Like me, Tantek posts from his own website to Twitter.

So you can see everything @t has posted by looking at http://tantek.com/

What do you see there that could possibly warrant an account suspension?

Amazing. People like “You Know Who” don’t get suspended and people like Tantek do? WHAT is wrong with this platform? Or maybe I should be asking “what is not wrong about this platform?”

That’s ridiculous. I got my accounts suspended for posting haikus about trains once and did manage to get my them back, but it was a bit of a faff and took a couple of weeks. Hopefully @t will be able to rectify it too - he just has to jump through the hoops in the right order.

This is the best illustration of why you should not post to twitter directly (or any other platform). Post to your site instead and cross-post. That way when they decide you’re not worthy: a) you can prove otherwise and b) they only delete your participation in their platform

Shane Hudson

Whaaaat. Out of all the spam and nastiness on Twitter, they suspend Tantek? Ridiculous.

Utter bullshit, @Twitter / @TwitterSupport / @jack. Moves like this — whether automated or not — continue to degrade our collective faith in you, and in Twitter. This thing you’ve built is too important to piss on (and yet, you continue to do so).

Perhaps Flagging system is automated, flag content a few times and get account temp suspended. Handy if you want the @t username and try to force the account to be deleted

Joe Crawford

Once again; automated algorithms cannot marshal quality web content, only opinionated human moderators can.

Tantek @t is how I discovered Twitter and almost went for @ ‘p’:
