        I linked an article that explains how the RW can gang up and get someone suspended.

        I've been hitting the RW quite hard lately.

        I'm teling you, the RW is uberly twitter organized even ppl paid to tweet.

        We have the numbers, though.

        Everyone should set up more than one Twitter account, invite ppl to follow both accounts for just this reason.

        I had another account.  : ))

        It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

          So you're saying they suspended you because they found out that you had more than one account? That's standard TOS for a lot of forums and boards (DK is the same way, IIRC), but usually, they have to see you or have someone complain about you, to get to the point where they're checking your IP address to see if you're "more than one person". Was it just out of the blue, or do they give you warnings, etc.?

          Interesting. Makes you wonder just exactly how far "inside" Twitter some of those people really are.

            If a gang gangs up and all block a twitter account, the twitter computer suspends the account automatically.

            The RW is doing this to tweeters if they don't like what they tweet.

            If you read the link above, I think it explains this.

            But beware, if you block a lot of ppl all at once, you can also get suspended.

            Oddly, I haven't been that active in the last couple of days, that's why I suspect a gang block attack by the RW.

            It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.
