Twitter Locked My Account For Sharing Post On Voter Fraud

Twitter Locked My Account For Sharing Post On Voter Fraud

Twitter claims the tweet contains “privately produced/distributed intimate media of someone without their express consent”

Twitter really really doesn’t want anyone to read this article, “Joe Biden’s votes violate Benford’s Law (Mathematics).”  In fact, if you tweet it, you will be locked out of your account, not-so-subtly accused of being some kind of pervert, required to remove it, and have a Twitter message slapped on your page for 14 days as shaming ‘punishment.’

Frankly, the Benford’s Law article is kind of flawed and problematic, but I did find it interesting enough to share and commented that I found it “interesting” in the tweet that Twitter coerced me to remove in order to regain access to my account.

Uploaded by FS_screenshotThis tweet, I was informed via email, violated rules regarding “privately produced/distributed intimate media.”

Uploaded by FS_email screenshot“Intimate media” . . . what?!  Read the article, here’s the archive link if you prefer to use that.  This is a publicly-posted article about a mathematical theory as applied to perceived voter fraud in several states; it is not “privately produced/distributed intimate media,” which frankly sounds to me like porn or something equally skeevy.

Apparently, Twitter thinks this article is “revenge porn” that includes “creepshots” or “non-consensual nudity”?

Further, Twitter claims the article was shared “without [the website’s] express consent.”  If it were a consent issue, I’m pretty sure the writer/site owner would be more than happy to provide consent for their post to be shared not just by me but by anyone and everyone.  Websites rather like to have their content read and shared “without their express consent.”

But of course this is not an “intimate media” problem, nor is it a “consent” problem; it’s an article that seems rather damning to the Biden campaign and to those responsible for what looks like widespread voter and election fraud in numerous states.

Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit warned that those who were retweeting his tweet on a post about the article (I first saw the article at GP via the LI Reading List) were having their accounts locked. I retweeted this warning tweet with no problem; I did not retweet the tweet Jim said was causing account locks.

It was only when I tweeted the original source that my account was locked.

FS screenshotI figured it was the Benford’s Law post until I got that bizarre email about “intimate media” and “express consent,” then I wondered if my Twitter account had been hacked by some mad porn ring.

But no, it was the Benford’s Law post.

FS screenshotFS screenshotI love the part where Twitter attempts to shame and ‘punish’ me by placing a notice on my account for 14 days.  Here’s my scarlet letter:

Like anyone would (ordinarily) see it, anyway, given Twitter’s propensity to shadowban and to limit distribution on conservative accounts.  In fact, it’s particularly strange that they would lock me out of an account that reaches so few people over an article that is being shared far and wide anyway.

Twitter censorship is very real, and while I didn’t think deleting this innocuous tweet was a hill worth fighting for as the New York Post’s most certainly was, I do think it’s important not only that everyone read the banned article and form your own opinion but that we also call Twitter out for their shady (insulting) practices.

      Imagine their membership is plummeting like Fox News.

      The Fox News Channel crashed in ratings on Saturday, coming in a distant third place to leader CNN and second place MSNBC.

      Gateway Pundit

    Honestly, I would normally get that gripping heart sink feeling over something like this, but I didn’t. If it weren’t for my work writing about politics, I would have ignored the whole thing and let them remove my account. As is, I not only want to fight for my country, but I need my job and, like it or not, we really do need to know what “they” are doing and how our side is responding. And that all happens, right now anyway, on Twitter.

      Colonel Travis in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | November 9, 2020 at 7:49 pm

      Agree with you in principle. Something has got to happen to these big tech companies, though. We cannot let them suppress information like they do.

        Agreed, Colonel. All we can do right now is point out their perfidy and share it everywhere to ensure the most people possible know about it. Twitter is not indestructible nor does it have the final word. The NYPost proved that. It just takes Twitter overreach (as here) and constant chipping away, let my sharing this experience be my “chip.” 😛

          Colonel Travis in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | November 9, 2020 at 8:49 pm

          Thank you (and everyone else at LI) for fighting the good fight.

          VetHusbandFather in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | November 10, 2020 at 6:56 am

          I think we need to be careful to not just back away from mainstream social media under the assumption that it will wither without a conservative presence. In doing so we simply create a new echo chamber for liberal indoctrination. If you look at the state of media like “Reddit” (which has essentially banned any alternative views) you know have a platform where liberal ideas go completely unchallenged. If you want other examples of where conservatives have withdrawn at their own peril, consider the US Education System and Hollywood.

      I can understand if using Twitter is part of someone’s job. What I can’t understand is someone who doesn’t need Twitter to make a living yet stays on and gets regularly locked, banned and abused. You don’t even have the pleasure of being able to fight back, and the Twitter Politboro will only laugh at you if you complain.

