Fox Business Network anchor Maria Bartiromo complained on the air Wednesday about losing Twitter followers, reports Justin Baragona of The Daily Beast.

Baragona reports, “Interviewing Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO)—who recently wrote a front-page op-ed in the nation’s fourth-largest paper claiming he’s been ‘muzzled’—Bartiromo agreed with the conservative lawmaker that they need to tell social media companies they won’t “bow down to the woke mob.”

“‘Yeah, I had—right around the election—one million followers on Twitter,’ a somewhat frantic Bartiromo exclaimed. ‘Now I have under 900,000. Literally in a couple of weeks. I don’t know what’s going on there!’

“It would appear that what’s going on is that following the insurrectionist riot that former President Donald Trump incited, Twitter purged tens of thousands of QAnon conspiracy accounts from its platform, prompting many conservatives to immediately whine about their lost followers.”
