  1. Huh! First I’ve heard of Twitter jail – more social media nazis for harmless things. I just finished a month jail stunt from Fakebook. It seems we aren’t allowed to state our factual opinions there, but posts about Nazism are just fine. 😦

    1. I never get how some people are allowed to troll and stalk people (including children) online, make racist slurs and death threats, yet a joke got me banned from Twitter until I appealed.
      Best wishes, Pete.

    2. You to huh. About a month back I posted what most UK residents believe is the only way to stop the thousands of illegal immigrants from crossing the channel – sink the rubber boats, and was chastised by Zuckerberg’s Woke idiots! So much for Free Speech!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Both Facebook and Twitter do not have the people with the historical knowledge to understand. That is probably why someone else looked at it and let you back in. They have a criteria to follow but again they don’t get it.

    1. I mainly use it to share blog posts of mine and others in the community. Then when I decide to leave a jokey comment, I get locked out! I won’t be doing that again in a hurry.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  3. “I’m free! I’m free!” I know this is a whole can of worms because we certainly want freedom of speech. Your situation is typical of many who get mysteriously locked out, frequently over something completely harmless. At the same time, how many times have I heard someone utter the words, “Why didn’t someone stop him/her before?”

    It is a bit ironic that Donald Trump made a living out of making more hateful comments than just about anyone I know, and it took forever for him to be locked out finally. I recently read that Facebook or Twitter was not a lifetime ban for him. He may return to bring the world more cheer (total sarcasm).

    1. Yes, it was rather galling to be locked out for a comment including an old joke, when racists, fat-shamers, and stalkers are allowed to continue to spread hate. But at least it only took Twitter 10 minutes to let me back in. 🙂
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I once had a similar problem with WordPress. They asked for a phone number to send an authorisation code to, and when I gave them my mobile number they said it ‘was already in use by someone else’. That someone else turned out to be me all along, and it was lucky I had a paid plan so I could contact someone straight way.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Your not the only one who has upset the ‘Woke’ idiots Pete. Facebook’s minions threatened me the other day for reposting something they didn’t like, instead of going after the originator of the post! This is not the first time I’ve upset the childish morons, and I dare say it won’t be the last!

    1. I wish they would concentrate on the real offenders, those who make racist slurs, stalk women online, or write sexual insults. Instead of nit-picking around genuine people, they could do some real good by removing the dangerous ones.
      Thanks, Jack.
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. It was a reply to a tweet asking about secrets. It was from a writer who I don’t know well at all. She wanted us to tell her real secrets. I replied with the old spy joke.

      “I could tell you, but then I would have to kill you, and I don’t want to do that”.

      I didn’t even remember sending it, but Twitter picked it up as a ‘Harassment and Threat”. Once they told me, I could see why, but I thought it was a shame they didn’t lock the accounts of all the facists and weirdos who make genuine threats.

      They reviewed the tweet ‘in context’, then apologised.
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I have never been on Facebook, and only use Twitter to connect with other bloggers. If they had closed me down, I really wouldn’t have cared, Jon. I only appealed their decision because what I had written was so obviously a joke.
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I only use it to publicise my blog posts and share those of others I follow. The first time I try to make a jokey comment, I get locked! 🙂
      If they hadn’t unlocked me, it wouldn’t have worried me in the least, Cathy.
      Best wishes, Pete.
