Christians quickly took to Twitter to express shock over the fact that the satire site was suddenly blocked.

It didn't take long for Twitter to reverse course, informing The Babylon Bee that the suspension was an error and that the satire site's account was "flagged as spam by mistake."

Seth Dillon, CEO of The Babylon Bee, expressed his initial surprise over the suspension to Faithwire, and explained that Twitter quickly took action to remedy the issue.

“Fortunately, they quickly reinstated our account and apologized for the ‘mistake,'" he said. "So we’re back on Twitter, at least for the time being."

Within an hour of the suspension, Twitter indeed contacted The Babylon Bee to apologize and restore the account.

"We have systems that find and remove multiple automated spam accounts in bulk, and yours was flagged as spam by mistake," the letter read. "Please note that it may take an hour or so for your follower and following numbers to return to normal."

Despite the fix, it didn't take long for critics to cite the incident as evidence of bias. We'll have to wait and see what happens next, but for now the Bee is back! For their part, the satire site chose to respond to the debacle with...comedy.

"We are back," the Bee tweeted. "Twitter destroyed our headquarters with a drone strike, but we are being assured it was an honest mistake."
