If you like my work, buy me a virtual cup of coffee at Ko-Fi
Yesterday, I put up a tweet on twitter questioning the security of the app Zoom and a link to a source I found on LinkedIn showing how “zoombombing” was used for anti-Semitic purposes. Today, I found I was suspended from twitter because of that tweet, but twitter won’t tell me why.
Rather than give in and delete the tweet, I appealed it so I don’t have access to my twitter account until however long it takes for twitter to review my appeal. My twitter account is still accessible by others, but if you tweet to me, I won’t able to answer. I checked the account via a Shadowban Tester and it said everything was fine. Go figure.
I searched for my account from another account (Shhhh) and found others can access it.
Of course, anything anyone tweets to me will go unanswered until twitter sorts things out (however long that will take).
I wouldn’t mind so much, except I didn’t say or do anything wrong. Twitter’s algorithm must be wonky. I can only hope that a human being will see this and decide it was a mistake. If my tweet somehow violated some rule, then I can only conclude twitter is crazy.
