Given all the dislike you can see on Twitter at any given moment, you’d think you could do anything short of creating @DailyRacialSlur and stand unbanned. But occasionally, Twitter < i> does enact some justice. It’s just that their chassis of justice happens to be totally astounding. Make the time …

Someone Was Restricted For Saying They Wanted To Bone Tony The Tiger

In 2015, it became a flowing joke in the furry society to flirt with the Tony the Tiger account on Twitter because, well, look at the chap. He’s strong, committed to living a healthful life, good with kids, is apparently rolling in Frosted Flakes money … blaze, we’d hook up with him too, under the right circumstances.

But because this is the internet, there’s no joke that can’t be taken too far. Tweets soon departed from “I involve more of daddy Tiger in my life” to blunt commentaries like “Send dick pics” and “Do the same happening in my speak but not with milk please”( you can figure out different contexts there for yourself ). The poverty-stricken intern moving @realtonytiger, understandably not missing the mentions of a family friendly cereal mascot to overflow with hardcore swine erotica, originated impeding furries. This led to the official Chester Cheetah account opening Cheeto-dusted arms to anyone looking for a brand-new beau, because modern capitalism is much stupider than anyone could have ever predicted.

In the middle-of-the-road of this prurient madness, Alex Boivin was sided a week-long proscription from Twitter for saying “I’d fuck that tiger.”

Not grrrrrreat .

Boivin wasn’t even part of the furry onslaught — he plainly witnessed a promoted Tweet pop up in his feed and has been determined that he wanted to f- … mess with the ad. Meanwhile, people who said acts like “I demand you to spew that milk all over my cereal and then let me nut while I watch you eat it” exited unpunished — although maybe penalty is exactly what required, so perhaps that’s for the best.

Boivin pointed out what’s going to be a guiding tendency in this section: While he was banned for representing what was far from the filthiest fornication joke at the expense of a corporate mascot, countless other beings were allowed to continue bawling about the need to commit genocide in America without so much as a slap on the wrist. Maybe we need to get them to sexually persecute Tony the Tiger? That … that can’t be the mixture, right?

An Irishman Was Suspended For Tweeting “Cracker”

In Ireland, saying “That’s a cracker! ” makes “That’s great.” We guess that it also literally symbolizes “That is a cracker” in food-based contexts. But in America, for the benefit of our Irish books, “cracker” is a “derogatory” term for white people, in particular poor white people. And Twitter’s inability to parse context led to the dangling of Irishman Danny Morrison for a period of 24 hours that were probably moderately muddling to him.

Someone had tweeted two pictures of Adele at Morrison for reasonableness that Irish correspondents were woefully inadequate in failing to establish, and Morrison responded to one with “That’s a cracker, ” likely because he’s an Adele fan. This earned him a proscription and a flummoxed Irish news article .

The Belfast Telegraph
It … was a slow news period in Ireland .

It’s not clear who reported Morrison, but the whole dumb thing would be like if you entered onto foreign social media and told somebody to “eat my short-spokens, ” only to be suspended since they are thought it was a serious threat. At least Twitter has a strict no-nonsense program toward insinuations when they happen to be attached to photographs of Adele. Otherwise, go nuts.

A Nobel Prize Winner Was Suspended Because Twitter Thought He Was A Spam Bot

When 85 -year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu signed up for Twitter, it seemed like it should have been a marketing coup for the pulpit. Who wouldn’t want to follow the deep thoughts and what we could only presuppose were the dankest of memes from a lover who helped intent Apartheid? Within the next few hours, he had racked up hundreds of partisans, sent out got a couple of charming tweets, and then, uh, found himself postponed.

Oh no, was this like when your granddad tried to use Twitter and followed everyone he saw before accidentally retweeting a dozen Wendy’s ads? Undoubtedly, an out-of-control Tutu, booze on social media supremacy, followed, wait for it, 30 entire people before being frozen. It’s a ponder they didn’t compile him devote a few weeks at social media etiquette clique before allowing him back.

Avery
“Plus, he remains trying to push the book he wrote with some spammer with 14 identities.”

Twitter overruled the adjournment a few hours later and defended, claiming the retired archbishop had accidentally been caught in a spam bot clean-up( apparently targeted at bots that were trying to sell cheap ballet outfits ). But Tutu now exclusively Tweets sporadically and follows roughly no one, like a friendless social media ronin. We hope you’re joyful, Twitter. By mishandling the history of a famed human rights organizer, you’ve prevented countless good beings from ever having Desmond Tutu like their stale photocopy of a prank that another person told a year and a half ago.

