Youtube may suspend accounts, temporarily or permanently, from their social networking service. Suspensions of high-profile individuals from Youtube are unusual and when they occur often attract attention in the media. In some cases, suspensions or bans may result from efforts by large numbers of Youtube users to deplatform controversial speakers or to suppress speech with which they disagree.


Users who are permanently suspended from Youtube, based on alleged violations of Youtube's Terms of Service, are not told which of their tweets were the cause; they are told only that their accounts will not be restored, and which of Youtube's rules the company says were violated. In addition to community guideline policy decisions, the Youtube DMCA and spam detection systems are sometimes manipulated or abused by groups of users attempting to force a user's suspension.
