Twitchy told you about the plights of @FreeMarket_US and @ChrisLoesch — both knocked off Twitter unjustly and then reinstated by Twitter after a surge of support from fellow conservatives online. The fight continues. Tonight, conservative activists publicized the suspension of @shanewright22.
There are more still trapped:
Vocal conservative social-media activists helped bring the infestation of “progressive” flag-spam abusers to Twitter’s attention. Leftists scoffed at #twittergulag, but Twitter responded by reinstating many accounts.
As Dana Loesch reported — in a smackdown of ill-informed Yahoo.com reporter Chris Wilson – the Leftists’ maliciously coordinated blocks of conservative users are real and the subject of Twitter investigation:
From Twitter, bold my emphasis:
You’ve been unsuspended, and I’ve asked the team to monitor the account [...] we are still investigating the best ways to work on this …
the coordinated blocks may still trip the automated systems, but we will try to stay a step ahead
You may also refer to my note that coordinated blocks could trip the automated spam systems …
Please note your follower/following counts maybe a little screwy for an hour or so after suspension/reinstatement. Thanks for your patience.
… It was suspended and it was a coordinated effort and it seems some of those who are spinning the fastest are the ones guilty of the TOS violation themselves…
An activist has created @FreeChrisLoesch (not affiliated with Chris Loesch) to keep track on Twitter of conservatives stuck in #twittergulag. There is also a @TwitterGulag account to help publicize the plight of those targeted by progressive silencers.
Thank you, Twitter. Shane Wright is free and the coordinated spam block was confirmed:
We also heard from Angie Mancuso, who is now unsuspended and got similar confirmation that she was victim of a coordinated spam block attack. She notes that prior to her suspension, she had been interacting with #stoprush liberal Twitter activists.
We’ll keep on ‘em, too.
Ken Gardner has some advice:
PSA: trolls are trying to get people suspended by baiting them to respond, then reporting them for spam from their mentions column. Beware!—
