Another Twitter suspension

Your account (@voxday) is currently suspended. For more information, please visit Suspended Accounts.

I can't say the Trust & Safety Council were particularly helpful, as they did not provide any explanation why or ask me to remove any tweets. I can still access Twitter from that account and see my notifications, but can't actually tweet anything. It's just as well, I have too much to do to waste time on social media anyhow.

We apologize for this momentary disruption in the Daily Meme Wars, which will resume tomorrow in an email-only format.

If you want to be on the daily email list, sign up here.

The current system does not seem very educational in that regard.

Blogger tz November 09, 2017 8:37 PM  

@30 1. See SJWADD. It isn't about that, or that the "education" is to comply and to cause fear and terror. 2. If they actually declared the violation, then it could be evaded in various ways. It has to remain abstract and arbitrary, so that badthink people can be banned while goodthink people get a pass for equal violations.

I really am kind of pissed they suspended me. I used Twitter sort of as a huge bookmark folder, re-tweeting tweets with relevant info. I even toned it down a after a few 12 hr account locks. Hadn't argued with anyone. I guess it looked like a huge spam account with 99% retweets. Especially during the election.

TWITTER DISCRIMINATES AGAINST NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURAL PRACTICES

Anonymous Undocumented Civilizationalist November 09, 2017 9:31 PM  

This brings up something I’ve been thinking about: when do you abandon/retreat from a leftist stronghold and when do you stay and fight back? Stay on Twitter and use one’s account to support and defend the GE and Christianity and right wing causes or leave it? Leaving removed your voice of defense and support, but also hurts Twitter in the loss of a user.

Same goes for Facebook to a lesser degree as well as Goodreads, etc.

Blogger Noah B The Savage Gardener November 09, 2017 9:48 PM  

@43 IMO either of those is a viable strategy. What doesn't work is staying active on Twitter but moderating your speech to make sure they don't ban you, then groveling once they do bring down the hammer.

Twitter purged a large number of alt right accounts during the week after Trump was elected. My account was suspended but I was never given a reason why and never asked to delete any tweets. An email asking why my account was suspended went unanswered, and given the unhinged leftist moderation there I didn't bother trying to create a new account. My followers/following eventually disappeared but I can still log in, I just can't do anything with the account except look at my old tweets. I don't even have the option to delete tweets or to delete the account.

Possibly a trick to artificially inflate their user counts.

Gab is chugging along nicely and continues to grow. The people here are welcome to view it negatively, but VP is really the only segment of the alt-right world (besides Weev) that has excommunicated it.

It's disappointing that Gab squandered their chance at such a good time. They're positioning themselves to just be the platform for freaks and geeks. Torba simply wasn't mature enough at the time.

Blogger tublecane November 09, 2017 11:24 PM  

Does anybody keep track of places they've been suspended or banned from? I wish I would've, but there have been too many for me to count now.

Barely use Twitter, so there hasn't been much opportunity to be banned. I remember being kicked off Free Republic twice (once for badmouthing Churchill, last time for talking about the drug war). I recently realized I can't participate in the "Amazon community," and have no idea why.

None of which resulted from me trolling or not listening to warnings/disobeying orders. They all came out of the blue, as I recall.

What's important to remember about social media to gaming to anything its a dopamine hot and down time or its a great marketing tool for anyone but the policies in the current platforms are problematic, selective, dysfunctional to incoherent.

Blogger Rashadjin November 10, 2017 3:37 AM  

I'm less sanguine about this.

The only reason I found Vox Day was because I needed to figure out what the 'real' definition of alt-right was as a post-check on the colloquial use I'd absorbed. Which eventually went Sargon(Youtube) -> S. Molyneux + Vox Day(Youtube) -> some right-wing figure index/infos + Vox Popoli -> Oh, I should pay attention to this guy.

Which gave me a reason to check Twitter (-> Cernovich) which was how I'd snag the odd VD Periscope.

The internet isn't as interconnected as it use to be. Search engines and social media platforms are taking their attention/time monopolies and weaponizing it now. Lots of single points of failure to use and abuse which are being intensely used and abused.

To put this in perspective, how well would Alt✯Hero have done without Twitter? (Genuine Question)

If Converged Twitter was smart, they'd have killed you during the campaign, but no, it's all reactive. Badthink overload with the Nov 8 anniversary, so they culled the most egregious of it. Probably a combo of pointing out Jewish misbehavior and the Rebel art and 30K+ followers and growing.

On the bright side, Facebook is past its prime. On the less bright side, Twitter has an extended lease on life because of Trump weaponizing it. On the down side, Youtube is living in the gray area of not healthy looking but not particularly sickly looking either.

Sum that up into a shot in the dark, and we're looking at a scenario where globalists soon regain an information hegemony for ~5-10 years before alt-tech finds that 'right place and time' magic. It's happening too; see the feds hitting the RT network. It's going to backlash badly regarding Gen Z at some point, but that's a relative 'backlash badly'. Never underestimate the complacency of the sheep.

Anonymous Looking Glass November 10, 2017 4:26 AM  

OT but still related to pissing off Globalists & Leftists:

The "Trump Speech Dynamic" still holds. The bigger the venue, the "bigger" Trump gets.

"Instead, we will deal on a basis of mutual respect and mutual benefit. We will respect your independence and your sovereignty. We want you to be strong, prosperous, and self-reliant, rooted in your history, and branching out toward the future. That is how we will thrive and grow together, in partnerships of real and lasting value."

And some shots at the State Department & CIA. Trump pulled out a hammer, which probably explains the Roy Moore hit-piece timing. This is a vastly consequential speech, and the media is going to ignore it. Trump just clearly announced we're blowing up the WTO, we're not going to accept bribing your way into the American Market and we're going to enforce our IP rights. The speech and following policy implementations are going to have consequences for decades, and DC is going to be stuck trying to act all high & mighty about unprovable hearsay from 40 years ago from an utterly uncredible witness.

But, if you want to argue Trump is "alt-right", he's made the biggest Omni-national move in a very long time.

(Something of an aside, but Trump's foreign policy is actually American. Not wanna-be European Elite. We have lots of guns, we make lots of deals and we pull out the huge arsenal if there's a problem. Trump has done more in a year for "World Peace" than every think tank combined in the last 50 years.)

I think a platform that normal people as well as those of us on the right can enjoy would be very popular. And Twitter will help the endeavor by running people off their platform at increasing rates.
