Campbell wrote on his website today: “As a number of alert readers may have already spotted, our Twitter account was suspended at some point in the early hours of this morning [Monday].

“We’ve had no email from Twitter offering any sort of explanation, but it seems likely to have been at the behest of a Daily Express hack called Siobhan McFadyen who’s been bombarding the company’s executives with complaints over the weekend.”

He added: “We apologise for the interruption to our normal service and hope it’ll all be sorted out soon. In the meantime, we understand if any readers feel alarm at how easily a mainstream media outlet can silence a major voice on one of the biggest social-media platforms in the world simply for pointing out when a newspaper has been telling lies.”

A spokesman for Twitter said they did not comment on individual accounts.

Siobhan McFadyen also refused to comment.