WeRateDogs Got Shut Down For “Impersonating” An Account That Was Stealing Its Tweets

WeRateDogs is an account that rates hounds. Spoiler alert: Every dog is a good bird-dog. It’s not a complicated system.

It’s an adorable oasis in Twitter’s ever-churning ocean of frenzy. So naturally, Twitter formerly took it down for a very stupid rationale.

Someone has been determined that they wanted the vogue of WeRateDogs, but didn’t want to have to go through all the bothersome campaign of actually reflecting up a compelling, wholesome thought, because that’s, like, employ and nonsense. So they just started plagiarizing WeRateDogs’ Tweets and putting them on Instagram. Then they filed a report on Twitter accusing WeRateDogs of parody, and amazingly, Twitter said, “Yup, that checks out” and killed the note. It’s nice to know that one of the most significant social media scaffolds on the planet has all the investigate skills of the investigators in shitty horror movies about name theft.

Apparently, in addition to not recognizing a popular account on their own website( 180 k partisans at the time ), mods didn’t think to take five seconds to check which account’s poles came firstly before backing against their own user. Luckily, the robber was also category enough to email the owner of WeRateDogs to explain what they were doing and why, because it turns out that when your profession proposal is to plagiarize a social media account about bird-dogs, you might not be criminal matters mastermind you dreamed you were. WeRateDogs was eventually rebuilt, and everyone was able to get back to good dogs.

A Parody Account Ridiculing Twitter’s Terrible Harassment Policies Was Shut Down For Harassing Twitter

A good way to adjudicate any sort of arbiter is by looking at how open they are to being parodied. So let’s look at how Twitter directed @TrustySupport, which satirized the platform’s inability to handle molestation by masquerading as a fruitless Twitter customer support account.

To give you a sense of their hue, @TrusySupport formerly tweeted, “We’ve sounded Black Users are often threatened& hassled on @Twitter. So @jack uttered these emojis[ of black hands ]. Problem solved! #BlackHistoryMonth #BHM. ” Critical, but not exactly profanity-riddled tirades.


As you can see from the retweets and likes, it lighted the internet on fire .

They first ran afoul of Twitter’s parody policy, so they had to explicitly call themselves a parody and eliminate some marked likeness. Other, nastier accounts were get away with using trademarks, but whatever, that’s rational — Twitter didn’t crave people mistaking them for a real foundation report, but the latter are fine with being lampooned as long as it was obvious. Cool, right?

But then Twitter hung them again regardless, claiming they appeared the word “support” might perplex people. You know, maybe it’d perform them think it was an official customer services account for … Trusty. Because oaths necessary their own customer service, so people can check to make sure they’re have them properly. They did eventually overturn the expulsion, but @TrustySupport is now become, probably because they got sick of dealing with Twitter. One could even say they were … bothered off the platform.

The peculiar component is that this wasn’t someone at Twitter rubber-stamping a exclusion onto one of several hundred accounts they had to look at. The two sides had a tedious dialogue, and had apparently come to an agreement before Twitter changed course. Was Twitter trying to enticement @TrustySupport into a spurious sense of security? Do they experience the excite of the exclusion hunt? Are they purely super inept when it comes to this sort of happening? It’s … it’s likely the last one.

Oh, and all this fuss was over an history that had 826 adherents. We get that Twitter is a big company full of people with all sorts of different responsibilities, but maaaybe they have better things they should be doing. Like putting this level of thought and personal reaction into harassment reports? Or nipping the glance of all the buttons again, whichever.

Adele’s People Restricted Her For Tweeting Drunk

This story is a little different, but hey, you’ve “ve earned it”. Mega pop star and bad bar Adele are applied to drunk-tweet, and totally got busted for it by her handling, like the fame account of your mothers catching you picking the lock on their alcohol cabinet.

According to the singer of “Hello” and presumably other drudgery that we’ve long forgotten because “Hello” has been so relentlessly instructed into our chiefs that the concept of other carols has become a unclear generalization, she used to Tweet while stoned, and nearly said a few happens that would’ve been bad for her epitome. She no longer glass, but she still isn’t allowed to Tweet instantly. If she wants to, say, thank someone for being called a cracker, she has to write the textbook out for her team to look at and berth — < i> if they approve of it. Since it’s unlikely that groupings of beings dedicated wholly to compiling Adele look as remarkable as possible would sign off on “Taylor Swift? More like Taylor SLOW. Because she’s DUMB, ” don’t expect her to be involved in any internet beef anytime soon.

But if you’re rightfully frantic to participate some unfiltered Adele, you can try to track down the secret personal account she claims she has. Likely it’s full of crude offends alongside the quirky gave analysis of why Adele’s music is so great.
