So, Jack Dorsey decided to re-person me, after a month-long suspension for pointing out that he had verified a literal jihadist, i.e. Bilal Abdul Kareem, who was embedded in Syria with Nur din al-Zinki. I returned today to a a DM from a Justice Democrat-the gentleman seen in the source URL-threatening me.
A fine website you have there, Jack. It's a wonder conservatives aren't more supportive.
I was an actual computer programmer/analyst in a past life. I've been on Twatter since October 2016.
I'm here to tell you that they've "jacked" [pardon the pun] their software up so much that they probably don't even know what it's doing half the time.
The reason for this is what you're describing in your thread - they're shadowbanning and controlling the speech of those they don't like [mostly on the Right].
I have nicknames for some of their obviously broken pieces. Did you know there was a time for a couple of months when you could "like" a tweet 5,6,7 times? This particular glitch comes and goes. It's related to them trying to prevent "liking" and "retweeting" and making it look like a random software bug.
It's not, because it's replicable.
Another one is "deadheading" [taken from diverting a railroad car into a siding off the main line] - your tweet goes into a "siding" and only a few people can see it - or no one but you can see it.
It's interesting to explore the behavior of those kind of tweets.
Ride to the sound of the guns.
Got bad news for you.
They're almost certainly reading your DMs. It's just a "thing" that system administrators get to do.
I’ve been suspended four times. Once for pointing out a lesbian was grooming a 16 year old at a march. Last time for saying Islam is a terrorist religion. Once for posting the louder with Crowder gender fluid guy who posed as a computer.
@Jack’s gonna get his butt legislated.
The proximate cause for my initial shadow ban, which was the first domino in the chain of events that resulted in my ban, was me pointing out to Jack that he had verified Bilal Abdul Kareem, a literal jihadist embedded with Nur al-din Al-Zinki, a Syrian group that’s akin to ISIS.
During my shadow ban, I had to communicate almost exclusively via DM.
To be fair, Jack also verified the little fag fascisti Brownshirt "Suck My" Hogg.
BTW - it's glorious to type that out here - knowing that I'd get suspended the same day for tweeting that over there...
Considering what Owen Benjamin experienced as a result of tangling with Hogg, it's a safe bet to say you wouldn't last long.
Twitter-sanctioned "targeted harassment" is something to behold.
I've got 20+ years in the game - and it was difficult for me to withstand it...
