Twitter declares Queensland Senator Fraser Anning's account violated "hateful conduct" policy

Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.

In the following sixteen months he:

* notoriously used the phrase The final solution to the immigration problem in his first speech in the Senate;
* declared himself an Independent senator;
* voted with Morrison Government senators to pass a One Nation motion that endorsed the white *supremacist term It is OK to be white;
* applied to register Fraser Anning’s Conservative National Party (aka The Conservative Nationals);
* was publicly condemned by the New Zealand Prime Minister for a statement he issued after the terrorist attack on two Christchurch mosques;  
* is the subject of a foreshadowed parliamentary censure motion by both the Morrison Government and the Labor Opposition on 1 April 2019.
