I Was Booted Off Twitter, And The Timing Couldn’t Be Better

I was suspended from the Twitter X platform

I joined Twitter in 2007. I was suspended from Twitter in 2023.

Why I Was Suspended from Twitter

I was booted off Twitter for not following their rules.

What rules? I’m not sure. The company didn’t offer specifics. So I appealed it. And their response was not human-like. It was probably a robot specializing in canned email responses.

That said, I think I know why my Twitter account was suspended.

Don’t worry, it wasn’t for anything I did or said that could’ve been seen as racist (I never do that!). And I certainly didn’t try to scam anybody.

Hey…if you’re that curious about my Twitter suspension, drop me an email. I’ll share the likely reason for it. Probably. Depends who you are.

I Was Upset With My Suspension From Twitter

I had built a nice following on Twitter. And I got some traction from the articles and direct advice I gave over the years. So I was mad that I wouldn’t be able to share my franchise stuff there. Plus, I liked Twitter.

With that in mind, one of the reasons was Twitter was my go-to source for breaking news. “Was” being the key word here. Not so much now.

I also liked Twitter because in the early days I was able to connect and meet (in-person) people of influence. And a lot of them have become friends. Friendships that include lots of mutual admiration and business networking. Plus, we help each other a lot.

Finally, Twitter was a terrific fit for my personality. And also how I roll; short, quick spirts of activity and energy. Oh well.

The Garbage Dump That Is Twitter

Things have really changed at the San Francisco company. For the worse.

Truth be told, I haven’t been enjoying Twitter for the past couple of years.

But I became so used to sharing my articles, thoughts and opinions there, I was doing it automatically. With less and less results.

In addition, it’s become more difficult to engage with people on the platform. But the worst part of Twitter (X), was (is) the discourse.

Between nasty political “discussions,” and out-of-control conspiracy theories about vaccines and the 2020 election happily given steroid-type boosting from none other than the owner of Twitter, the platform has become a cesspool of whatever is in a cesspool. Cess?

That’s why I’ve been able to quickly get over getting my main account suspended from Twitter. And as I said, the timing couldn’t have been better.

Because cesspool.
