Instagram has reinstated Tommy Robinson's account and said it was deleted in error, amid a growing debate on whether far-right activists should continue to have their content hosted by major social media companies.
Robinson had held up the suspension of his account on the Facebook-owned photo-sharing service as evidence that major corporations were censoring his output. The suspension came the day after most major social media platforms decided to ban the US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his InfoWars site from their networks.
"They have now deleted my Instagram account. Facebook will soon close us down," Robinson, who has just been released from prison, told his Facebook followers.
