I just hope the psycopaths who have been abusing Twitter’s reporting feature to harass and censor people don’t find this to be *too* useful.

Exactly what I expect. These new policies will be a living document of evolution. Truthers beware too, lol.

Last night Twitter randomly unblocked and unmuted a whole bunch of fucking nutjobs that I had blocked and muted including SPAMMERS.

It’s a hot mess out there.

re: #3 The Vicious Fergushka

Gotta love technology when it’s easier to throw out the old when introducing the new. I suspect this is an entirely new routine on Twitter’s side that couldn’t allow the import of old settings. Or perhaps it’s a fixable bug.

The tool, launched Thursday, allows victims to report harassment or for individuals to report on behalf of others.

So they built a powerful trolling tool into their anti-harassment policy. That’s some fine police work, Lew.

Now, people like Dana Loesch, “Chuck C. Johnson”, et al can get into a Twitter slap-fight with someone, and as soon as they’re made to look stupid their followers/sock puppet accounts will all report the person who schooled them for “harassment” and then we’re off and running.

Personally, I think if you’re worried about being harassed on Twitter, the best thing for you to do is not go on Twitter, but what do I know. It’s become entirely too stupid to use at this point, anyway.

I agree. It sure quickly evolved to a sewer in a whole lot of ways. Lots of turds floating in that pool. Just the fact that the Dolt From Planet Ginger is still spewing shit is all I need to know.

ThePeoplesCube after spamming the NY Times reporters personal info for days on end, got gently tapped with a 3-hour suspension.
