Another reminder that conservatives have constructed their proud little social media fortresses on (somebody else’s) sand:
So whose Twitter accounts do get shut down? Oh, please.
You can flag any Twitter account as a spammer with the click of a button. Enough such complaints, and the account is deleted without warning.
Not surprisingly, organized leftists have been using this tool to “mass report” non-spamming conservative pundits such as Chris Loesch when they get sick of arguing with them online and because, as one Tweeter said, it’s “funny seeing conservatives go crazy.”
Loesch’s account was falsely tagged as spam. It was automatically blocked and his follower list erased.
Then it was unblocked (with apologies from Twitter) after Loesch and his supporters complained.
Then, after the button-pushing game started up once more, it was blocked again...
