This isn't a rant. Not really.
A few moments ago, a RolePlay account that I follow got suspended. It's a great account. It's OOC (Out of Character) is a great Role Player. She followed all the rules and everything. She did not spam. She followed only a few people so there's no way that agressive following was the reason for suspension. There was controlled sex and violence on her timeline. And she had the adult warning #Roleplay 18+ on her bio, in compliance with the rules.
Which begs the question, why did it get suspended?
Twitter says that the support Roleplay, but how come those good RPers who do follow the rules still got suspended? So not cool, little blue bird.
There are lots of bullies and rule-breakers on Twitter. Also, there are many sex-maniacs and perverts and pedophiles who are using the social network to pleasure themselves. However, they don't get suspended at all. So not fair.
Here is her OOC statement.
"I work hard on my RPs. I develop a story & do my best to be entertaining. I have multi dimensional characters that I try to make relatable yet when I follow the rules, -I- get suspended & those accounts that exist to only have sex or bully still remain? It's not fair. Twitter rules say they support role players, yet, they pull this crap. I hate that they would pull this. I -refuse- to create a new main for Nala & I will fight as long as it takes to get @TwistedNala reinstated! #FreeNala! Twitter, the RP community is the majority of the millions of accounts that you brag about. Do us a favor & stop screwing us over! We -ARE- Twitter!"
Same with my RL account. I got my Twitter account suspended last month. A Real Life account where I follow mostly bloggers and friends, and some news and entertainment accounts. I remember that day, I was simply checking the trending topics and tweeting a few witty tweets, then boom. I was caged. I didn't know what happened. I mean, it was a RL account. People who follow me knows that I don't curse. I don't say the F word. I don't have sex or any violence on my TL. And I follow only a few people.
People who don't follow the rules get suspended. People who do follow the rules get suspended. Wow, Twitter. Make up your mind!!
