Suspended from Twitter

So I was permanently suspended from Twitter yesterday. I responded to a tweet about vaccinating children. I said the "vaccine" is ineffective and dangerous. I have been warned before that Twitter considers the vaccine safe and that I would be suspended if I continued to post that it wasn't. Couldn't help myself. As much as I get that Twitter can make it's own rules it is still frustrating that legitimate opinions and discourse are suppressed.

    Congratulations. You are in excellent company with most of the courageous defenders of free speech and individual liberty. 👍
    Now (if possible) close your twitter account to reduce twitter's footprint and valuation.
    Punish the censors of truth.

      I tried to deactivate my account and I can't. Since I am suspended I am "unable to perform that action".

        That makes sense. Twitter needs all the accounts they can get
        and if the accounts can't complain Twitter is just as happy.

        You can sign up with the competition and tell your story there. Elon will be listening, I suspect.

          I have a TruthSocial account. For some reason it seems boring.

            I agree on TruthSocial. I am a member there, but I can't stay there for more than just a few minutes at a time :-) Does your Twitter suspension have a time limit? If so you will be able to close your account after that.

            I am so disappointed that Elon is backing out of the purchase, even though I know better than to look upon ANY person as a "savior," or whatever the best term is...I just did want him to FORCE them to allow points of view that are more in alignment with our thoughts here in the Gulch.

    Next thing you'll probably say something like, "Men have a penis and women have a vagina"...and we can't have that, either...

    You did a good thing.
    But no good deed goes unpunished on a platform controlled by libtarded control freak pinheads.
    Hey, pinhead preachers! Leave them kids alone!

      As Rush Limbaugh said, “Kids have brains full of mush.” Twitter and the Libs want them to stay that way.

        Me dino has heard Rush say that many, many times since I started to listen to him during the Nineties.
        If I'm not mistaken, one time he even said that (shades of Watter's World campus interviews) about college students.
        Recall a junior college student publication once having a special segment in which students wrote what life was all about.
        About that, me dino recalls a professor telling a class I was in, "What the heck do you people think you know about life? You're just getting started."

      There were times that I enjoyed Twitter but as I reflect the hate and propaganda was getting to be a bit much. It was enjoyable briefly when Musk was set to buy them. When the deal went south they lowered the boom.

    Gettr - boring, not much activity.
    GAB - too much Jesus, now accused of being anti-semitic, also boring, little activity.
    Parler - some interest, but again not enough participation.
    TRUTH Social - the current site most pro-Trump, worth looking at, but becoming an echo chamber.
    Twitter - unfortunately, still where the most people are active, so more activity is good, BUT heavily censored and full of bots.
    I wish more people would quit Twitter and liven up the other sites.
    Probably best just to avoid social media all together? But Galt's Gulch is good!

      "Probably best just to avoid social media all together? But Galt's Gulch is good!" Now, that's where I'm at! I only have so many minutes in a day to be fooling around with computer stuff and I'd rather spend it in the Gulch than anyplace else.

    For my part, it's hard to be "banned" from a media one doesn't participate in.
    I do not visit university campuses to explain their confusion because the result would be.......
    I do not visit union halls to explain the unalienable right of ownership to pursue their individual property rights because the result would be......
    What I do though is frequent this sight as objective viewpoints are discussed for validity.
    I go where the soothing sound of rational thought keeps my blood pressure at healthy levels.

      Same here, FelixOReilly. I never signed up for the bird and left feces book for the same reason--junk. I can o ly find reasoned discussions here, on all kinds of topics, generally with respect for othrrs' opinions .

    Here's one more thought on the topic of social media and their biases... I was on Nextdoor.com typing a response to someone about the difference between a virus and the sickness it causes and I was NOT allowed to use the actual name of the virus (SARS-CoV2) in my post. They insisted that I use COVID which is the sickness not the actual virus. Idiots are in charge of not only our health but our language.

    As far as the effectiveness of the jab goes, my dear sweet kool-aid drinking, govt school working spouse got them all and still got covid. I on the other hand did not. She gave me covid and were recovering at the same rate. The severity was also very similar. That being said, my question is, what good is that vial of poison?

    Regarding the vaccine, I can provide proof if you need it. I didn't take the vax and neither did anyone in my family but I had COVID and blood tests show the antibodies. Two of my friends took the vaxes and they have been sick, sick, and sick.COVID attacks your immune system and plays havoc. All three of us have lost serious amounts of weight. My 6' friend (female) is now 6' tall and weighing in at 127 pounds. Beanpole. The other one lost 57 pounds and I lost 42 (down to 126). COVID is a Bioweapon and so are the damn vaccines!

      I agree. I was told I had COVID pneumonia early on. I wanted to maintain my natural immunity and I was skeptical from the start about the vaccine. Unsettling that a social media site would only allow government propaganda.

    Ah, I have been sent to fakebook jail so many times I am now permently blacklisted and "my posts will appear lower in peoples feeds" and I was twattering more a few years ago, then got new computer and forgot password, so I gave up on it. Telegram has much better responses and no censorship except what is imposed by a groups self appointed police. If everyone left twatter, they would just shrivel up, since 50% of it is bots anyways.

    The irony of it all. Even the CDC is starting to get around to the truth, Would Twitter ban the CDC when they try to actually publish it? I think the time is coming for some massive lawsuits, maybe even some massive Class Action Lawsuits for those not up to the work.. PS - I saw two people, in separate circumstances today, wearing masks. One was someone we used to know, the other a complete stranger.

      Agreed. The longer it takes for this information to get out the more lives that will be affected

        I wear a mask in the apartment building where I live; I mean, in the corridors/passageways. I take it off when I get into my own apartment. When I leave, I wear it between my apartment and the outside door; when I get out of the house, I take it off. (Though I was recently told, that it was no longer "required", just "recommended." I rent an apartment in a subsidized building.)
