A journalist who tweeted about the suicide of a journalist in the UK was banned from Twitter for six months, the site announced.
The journalist, who did not want to be named, tweeted: “I have lost my job, my family, and a friend.
My life is in danger and I’m not alone.
I am scared for my future and my family.”
The tweet was written by journalist David Aylward, who is based in the US and who tweeted that the journalist had been found dead.
Twitter said in a statement: “David Aylman was banned for 6 months, and he will not be able to access Twitter until further notice.
“He will not have access to the site until the ban is lifted. “
We are committed in ensuring a safe and respectful workplace for everyone.” “
He will not have access to the site until the ban is lifted.

Mr Ayllande has since been reinstated and said he was “totally relieved” at Twitter’s decision.
Twitter suspended Mr Alynard for six weeks for the tweet.
“It was really difficult for me to get back on Twitter, because I was on a suspension and my tweet had been removed,” he told BBC News.
“I’m really, really thankful that they did that, but I still felt really hurt.”
Twitter said it “regularly removes accounts that violate our policies”.
Twitter suspended Ayllander’s account for six days for violating its policy.
“Aylward has been suspended from Twitter indefinitely,” the company said in its statement.
Aylright has been a vocal critic of Twitter’s policies.” “
This is an isolated incident and will not happen again.
Aylright has been a vocal critic of Twitter’s policies.”
Twitter suspended Twitter for seven days for violations of its policies.
Twitter has been criticized for failing to take action to prevent this type of behaviour.
Mr Ayleard is the third journalist to be suspended by Twitter.
In December, Twitter suspended the accounts of the BBC’s Nick Robinson and the New York Times’ Glenn Greenwald for violating the company’s policies against “misleading content”.
Twitter said that it would suspend Mr Aylesard for “a period of time up to six months”, and it was not immediately clear how long he was banned.
