Twitter said it had suspended the account of Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas Pliego due to offensive behavior.

The social media company did not elaborate on why Salinas was banned, but said in its post that the account may not engage in situations of harassment directed against one person or incite others to do so. 

Last week, Salinas, owner of Banco Azteca SA, got into an argument with Mexican journalist Denise Dresser, commenting on her appearance on Twitter, which the social network said violated her rules.

A spokesman for Salinas declined to comment.

Salinas said on his Telegram account that he would use his Telegram, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok accounts until he resolved the issues with Twitter.

The billionaire and his family are ranked 153rd on the Forbes list of billionaires, and their net worth is estimated at $13.5 billion. Earlier this month, he said he was considering buying Citigroup's consumer banking business in Mexico, known as Citibanamex.
