Twitter Says Lincoln Project Cofounder John Weaver Didn’t Violate Rules on Unwanted Sexual Advances

Twitter says that disgraced Lincoln Project cofounder John Weaver did not violate its rules on unwanted sexual advances when he allegedly used the platform’s direct messaging system to sexually proposition young men.

Twitter’s rules against unwanted sexual advances prohibit:

  • unwanted sexual discussion of someone’s body
  • solicitation of sexual act; and
  • any other content that otherwise sexualizes an individual without their consent.

A Twitter spokesman told Breitbart News that the platform had looked into the matter and found no violations of its policies.

Over twenty young men have said John Weaver, who still has an active account on the platform, used Twitter’s direct messages feature to send them unwanted sexual advances.

Many screenshots of these direct messages have been published. One of the alleged victims was 14 years old, according to the New York Times.
