     Twitter has restored the account of a popular left wing activist, apparently following an intervention from the social network's European Vice President
     The Rachael_Swindon account, which is run by 43-year-old mum from Swindon Rachael Cousins, is prolific - tweeting around 40 times a day with more than 60,000 followers
      But it was suspended yesterday, with Twitter suggesting the action was related to their "Abusive Behaviour Policy"
     The Mirror understands Ms Cousins was told the account was suspended for violating rules against "hateful conduct
    "   It followed a complaint about a tweet where she had apparently quoted a Labour councillor using profanity
       It's understood the councillor complained about about being made late because someone had taken their life on a train line
     Ms Cousins' account was later un-suspended after a review.  Ms Cousins told the Mirror: "I'm pleased Twitter responded to the thousands of calls to have my unfair suspension lifted
     "I'm looking forward to taking the fight to the Tories more than ever."  Meanwhile, Twitter's European CEO Bruce Daisley suggested he had personally stepped in to get the account reinstated
     In response to a complaint from a user about Ms Cousins' suspension, Mr Daisley wrote: "I got the account unsuspended sweet cheeks
    "  He went on to write: 'I get a lot of people @-ing me about account suspensions
    Generally there's always a reason but mistakes do happen."    But he added: "As a rule if your use of Twitter takes pride in getting blocked by people, I'd strongly advise you try to think about communicating more constructively
    Love you x"  Ms Cousins' Twitter profile says she is "blocked by 87 Tory MPs & Right Said Fred
