I was a little surprised to see I'd been suspended on Twitter the other day. Hadn't tweeted anything lately, and when I do, it's mostly headlines from TMP.

The Twitter info said it was probably an 'automatic' suspension due to its AI, and that I could appeal.

I appealed, and got a formal notice of suspension today.

I'm totally perplexed. I don't post anything controversial on Twitter. Oh well…

Twits run Twitter, so I find it rather unsurprising.

No instructions for further appeal. They sent a link to The Rules, with no explanation which one(s) they think I broke… link

Comments about arbitrary account suspensions for breaking unknown and/or highly subjective posting rules in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…..

I heard a joke on the radio.

"An announcement from Washington. YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are going to merge into one company. It's going to be called YouTwitFace."

Oh! The irony.

How bizarre! All the things under "Safety" are, I thought, why people don't use Twitter. They were features not things to be avoided.

Reminds me of being blocked in the Ultramodern forum here. Just happened with zero explanation.

Is that Twitter "Dawghouse", or Twitter "Talking to Gwen"?

The irony is something to savour😀

Did you say something nice about the U.S.?

dwight shrute17 Oct 2019 5:59 a.m. PST

someone has made a complaint about you … it happens …

Laugh? I nearly paid my mess bill!

You do make a good point, Fitz.

Could be collusion, Boss.

Perhaps you misunderstood the rules. Do you understand what you did? You must admit you did something wrong even if you don't know what you did and promise you won't do it again. Whatever it was you did. Are we clear?

I can't get Twitter to stop emailing me updates about what's new on Twitter, because suspended users can't change their settings… what a joke!

Legion 417 Oct 2019 1:20 p.m. PST

Never go to Twitter, only FB and here … From what I see and have heard … Frakk Twitter …

von Schwartz17 Oct 2019 5:59 p.m. PST

I will try to stay out of the dawghouse by referencing the first verse of the now rather famous and well known lyric from Ten Years After, "I'd Love to Change the World".
You will get the picture.

Old Contemptible18 Oct 2019 7:31 a.m. PST

FB and Twitter, the Devil's work. Stay away from both.

Wait, we weren't supposed to try to pick up Gwen? <sideways glance…>

Bigby Wolf21 Oct 2019 5:12 a.m. PST

@ninthdoc: Nope … try as I may, I just can't think of a comeback to that :-)

EiCB is the principle editor. He has a staff of people living in the Philippines who work as his back-up editors. There are apparently several, the number flexing based on activity. Gwen is sort of the principle/"first among equals."