      For those who don’t actually need to use it Twitter seems like a colossal waste of time. Using it only money in Jack Dorsey’s pocket, and personally I don’t want to give the little Bolshevik one thin ruble, er, dime.

      My twitter account got locked for retweeting that article and I was cited the SAME reasons. Nudity, porn. I appealed because I wanted to call them out for not even being honest about why my account got locked. Over 24hrs later and it was supposed to be only for 12hrs. I’m still locked. Oh well! I’ve moved on to Parler!

    I’ve had a mewe account for a while. Just started using it. One of the major groups I’m on is migrating over. Well, two, but they’re connected… ndn most of the users are going with them.

      No thanks, never heard of it….

      MeWe and Parlor both are hidden from non-members. It’s tough to assess their quality, usefulness etc., without joining first.

        “You have to sign up for the service before you can see what’s in it!”. That sounds a bit Polosi-an to me.

    “Facebook Is a ‘Super Spreader’ of Election Misinformation” ?

    Friends and Members,

    With the USA’s Presidential Election quickly approaching, Facebook, Twitter, and the other social media giants have cranked up their election interference to new levels. ?
    https://www.newsweek.com/facebook-super-spreader-election-misinformation-1543306

    The social media giants allow politicians and election meddlers to target their users and these giants even use manipulative algorithms that amplify extreme and inflammatory content. Why? ? Because that creates higher engagement and more ad dollars.?

    A former Facebook executive recently stated that he fears Facebook may be “pushing us to the brink of a civil war.” ? ?
    https://www.businessinsider.com/former-facebook-exec-addictive-as-cigarettes-tim-kendall-2020-9

    At the same time, the social media giants are censoring good users, posts, pages, and groups simply for sharing political or ideological views that don’t align with the biases of these companies’ leaders. ? ?

    And this week, the CEOs of Facebook, Twitter, and Google were grilled by the USA Senate over their sites’ political bias/censorship: ? ? https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2020/10/28/facebook-twitter-google-accused-bias-against-trump-conservatives-senate-hearing/3753440001/

    It’s time for MeWe – Social Done Right! ?? ❤ ??

    No Ads, No Targeting, No Political Bias, No Electioneering, No Newsfeed Manipulation, No BS! ?

    #LetsMeWe ?? ?❤??

    Facebook Is a ‘Super Spreader’ of Election Misinformation
    False claims about voting and election security are flourishing on Facebook, despite the platform’s pledge to curb such content.

    This is why I stopped using Twitter and Facebook. They are gaming their platform to disadvantage anyone who dares to disagree with their agenda.

    Dump Twitter and Facebook already, will ya?

I just tweeted a link to this article, lets see if i get banned as well.

Looking forward to “free, fair and informed” future elections under a Biden administration.

All of this means that they have only a marginal toe hold on the beach head. Hopefully this is Operation Market Garden II and a Biden too far.

Locking you shows how broad the ban is. However you are probably on a special list anyway … as is anyone at this site. This makes Nixon’s Enemies List look anemic .. which is was.

    I feel pretty far down the ladder, but that’s so nice. I SO wanted to be on Obama’s gulag list, but I guess Kamala’s will have to do if their fraudulent “victory” stands (and I hope and pray that it won’t).

      alaskabob in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | November 9, 2020 at 7:49 pm

      Professor Jacobson can give you pointers on how to handle yourself when you finally meet up with one of those 100,000 monitor/enforcers for Wuhan flu. I only had one “friendly” KGB tail to directly deal with in Moscow 1971-72. Maybe you will be worthy of an FBI visit. The Left is beyond unhinged.

      On Gateway Pundit, a exorcist trained priest has an excellent prayer for Christians to pray that evil around this election will be bound and removed. Here’s hoping a rabbi has a similar one.

        Well, I live in Florida now, and thankfully, our governor Ron DeSantis is not a tyrannical lunatic (and this is Trump country, so that holds for our Rep and for LE and most everything else). My heart does go out to each of our friends who are not so lucky, though.

      Have you tried Mewe?

      My brother turned me on to it
      Less frustrating than Parler, might have to write an LI post if enough bloggers there agree it’s better….

      https://mewe.com/i/martysmith26

        I joined Parler. Dan Bongino is a co-owner ( there is an untrue rumor he sold it … fake news). He strikes me as a true patriot. Twitter has lost its usefulness for anything other than spreading propaganda.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to alaskabob. | November 9, 2020 at 7:23 pm

    You mean Sandy the Wall Eyed Bartender’s list?

