Is Twitter Targeting Conservatives For The
Labor Day Twitter Targeting Update!
September 1, 2014
About a month ago, or exactly on August 16, I Re-Tweeted a Dog Rescue Story about my Rescue Dog (Four Legged Son), Mr. Goof (In Photo Below), and how he was Rescued from a Rescue Center in Taos, New Mexico on a Vacation Trip. I told about my Rescue Dog and I immediately received numerous Re-Tweets; plus numerous Dog Rescue Twitter Accounts kept popping-up and I Followed most of them.
Twitter thought I was being too aggressive in Following all of these Dog Rescue Accounts and they revoked my Follow and Tweeting privileges. During this time, I missed the First College Football Opening Games of the Season, Labor Day, My Baylor Alma Mater New Stadium Inaugural Game, my Wife’s Birthday, and World War III in the making. Enough is enough!
Oh Yeah! In the last three weeks, since my Twitter Account has been Revoked, Twitter has Deleted 17,878 of my Followers that I worked night and day for five years to get to Follow me. Three weeks ago, I had 198,820 Followers and if you subtract the 17,878 Deleted Followers that were Deleted by Twitter, then you can currently see that I have 180,942 Followers.
By writing this story, I am sure that I take the chance of being Completely Suspended by Twitter, but with the IRS Scandal, AP Scandal, and NRA Scandal; there certainly seems to be a connection with this Twitter situation. And this Unbelievable Story needs to be told.
The IRS and the Obama Administration has been targeting Constitutional Conservatives, TeaParty Patriots, U.S. Military, American Patriots, Judeo-Christians and Jesus Christ Followers. This targeting is one of the main reasons that Obama won the 2012 Election, because Tea Party Conservatives and other American Patriots were afraid to meet; afraid to donate; and afraid to do anything against the Obama Administration. My Twitter Profile is below and as you can see that all of it is in the Obama Target. Also Dogs!
As a Tweeter on Twitter who is also a Constitutional Conservative, US Navy American Patriot, and Judeo-Christian, I am already being Targeted by the Obama Administration and now I may be targeted by the Liberal Social Media Twitter.
If you’re like me, you may have noticed that Twitter may be Unfollowing some of your Twitter Followers in an arbitrarily, randomly, haphazardly, and seemingly a political way, to some of the people that you fully intended to Follow. Similarly, you may have noticed that some of your friends and contacts Unfollowed you, and it may have caused a sense of confusion or self-insecurity. To any very active Twitter user, when you lose even one Follower, it’s pretty demoralizing.
Everyone uses Social Media and it seems that most everyone started using Twitter a few years ago when it first started. I have only been using Twitter for about Five years, but I have come to use it every day. I have also worked very hard to get more Followers and so it is doubly hard to understand why I would lose one or two Followers for any reason, but some strange things have started to take place.
Each time that I was just about ready to reach a new Following Plateau, such as 30,000, 40,000, or 50,000 Followers, I would start losing Followers. Then, it was 100,000 and then 150,000 Followers. And then recently, I had 198,820 Followers and was about to reach 200K and then Twitter pulled this latest stunt. I could use a lot of Curse Words here, but I refuse to use one.
When I was just about to hit 30,000 Followers, it seemed that I started losing Followers and so I worked extra hard in trying to get the 30,000 Followers and I finally got it. That was a few years ago. Then the same thing started happened again when I was trying to reach 40,000 Followers.
On June 6, 2012, I was closing-in on 50,000 Followers and it started happening again. On that Monday, I was up to 49,149 Followers and then I lost 200 Followers and then on Tuesday night, I lost 422 Followers. The next night, I lost 1,287 Followers. This made absolutely no sense to me.
So I went from 49,149 Followers to 47,862 Followers or 1,287 Deleted Followers in three days. After about Five days, I had lost 8,890 Followers and was down to 40,259 Followers. I worked really hard and built my Followers back up to 49,985 Followers and was really excited about reaching the 50,000 Followers Plateau again and it started to happen again.
On June 17, 2012, I sent this TWEET: MUST READ: The Liberal Twitter is so predictable. As I was at 49,968 and approaching 50,000 Followers, they knocked me back down to 49,245.
Five Minutes later, they knocked me back down to 49,001 Followers. Wait! Five more minutes and I’m down to 48,746 or 1,222 Deleted Followers in 10 Minutes!
On June 18, 2012 I kept losing more and more Followers and by the end of the day, I had lost 10,325 Followers. On June 19, I lost another 2,502 Followers and then I was down to 37,158 Followers after having 49,968 Followers on June 17. This is very Demoralizing!
I was not sure if Twitter was causing all of this, on purpose or by accident, so I asked one of my contacts at Twitter who responded: “There was a bug, and the Twitter Team was working to fix it.” They also sent me a link to their support FAQ, which indicates the known issue.
This latest problem of Revoking my Tweet and Follow Privileges is all Twitter and their Policies against Conservatives.
Your dear Aunt Margaret or Uncle Bob wasn’t invited to your wedding due to mail parcels were Deleted, or your executive wasn’t invited to your big presentation meeting, because your address book Deleted him by accident, or you couldn’t call your best friend to let them know about your funding announcement, because his contact info was Deleted.
The act of Following someone on Twitter is an important Social Media indicator for at least three reasons: 1. A Follower suggests the individuals content is worthy of listening to and you want to hear their thoughts, even the most mundane ones; 2. It’s an important indicator that you’re willing to engage in deeper conversations by receiving direct message; and 3. At a broader social perspective, this is a gesture that this person is in your broader social clan, your kin, or your affinity. And now, with 180K Followers; I’m not allowed to Follow anyone. My 180K Followers does include Six Governors, Nine U.S. Senators, Six Heisman Trophy Winners, and Twelve NFL Hall of Famers.
In my line of work, I deal with a lot of Direct Messages in Communications with High School, College, and Professional Football Players, High School and College Football Coaches and their Parents who are constantly trying to give me information about these Football Players. In fact, some Coaches ask me to send them a Direct Phone Message or Tweet, instead of an Email. Unlike the overloaded Email, Direct Phone Messages are an important Business Option and it only works for those who are Following you. Sometimes, it takes me half a day to get through all of my Emails and on top of that, my Email was Hacked about a year ago and the Hacker Deleted 3,200 of my Contacts. I am now back-up to 1,886 Email Contacts.
Yet, I wonder how many business, personal, and casual relationships are strained by the Twitter Bug haphazardly Unfollowing. And now, this Insane Liberal Revoking of my Privileges. I wonder how many important Direct Messages that I may have already missed from my trusted Twitter network.
So what can I do? Probably Absolutely Nothing. I can’t even get Twitter Support to help me to Return my Messages. They are just like the White House!
