Conservative Street Artist Sabo Banned from Twitter Permanently

Sabo, the conservative street artist who has given us so much entertainment, has been deplatformed from Twitter. Sabo is most known for his street posters that pop up in California whenever he feels inspired by the news. PJM reached out to Sabo for an interview.

PJM: I heard you got banned from Twitter. What happened? And will you miss Twitter or are you making a new account?

Sabo: I did. The people at Twitter didn't give me a reason or a time frame. So the suspension looks permanent on my end. For what it's worth I started another Twitter page that could be found @TheNewPunks. So far I have about 835 followers, which are so much fewer than the 32,000 I had before the ban. Who knows when they'll shut my new page down. Honestly, I couldn't care less.

PJM: How many years have you been doing street art and how did you get started?

Sabo: I've loved politics since I was 6 years old. I've been creating art since the early '90s. While I've for years created political art, I didn't start putting it out on the streets until about 2006. I really ramped up when we all thought Hillary would be coronated in 2008. Obama took care of all that. The first time I heard Obama speak I seriously wished there was something there to back, but I know politicians too well to let them pull a fast one on me. He said everything people wanted to hear without really saying anything.

PJM: What is your favorite work that you've done and why?

Sabo: Strangely enough I love the memories of when my hits were little more than ten-poster runs on a bike. It was a more simple time. The productions weren't that huge, I didn't need a large crew. Hell, I had no one to pay. I also got a serious kick out of the billboards we'd done recently. The scale was retarded, very stressful, dangerous but rewarding in terms of the outcomes.
