A black pro-life coalition had its Twitter account shut down after they announced plans on the social networking site to protest the NAACP.

“Twitter shut us down,” said Stephen Broden, a spokesman for the National Black Prolife Coalition and Dallas-area pastor.

Their trouble started on Jan. 28 when Leroy Dobb, the group’s social media manager, sent out a tweet promoting the demonstration against the NAACP at the Image Awards.

“We sent out our first tweet at 9:17 a.m.,” he told Fox News. “Eight tweets later we were shut down.”
