#TwitterGulag Reprise: How to Get Blocked and Reported for Spam
What sort of wingnut gets their account suspended, then whines about being unjustly imprisoned in #TwitterGulag by the super-secret conspiracy led by yours truly?
When I happened to click on a Twitter user’s profile today, I discovered the answer to this poignant question.
Our tale begins when I saw the following retweet appear in one of my Tweetdeck timelines:
Yes, it’s that same brain-dead conspiracy theory again; they’re still retweeting it like mindless parrots. But when I clicked the link for “Retweeted by @guy_next_to_me,” I discovered that “@guy_next_to_me” (aka “YzzOne”) had recently escaped from the dreaded Twitter Gulag after 48 days of torture, starvation, and forced labor … no, wait, that was the real Soviet Gulag. This guy was unable to tweet, which is just like a Gulag only if you’re nuts.
After reading his triumphant tweet about the delicious taste of freedom, I clicked his name and took a look at what this former Gulag inmate was tweeting right before his dastardly unjust suspension by commie leftist masterminds led by yours truly.
Here’s what I found…
Why in the world would anyone block and report this wingnut for spam? It’s a real head-scratcher.
Notice that the profile images for almost all the tweets posted above are now showing up blank. That’s because after being exposed in this post, “YzzOne” deleted all the evidence of his spamming from Twitter — but the tweets still show up here, obviously.
