I will not be coming back to Twitter for this reason unless they reinstate my original and only account. I do not have an alt, and will not be creating one in the foreseeable future.
Creating a new account does nothing to change the hostile environment that Twitter has become. I could handle the hateful trolls, if they didnt indiscriminately punish those who were speaking out against them or allowing them to mass report ppl even when they follow ToS and block ppl being abusive towards them.
I have written to Twitter on numerous occasions to let them know that I was being targeted because of my advocacy for marginalized communities and because of my large platform. I have been ignored or told to "look at the context" of comments that didn't need any as they were self-explanatory.
After 11 days of no response from Twitter Support, they closed out 10 years, 55k+ posts, 17k+ followers without so much as a conversation or taking their own advice to "look at context".
Late last night, I got a response from Twitter that they would not be reinstating my account due to "abuse."
Twitter asks that it's users "look at context" when they are letting us know that the user reported "did not violate ToS" in the automated responses that they send out. I have had this happen NUMEROUS times on comments I have received that were racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, and anti-immigrant. I have received this response on comments that were CLEARLY death or rape threats +
