Twitter Is Run By Morons

Which we all knew, but anyway.

Unfortunately I didn't capture my original appeal, in which I jokingly asked, more or less, what they have against cold oatmeal. And their support system is worthless; once you submit a request it disappears, and you have no information about it whatsoever.

But unsurprisingly, I got this today:

Your account has been suspended and will not be restored because it was found to be violating Twitter's Terms of Service, specifically the Twitter Rules against hateful conduct.

It is against our rules to promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease.

Additionally, if we determine that the primary purpose of an account is to incite harm towards others on the basis of these categories, that account may be suspended without prior warning.


Of course, all of this is a deliberate lie. I never did any of this. What I actually did was use a word they, all by themselves, have decided is offensive. They never say that; the only way you can find out is by getting your account suspended. I have responded again:

I have been suspended in error.


I write in reference to your rejection my earlier appeal: Case# 0109080114: Appealing an account suspension - @PixyMisa [ ref:_00DA0K0A8._5004A1e3bMe:ref ]

You write: "Your account has been suspended and will not be restored because it was found to be violating Twitter's Terms of Service, specifically the Twitter Rules against hateful conduct."

I have NEVER engaged in hateful conduct on Twitter. Not in 11 years and 42 thousand tweets.

"It is against our rules to promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease."

I have NEVER promoted violence against or threatened ANYONE, not on any of these bases, not on any basis. No matter how broad your definition of attack may be, even down to mere criticism, I have NEVER attacked anyone on any of those bases.

You continue: "Additionally, if we determine that the primary purpose of an account is to incite harm towards others on the basis of these categories, that account may be suspended without prior warning."

Not only has it not been the PRIMARY purpose of my account to "incite harm towards others on the basis of these categories", I have NEVER done so.

I ask you to reconsider.


I do not expect a more reasonable response this second time.

2 You used the R-word, and that offends the Twitter Admins on a personal level.

3 Yep.  I know what I did, I just want them to say it.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
