Twitter off the deep end

As if to prove my Wednesday post, Twitter has suspended Stacy McCain’s account. He wasn’t too clear on the exact cause, and doesn’t really seem to know. But at the moment, it ends with “EXPECT UPDATES…

You probably know that much already. After my previous post being about Twitter, I’d like to say I expected stuff like this, but of course I did not think it could be so soon, or so overt. This was pretty quick.

It’s as if the grown-ups left for the weekend, and the SJW interns are in control. It was only supposed to be just in case the circuit breakers popped — it is a weekend, after all — but then those interns saw an injustice that needed to be fixed, and it couldn’t wait ’til Monday.

Twitter may or may not see this as a mistake. I assume they will adapt to the complaints.

I just signed up for Quitter.se. (My own account is here). It’s an alternative that would take time to build. I’ll be updating the major posts on both platforms.
