I’m just beside myself over my Twitter suspension, and I thought it would make feel better to articulate here, publicly, that Twitter’s charge against me of having a pattern of behavior of Hateful Conduct is just simply and unequivocally FALSE. I have NEVER engaged in Hateful Conduct, on Twitter or otherwise. I have NEVER targeted anyone on the basis of race or their membership in ANY protected class. And, I have certainly NEVER attacked or threatened anyone or incited violence against anyone. This suspension is just completely unjustified. There is NO evidence that supports a Twitter suspension on the basis of a pattern of behavior of Hateful Conduct.
The last lock out was also allegedly for Hateful Conduct. And, that lock out was also completely unjustified. I appealed that lock out, but I ended up stopping the appeal process and ended up simply deleting the tweet, but I think now that this was a mistake. I should have continued my appeal. The tweet was a tweet from October, 2019, where I was simply stating that someone, whom I did not name, had been harassing me. The journalist Cathy Young actually corroborated my claim as valid. It simply cannot be Hateful Conduct to point out a fact — the fact, the truth that I had been the victim of harassment, not the perpetrator. So, there is NO pattern of behavior of Hateful Conduct.
I think I know what happened. Not long ago I made the decision to unblock everyone whom I had reported and blocked, many of whom had been punished by Twitter for whatever violations of the rules. I think this was a huge mistake. I think when those persons realized that I had unblocked them they just went to town, reporting every single tweet of mine that they possibly could for Hateful Conduct. And, it’s no big secret that Twitter is not a fan of mine.
I am being silenced. That is the long and short of it. I am being silenced because I have legitimate defamation claims against MANY blue check mark public figures with millions of followers. And, they are Twitter’s bread and butter, so if they want me gone, Twitter is going to get rid of me. I think that’s the simple truth of the matter.
I will keep you all posted on my latest appeal. I don’t have a lot of hope at this point, but I do feel that I still need my Twitter account to save my life and career, so I’m going to keep fighting to retain my Twitter account for as long as I can.
The fact of the matter is that I still desperately need my Twitter account to save my life and human and civil rights academic and legal careers. That’s just the honest to God truth. I’m feeling beside myself at the moment over the suspension. Yes, I have other venues, but nothing has been as effective as Twitter and nothing will be. Yes, of course, Twitter played a role in my demise, but it has also been my primary means of getting the truth out about the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale. The only reason why I have any chance at all to save my life and career is because of Twitter. That’s just the simple truth.
Also, Twitter literally saved my life by providing me an outlet for my despair and by connecting me to supporters and fellow cancelleds and falsely accused. Twitter put me in touch with journalists who worked tirelessly to reveal the truth about my plight. No Twitter, no Cathy Young.
So, given this state of affairs, I am more than prepared to grovel like Pete Buttigieg in front of Michael Harriot of The Root. Ha ha ha ha. I couldn’t resist. But, seriously, I am prepared to accept whatever restrictions that Twitter Support wishes to impose to get my account reinstated. I am happy to stop using the @ function all together. I am happy to no longer name individuals at all. Whatever it takes.
