My last post celebrated an event that I was beginning to think would never come: the re-activation of my “permanently suspended” @realMadSquid Twitter account. As only one such reactivation out of four Mad Squid Productions® accounts that Twitter has surreptitiously suspended for vague reasons, it’s not a complete victory. But it is a major battle won. So, I wrote about it.
But now I want to take a closer look at the three tweets that Twitter claims were the cause of my suspension in in the first place. How do I know that these tweets were the offending tweets? Because Twitter told me so. When I stumbled back into my newly reactivated account, quite by accident, they cited these three tweets as my offending posts, and required that I delete them before I would be returned to full functionality.
I obliged, begrudgingly, because if anything is made clear by these three tweets, it’s just exactly how biased Twitter was being against the LEFT when applying suspensions, and therefore also when addressing appeals. My @realMadSquid account was suspended for over two years for the following three tweets. Have a look at them, and then I’ll see you again on the other side of the images for some further analysis:
As you can clearly see from tweet 1 of 3, I was replying to someone who was being hateful and targeting abuse against me! Notice that they ignored @donrondel berating me and hounding me about how I’m supposedly a Socialist, and that I don’t understand my military service or my government. So, I got a little bit snippy, and pointed out my education, and my belief in the lack of education on the part of my debate opponent.
His violations of the Twitter TOS apparently didn’t matter. Like, at all. Because this was enough for Twitter to silence my veteran owned small business. The right wing radical gets a pass, and the left wing, college educated, decorated veteran just goes away.
It’s also worth noting that when I did finally receive my reactivation, I was missing at least 2,000 followers who were following my count at the time of my suspension.
Stand by to stand by. –Mad Squid
