On Twitter Ban Waves & Backup Plans
Twitter’s technology is a tool of our enemies. Therefore, by definition, your account is likely going to be banned either before the 2022 election or before the 2024 election. They give less and less reasons for why they ban people now and the accounts they target range from obvious to making absolutely no sense at all. Over the last two weeks the online right has been experiencing a ban wave; here are some of yesterday’s casualties.
Banning accounts like Ink Blot, who simply posts cute videos of animals, or accounts like Surf Dog, who posts images of dogs with interesting captions, is Twitter sending a loud message: “It doesn’t matter if you break our terms and conditions. It doesn’t matter if you hide your power level. We know if you are a part of the dissident right or even adjacent to it and we will slowly take you out if we want to.”
Unfortunately, we are at the behest of these resentful Twitter nerds. Sitting at home in their pajamas, clicking away, thinking they’re doing the right thing by ending fascism or whatever sloshes around in their owned minds. There’s really not much we can do it about it, and Twitter’s technology has become vastly more sophisitcated at detecting ban evasion. Within the realm of Twitter, we are under their thumb unless Elon Musk purchases them, inshallah.
In the meantime, I strongly recommend having backup channels to stay in touch with your friends and followers. Every group chat I’ve ever had on Twitter has a backup chat on Telegram in case one of us gets banned. The key way to not let them win is for your friends and followers to easily find you, so our ideas can still remain alive and more importantly, that we do not lost contact with our friends.
I made the mistake of creating my public Telegram channel after I was banned and not before, but I am thankful that many of you followed me there quickly after friends of mine promoted it on Twitter. My banning is also the inspiration for my Substack.
The point is, that our ideas have a will of their own. Our ideas spread very quickly. Our ideas penetrate the mainstream easily because we have truth and biology on our side. I believe that ideas come to you and consume you; skinnyarmed Twitter content reviewers have absolutely nothing to do with this process. There is a personal, practical effort required on our end though, which is having backup channels. I strongly recommend creating a Telegram channel and if you enjoy writing, then create a Substack, announce them both on Twitter and DM your friends to let them know about it.
I am now back on Twitter, but unfortunately I cannot make my @ public. I’ve been told that I have many people are ‘hate following’ my Telegram channel and they will surely report me for ban evasion if I make this public. In addition, I know that I’m on a list of sorts, thanks to Travis Brown, a known doxxer, who has admitted to working with the German government and likely many others. As you can see here, he included me on his ‘right wing bot list'.
I won’t lie, seeing myself listed around such legends was flattering.
Regardles, I am back on Twitter and I will be staying low key for a while as to not be detected for ban evasion. For now, I will only be disclosing this to close friends and paid subscribers to avoid being reported for ban evasion.
