The #twittergulag saga continues: @gopfirecracker suspended, others still trapped; Update: @gopfirecracker’s account restored

The conservative Twitter community remains ever-vigilant against the online Left’s Coordinated Spam-Block Bloc. We’ve tracked it for a month now since the unjust suspension of @Freemarket_US in April, then through the confirmed coordinated attack on @ChrisLoesch less than week after that, and then the suspension and release of @ShaneWright22 (also confirmed as a Coordinated Spam-Block bloc attack) and many others earlier this month.

Tonight, conservative Twitter activists sent word that an editor from Misfit Politics, @gopfirecracker, had her account suspended.

Another Twitter user suspended tonight: @orwellforce

We’ve let some Twitter powers-that-be know and hope that they’ll be sprung soon.

But we agree with the exasperation expressed here:

Some steps to remember if you get Twitter Gulag’ed.

1. File a ticket. Twitter can’t help unless you do this.

2. Take screenshots if possible. Make a list of the Twitter users you were tweeting with before your suspension and note the subjects you were discussing.

3. Give Twitter a little time — at least 24-48 hours.

4. Notify @FreeChrisLoesch and @TWlTTERGULAG, two accounts that keep running tallies of users trapped in #twittergulag.

5. Make noise! Keep making noise!

Those who want to support their friends and colleagues: Remember to tweet @gov and @support, along with spreading word through #free hashtags.

Update: @gopfirecracker is back!

She says, “Twitter confirmed that I was targeted.”

Others are still trapped:
