This is what I see when I log in to Twitter. I have not received any other explanation, nor identification of the rule supposedly violated.
Did you post about Elon, his jet, or the recent suspensions?
@tony Minnesota is being well represented in The Purge.
@tony it’s seems that you’re not alone. Welcome!
@tony out of curiosity, has your account ever been suspended before? (if they went right to the permaban without any prior temporary suspensions, that makes this even more remarkable)
@tony to be clear this suspension is clearly a decision Elon made that the moderation team will have to figure out how to retroactively justify... so i'm trying to figure out how difficult that retroactive justification is going to be for them
@tony I’m following all the suspended from there over here.
@tony no clue at all? crazy
@tony seems like the review was NOT careful
@tony Wow! Glad to be following you on here. Bird has become a dumpster fire.
@tony When I saw your name on the list of banned journalists I plotzed
@tony Oh good I found you. And of course you run your own Mastodon server 😂
the fact that they can't link to their own support page without messing that up is so incredibly symbolic of the last month and a half.
@tony what were you tweeting about that might have led to the ban?
@tony I guess that means you're not:
A -- A white supremacist
B -- A Nazi
C -- A Russian
D -- An Elmo sycophant
E -- Any combination of the above choices
@tony Looks like a bunch of respected journalists got their accounts suspended today. You’re in good company.
This is unbelievable. You are noted in the NY Times article about this: https://www.nytimes.com/2022/12/15/technology/twitter-suspends-journalist-accounts-elon-musk.html
@tony Thanks for covering Elon! It seems he doesn't like sunlight!
@tony Tony, are you accepting Minnesota Twitter refugees who want to move to your instance?
@Dbrauer This one's just for me, but mspsocial.net?
@tony I hesitate to recommend because they block discovery of fair amount of the fediverse. I respect why but I’m thinking it’s too high a bar for new folk. They said, haven’t found the perfect instance that is accepted by all instances I want to accept me.
@tony Do you think it might have something to do with the Grimes stalking incident?
@tony I’ll follow you here (and anyone else who follows me). Want to build followers back up and we need to support each other during the transition!
@tony oh he is wilding 🤦🏾♀️
@tony , I did read your stuff in Twitter, but I would rather do it here.
@tony Fixed it:
“You’re no longer a musk asset (unless you buy a Tesla)”
I know it’s hard for journalists who built a following for years, and whose livelihoods depend, in part, on clicks to their content. But there’s plenty of other outlets to post content and gain a following. Like here. Welcome.
Elon the Great and Powerful shall not be mocked! He has very delicate feelings.
@tony it’s strange, I’ve just found that my Twitter feed just started to fill with RWNJs and loony conspiracy theorists. Not sure if it was by design, or if that’s all there is left over there. So here I am!
