Virginia Congressman Ben Cline is calling out Twitter.

The lawmaker says the social media giant "regularly censors individuals and entities with conservative viewpoints."

Cline said he and his colleagues wrote to Twitter's CEO to demand that he commit to applying the company's content policies fairly.

"Such examples include the de-platforming of a sitting U.S. President, suspending the New York Post's official account for reporting on then-Democrat nominee Joe Biden's son's scandals shortly before the election, and censoring many other conservative voices, while not applying the same standards to liberal-progressive content," the letter said.

The letter was signed by 13 members of Congress, including Cline. Those individuals are as followed:

  • Claudia Tenney
  • Cathy McMorris-Rodgers
  • Earl L. "Buddy" Carter
  • Robert E. Latta
  • Gus M. Bilirakis
  • Russ Fulcher
  • Dan Bishop
  • Ben Cline
  • Jake LaTurner
  • Michael Cloud
  • Tim Walberg
  • Bill Huizenga
  • Madison Cawthorne
