Twitter has banned several popular Antifa accounts, after the riots that took place following Joe Biden Inauguration Day, according to reports.

@JewishWorker, @RevAbolition, @RevAbolitionNYC and @TheBaseBK are the accounts suspended by Twitter, as per the New York Post.

The accounts dated back to 2012, nine years ago. They all comprised 71,000 folowers.

Their pages now read “account suspended” for violating Twitter rules.

Antifa Sacramento railed against The Base’s suspension on its own Twitter.

“Our comrades w The Base (@TheBasebk), an anarchist social center in Brooklyn, NY of 9 years now took this Twitter thing seriously. Reaching a platform of 17k followers they pushed a very specific line where politics were never blurred. Today, Twitter took their account down, and now theres a void,” the group tweeted Thursday.

“The Base took the same approach to Twitter as they do in the struggle for liberation. As anarchists they take a stand & never waver. Its inspiring. And we encourage everyone to check their site now & periodically http://thebasebk.org Solidarity forever!”

The suspensions were first reported by Andy Ngo, who runs the conservative blog The Post Millennial.

Twitter didn’t immediately return an email.

According to KOMO News, Antifas ransacked Seattle’s Occidental Park only hours after Joe Biden had been sworn into office — with demonstrators setting an American flag on fire.

They also marched through Portland, Oregon with a banner reading, “WE DON’T WANT BIDEN — WE WANT REVENGE!”

Twitter has been cracking down on accounts belonging to extremist groups and those that peddle conspiracy theories following the Jan. 6 siege on the US Capitol.

More than 70,000 QAnon-related accounts have since been purged.
