So @Twitterdev Automated Governance with post moderation : Twitter has automated systems that find and disable abusive API keys in bulk. Unfortunately, it looks like your application got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake. We have reactivated the API key and we apologize for the inconvenience.
Voices from the open web : Suspended from the birdsite since Nov 2020, I'm still trying to get unsuspended, only if for the archive of a decade of tweets, but I don't have much hope there..
deplatforming can be automated, without possibilities of appeal, you don't even need to have breached anything, you just need to be profiled the wrong way and some algorithm will wipe your existence out of it, without even the slightest chance of appeal.
Twitter is doing automated moderation based on shadowy algorithms, total lack of accountability, transparency or democratic governance.
Its not new, but platforms are rogue and cannot be trusted, no matter where you stand in the political spectrum.
It's crazy how a simple link can get you locked or suspended from Twitter, a link denouncing the host of CP material also behind 8kun, that gets you suspended at the birdsite, meanwhile all kinds of white supremacist are free roaming the platform in full impunity.
I'm so glad there is the fediverse.
Looking at US Twitter feels like watching a slow motion car crash with every new stages of the crash being documented live like a terrible desperate rogue empire last attempts at mimicking survival & projection of fitness to even just participate in a complex world.
Quite disturbing to have a simultaneous view on the full political spectrum narratives..
On one side you have leftist/progressives/blm/antifa becoming mainstream, on the other end of the spectrum you have the so called Conservatives/right/Altright/far-right/white-supremacist turned mainstream with the rise of Trump but quickly becoming pariah mainly due to their own inaction, corruption, kleptocracy, oligarchy, authoritarian drift.
in the middle you have people that got concerned about politics because of the rise of Trump, at any cost they want to make sure a Democrat is elected in November and due to the current situation (BLM, Covid19,Trump) are getting closer to the progressive swarm.
on the fringe of this ecosystem, you have a ring of conspiracy theories, blunt propaganda, twisted activists posing as journalists or academics, trying to mainstream these fringe theories using leverages such as Trump and now no more than 60+ US politicians, openly endorsing QAnon delusions.
Between Parler, Gab, Twitter, Facebook and my own chronological monitoring of News using RSS the only corner of the Internet where I can rest is still the #fediverse.
