Fox Business News host Maria Bartiromo announced on Thursday evening that she was leaving Twitter and joining Parler over the former social media platform's censorship policies.

"This is the same group who abused power in 2016. I will be leaving soon and going to Parler," Bartiromo wrote in a tweet. "Please open an account on @parler right away."

Bartiromo's comments come shortly after she had multiple tweets flagged by the social media platform for being "misleading about an election or other civic processes."

On Wednesday night, she shared an article published by The Federalist that had a headline which read, "Yes, Democrats Are Trying To Steal The Election in Michigan, Wisconsin, And Pennsylvania."

The host of Fox Business network's Mornings with Maria had another tweet flagged by Twitter on Thursday morning.

"4am dump/Wisconsin 65,000 votes 100% for Biden 4am dump/Michigan 138,499 votes 100% 4Biden," she wrote in the tweet. "AZ poll workers forcing voters to use sharpies thereby invalidated ballots. Trump leading in GA, NC, PA, WI, MI & they stop counting" before the vote fairy visits overnight..."
