I don’t know whether it was because I criticized my alma mater Guilford College for deleting virtually every worthwhile major and keeping the fluff such as gender and grievance studies or because I tried to retweet something from Twitchy about Chuck Schumer ignoring COVID now that it seems Biden is the winner but I’m lock out of Twitter.
It says I may need to “complete some additional tasks” if I want to resume using Twitter. Does that mean I have to go to Jack’s re-education camp like Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge forced upon the Cambodians?
UPDATE: Below is the email I got from Twitter regarding the locking of my account and the reason.
What it says it that I shared “privately produced/distributed intimate media”. When I follow the link, I find that I am being accused of reposting something that violated the non-consensual nudity policy.
It seems that a number of people have had their Twitter accounts locked for reposting a link to an article on election results and a mathematical test called Benford’s Law. It is a test to see whether numbers are naturally occurring or manually manipulated as with “ballot box stuffing”.
What prompted me to repost the link was a report on Instapundit.com by Prof. Glenn Reynolds that Facebook had refused a link to the article every time he tried to post it. I, like many others, then posted it to Twitter. We all got our accounts fraudulently locked by the powers that be at Twitter under the pretext that we were posting non-consensual nudity. I’m surprised that they didn’t say we were posting “kiddie porn”.
UPDATE II: Well, not total bastards. I just got this when I appealed.
