Moreno recommends that individuals at least six months of age and older be vaccinated against the flu.

According to the person at Twitter familiar with the matter, Shkreli's suspension is temporary.

Duca has been in the news a lot lately after penning the essay "Trump is Gaslighting America" for Teen Vogue. The picture was Photoshopped from an original image of Duca and her husband.

Duca posted the screenshots of the threatening emails that she has been receiving from fake accounts, apparently. He even changed his banner to a collage of photos of the journalist and also tweeted that he had purchased the domain name "marrymelauren.com".

Twitter told Gizmodo that Martin Shkreli's account had been suspended because of his unbecoming conduct with and harassment of Lauren Duca. Shkreli declined to answers questions, invoking his 5th Amendment rights.

"The Twitter Rules prohibit targeted harassment, and we will take action on accounts violating those policies", a Twitter spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider.

Shkreli first made headlines in 2015 when he raised the price of the AIDS drug Daraprim from $13.50 a pill to $750.

Looks like Shkreli will have to find some other way to pass the time while he awaits his fraud trial in June. Another person who remained anonymous mentioned that this is the reason for which Shkreli was suspended from Twitter. In July 2016, the company permanently banned Breitbart editor and conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos for his tweets targeting "SNL" and "Ghostbusters" actress Leslie Jones.