Twitter locked and suspended my account when I suggested, on the night Aaron Danielson was murdered by an Antifa-BLM goon, it might be the work of an Antifa-BLM death squad. The video evidence was certainly suspicious.

I had only started using it to post a couple of weeks before. Prior to that I only used it to more easily follow and up vote comments.

They didn’t suspend if until several days after I posted the ‘offending comments’. I assume only after an informer brought them to the attention of their Thought Police.

At first it was a 12 hr suspension. Within an hour it became contingent on deleteing three ‘offensive’ posts.

I requested Twitter delete my entire account. They ignored me. F’em. Twitter can rot and go bankrupt before I’ll delete those posts.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to JHogan. | November 9, 2020 at 7:25 pm

    I can believe you.

    Have you seen all the Antifa-BLM attacking numerous Biden Democrats across the nation?

Fuzzy, this means you have finally arrived. You are now on the radar screen, a force to be dealt with!

Are John Cusack’s and Michael Rapoport’s tweets still up?

What about Robert Reich (as in 3rd Reich)?

Fuzzy, you naughty dissenter. 😉 Daring to challenge the “truths” peddled by Silicon Valley’s self-perceived thought gatekeepers.

I don’t use Twitter, but, it’s laughable how transparently biased their content standards are. All the restrictions flow in one direction, against conservative content. It never goes the other way.

It is, in a way, striking, and revealing, that Twitter now considers math perverted…

Oren Hirschberger | November 9, 2020 at 7:39 pm

Yesterday some guy on Instagram called me a kike. I responded by calling him wire trash. Instagram deleted my post and left up the kike post.

Something very wrong with these companies.

My daughter is in Grad School for applied Math with a concentration in Stats. When I saw this I texted her. She said she had heard of the law and would see it had any validity in this case.

So, Twitter, “We believe facts over science! Or truth over facts! Or………You know the thing!!”

Luckily you popped up on my Parler phone app. Message distributed.

“This tweet, I was informed via email, violated rules regarding ‘privately produced/distributed intimate media.’ “

The stated reason need not be the real reason; Twitter could be citing randomly chosen reasons just to provide cover for their true purposes…and sow a little confusion.

Get off all social media but Parlor and Gab

Consider the extensive, in-depth analysis at Legal Insurrection of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case, or the Duke University fake rape case at the Durham Wonderland blog: can there be any doubt that Twitter and Facebook and Google would shut down these blogs if they could?

OwenKellogg-Engineer | November 9, 2020 at 8:00 pm

I tried to share this info on FB, and mysteriously couldn’t post it….

Charlie Martin had his account restored with an apology for the “inadvertent error”.

    alaskabob in reply to Milhouse. | November 9, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    Azerbaijan also made a “mistake” but hard to restore the helicopter and the two crewman. The “mistake” against Martin is a reminder that other mistakes can (will?) happen.

    The Tech Oligarchs are running the country. The political parties are just chess pieces now. Sort of like the Spacing Guild in Dune.

    Yeah, I went to his Twitter page, saw the article and thought Twitter had un-banned it, perhaps in raw embarrassment. So I read the article, liked it, retweeted it—

    Wham. 12 hour ban for *RE*tweeting a tweet that they didn’t like. No warning, no nothing. You’re banned from Twitter for 12 hours, check afterward. Twelve hours later, I get the “You can re-enter our site if you click here and delete the tweet.” So I did. May the Streisand Curse be upon Twitter for this.

      stablesort in reply to georgfelis. | November 9, 2020 at 9:20 pm

      “You can re-enter our site if you click here and delete the tweet.”

      Chairman Mao’s cultural revolution is still alive; I must still be wandering in Quang Tin province with the Marines.

      Aarradin in reply to georgfelis. | November 10, 2020 at 10:50 pm

      Why would you, or anyone else, comply with such a demand?

      Have you no self respect at all?

      Delete your Twitter account and never go back.

I went to twittr as a refuge from one of the chans that was closed for awhile (it came back as something slightly different). I’m on twitr for the sole purpose of supporting PDJT and MAGA. That’s it. It’s a terrible place otherwise. Once the election is decided, I will not be going there very often, if at all. There do seem to be ways to slip through the censorship cracks. I don’t know, maybe I’m shadowbanned the whole time, who knows. Most of what I do is retweet. 45K since November 2019 I think it is. Anyways we need to keep up the fight on all fronts.

    daniel_ream in reply to CKYoung. | November 9, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    Yes. Don’t use Twitter.

    Contrary to popular Luddite opinion, Twitter and Facebook are not the entirety of the Internet, or even social media.

    Are you a stock holder? I ask because of the multiple plugs in this one thread.

    Also, I don’t buy or buy into anything without being able to take a look.

