Twitter has once again banned the account of antisemitic activist Nick Fuentes after allowing him back on the platform yesterday.
The controversial podcaster was permanently banned from the site in July 2021 but his profile reappeared on the site on Tuesday.
Shortly following his account's restoration, Mr Fuentes implied in a post that the US is a “Zionist Occupied Government”.
Last October the 24-year-old white supremacist created a new Twitter account named “@spookygoblin8” in an attempt to rejoin the platform after Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of the site was finalised.
However, the new profile was swiftly removed.
The podcaster has made a series of racist and antisemitic remarks, and in November 2022 he attended a dinner with Kanye West and former US president Donald Trump at the latter’s Mar-a-Lago home.
The following month he was present on an episode of Alex Jones’ INFOWARS programme in which the rapper now known as Ye praised Adolf Hitler and denied the Holocaust.
In a 2019 video, he compared Holocaust victims to cookies being baked in an oven.

He was also present at the riot at the US Capitol on January 6th, 2021.
Mr Fuentes participated in the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia where several far-right groups were present and racist slogans were chanted.
“White supremacist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes has been reinstated to Twitter,” the Combat Antisemitism Movement charity tweeted in light of Tuesday's news.
“Online antisemitism is going mainstream, and turning into real-world attacks against Jews. @Twitter must take responsibility for its role in this trend, and remove Nick Fuentes from the platform,” they continued.

The Israel-based media watchdog Honest Reporting wrote to the social media site: "’We are committed to combating abuse motivated by hatred, prejudice or intolerance’ - Twitter’s Hateful Conduct Policy.
“Yet Nick Fuentes is back and his first tweet is to attack Jews by referencing Def Con 3. @TwitterSafety @elonmusk.”
