I get shadowbanned all the time.
Sounds very hi-tech and stealthy.

No idea what it is.

You get flagged by bots for disturbing activity and you stop appearing in feeds or mentions, getting notifications. Itís a light suspension, like the equivalent of putting you in time out or a straight jacket. It can happen from people reporting you for no reason, or using words, or anything that alerts the bots, getting into arguments, etc.

Twitterís so big itís impossible to moderate by humans, and theyíre useless too. They have a reputation in Silicon Valley for burning money.

Sounds wild.

Might be fun to test the waters and run amok with concept gimmick accounts.

Except with no followers the joke would be on me

so damn bored being real life "Sprague Dawley". i miss my trolling expedition days with Distressed gene-o, Goodcock etc

might be fun to erect a fake webring cock circus of gimmick accounts that follow each other and generally let their balls hang completely freely. again, the joke might be on me if it was just.... me

potential gimmick accounts:

Retired Terrorists Federated Union. they now denounce terrorism but still canvass for new members to get the perks of unionism. typing in arabic with just enough english biffed in to get the gist across. This one would probably get me on an NSA watchlist

Roger Gavaskar

Zuckerberg (shit can't imagine how many gimmick accounts there are for him)

one of Trumps shithead kids (except the autistic one)

the guy who invented twitter. whoever that is

If almost ten people pay attention to your tweet. That automatically means that yu're famous.

I don't make the rules here.

Ten?

TEN?

I can only dream of such a deluge of attention. If TEN people were to pay attention to my tweet I would surely spend the remainder of the day penning floridly-worded handwritten letters of reply to each and every one of the individuals, profusely thanking them for their attention. I might even affix some childish little butterfly stickers around the edges of the parchment and maybe even be moved enough to outline the shapes of my tears, fallen during writing, in biro pen.

The beauty of it is that you donít even need 10. 8 people pay attention, youíre a twitter rockstar. 5? Itís a stretch but itís more almost 10 than say 2 people. I would probably say 2 means youíre in some leauge of minor celebrity.

So how do people like Stephen Fry get on, with 62 billion followers?

No way in HELL I would ever log-off twitter if I had 802 million followers, I'd just loll about all day wallowing in the adulation. You love me. You really do love me.

Stephan Fry has more than 10 followers because he was good at being a comedian, actor, writer, presenter, and activist before he ever logged onto Twitter.

Iím driving up recruitment efforts and spamming on behalf of this forum being a source of entertainment, but itís depression-era morale, short attention spans  and instant self-gratification out there. Youíre missed on Twitter. Wish you would just learn how to use it. Sigh.