BuT iTs A pRiVaTe CoMpAnY!!!!!

We said this was coming. They officially DO NOT CARE any more about the RINO talk show tough guys.

They are openly censoring EVERYBODY and ANYBODY that goes against the Democrat narrative.

Sure glad that the RINOs decided to wait until after the election do even pretend to do anything about it, huh?

If China Joe’s coup holds up I expect Twitter, Facebook, et al will continue censoring anything posted they don’t like that is critical of him and his admin. Not just about the election. But about anything he says or does. About policy.

Twitter and Facebook and their ilk are our new self-appointed Ministry of Truth.

OTOH, Parler’s future looks bright.

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | November 9, 2020 at 8:43 pm

It’s the big fat-head, spoilt kidz club and we’re not in it.

At what point does this rate a lawsuit? I am guessing the lockdown (and reason) is public. If so, is twitter knowingly claiming a falsehood of a none public figure?

I do not play in social media, so any mistake is pure ignorance on my part.

This IS who Twitter is. This IS the content of their character.

I do not “tweet” and have never been on Twitter so cannot speak with any authority or experience. FWIW, I don’t think that “tweeting” did a lot for Trump–but I don’t mind, if he likes it. After all, he prevented Hillary.

As to Biden… at least he’s not Romney. McCain is dead. Joe is a shovel ready project and that vapid WillyGirl from California really does represent the content of the socialist liberal government.

Sure hope that Trump does some heavy hitting while he can.

Interesting that Wikipedia’s entry on Benford’s Law has been edited over 50 times since the election — probably nothing to do with vote counting, though.

RCP pulled giving Pennslyvania to hiden biden. They have quid pro joe at 259 electoral votes.
Mad Mitch is backing PDJT 100%, and politicians don’t go all in without some serious reason.

    No, they did not. This claim is going all around and it is not true. No matter whom you saw repeating it.

    RCP themselves have said they NEVER called PA so there was no way they could “recall” something they never did.

Anybody know where we can buy copies of Joe Biden’s ‘Little Red Book’ of aphorisms?

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to stablesort. | November 10, 2020 at 8:44 am

    Not off-hnd, but, a rumor I am trying to start says, every copy of the book comes with a coupon good for a free download of Phil Harris’s novelty tune, “The Thing”.

There’s a way I find this hysterical, Fuzzy.

The Twitter gods censured you. BFD.

Let’s see them censure it when Trump’s legal team brings it before the USSC.

Twitter will be talking about when the USSC shoves it up their behind sideways.

Lucifer Morningstar | November 10, 2020 at 12:29 am

It was only when I tweeted the original source that my account was locked.

You only got locked out for 12 hours? You were damn lucky. I pissed off the twitter PTB and got myself locked out of my account for seven days. ? Didn’t really care though. Figured I was on twitter all too much at the time and figured a seven day involuntary break would do me good. Haven’t been back much since I was reinstated as I discovered that I don’t need twitter at this point. Too much imbecility from liberal democrats to bother. ?

You aren’t alone, I’ve read numerous other accounts of people getting Twitter bans for the same proclaimed reason.

Electronic social media is the Praetorian guard of the Democrats, not surprised. And losing this election will make it worse.

That was a fun experiment. Locked my account as soon as it was posted. Lol

As soon as I posted I was locked.

got the same excuse for a 12hr ban for calling don lemon a whiny little c*nt

Go to Parler if you wish, but Gab is the better alternative in the long run.

Why? Because Gab has been deplatformed by so many services, it has had to develop it’s own so it’s armored against deplatforming.

Once enough people are on Parler, I won’t be surprised if Parler begins suffering the same thing — services deplatforming them. Then you’ve built up an audience to lose it again.

Yes, I’m on Gab as Close The Fed or maybe CloseTheFed.

I got permanently booted off twitter back in September for calling Hillary a naughty name. No threats or suggestions of violence, which was the rule they cited. I assume the old bitch was reading her feed for herself rather than some social media twit, and exploded with rage. And of course, when the Queen says jump, Dorsey’s twerps ask “how high”.

I consider it an honor.

    Aarradin in reply to CDR D. | November 10, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    I have a friend in FB jail right now for pointing out the fact that Kamala is a whore.

    Years of Lefty comments calling Melania, falsely, the same or worse never resulted in any similar punishment.

I think this happened to all of us who posted a link to that article on Benfold’s Law. After my ban expired, I refused to remove the “offending article” and appealed. Within 2 hours I got a message saying, “oops, we were wrong and you are restored”.

Delete your Twitter account and never go back.

Don’t link to anyone else’s Twitter feeds or comments.

Just go to Parler, where they do not censor your content.
