Twitter shows no mercy
In a setback, the attempts to get my Twitter accounts reopened have largely failed. Dino, the account rep, is indicating that I can only reopen one account. In imposing these sanctions, Twitter is making clear that it wants to ignore the hundreds of people who were following me on the other accounts.
This effectively makes social networking impossible as Twitter can close your accounts without much recourse. Any friends you make, can be wiped out by the arbitrary and seemingly unappealable decision of an admin.
It is unfortunate that our ability to communicate freely appears to increasingly come under the control of private censors who want to tightly control and regulate what was once an open forum known as the internet.
I am not sure how much use I can make of the one account I have remaining, however, I will work with what I have for as long as I can. I am not optimistic about my ability to effectively tweet at this point.
The reopening of one single account with ominous overtones is of little consolation.
Update: I have made several posts, like this one, about my problems with Twitter. They have once again closed all of my accounts. I am again appealing their decision. The ability of a single admin to repeatedly close Twitter accounts undermines the purpose of Twitter.
