Or, you could WALK AWAY FROM TWITTER. You want the power, but do you really want the surveillance? Is Twitter the past, or the future? Well, start living that future now. You weren't born with a cellphone in your hand, but you may die that way. Abusers love when you come crawling back, over and over.

You got here first so I'm just seconding you.

Just do it. Twitter needs to be "Up To Date" ; ) lol, on the Facts.

I would be happy to repost your articles, but I quit all social media after reading "The Social Dilemma" and the Trump/Parler debacle.

Two weeks ago, I replied to the leader of a well-known UK nudge unit referred to as "the mutton crew" with a link to a website that was a parody of him. Two days later, I receive an email from Twitter, saying my account was permanently suspended due to ban evasion. My account was 13 months old with a dismal follower count of 181. My content never had a warning label applied. These nudge units either have access to bot farms or can marshal enough human accounts in volume and in a short period of time to automatically trip the permanent suspension algorithm. I have appealed twice, no response. Twitter is a cesspool. I'm glad my account is read-only now.

I got the permanent boot from twitter for politely suggesting to Fauci, while he had covid, that he investigate Ivermectin. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. And though my following was higher than yours (maybe 6000), the twitter algo had me so hidden that my reach was almost zero. Most of my tweets showed less than 20 impressions after 24 hours, and almost always zero interactions. Why ban an active user when no one sees them anyways? No wonder Musk wants to get out of that toxic cesspool fraud.

Consider switching to a different service. Free speech competitors are popping up against Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, Google, PayPal, etc. Or just focus on your email list. I don't use any social media accounts but I do use email and I have forwarded many of your articles by email to people who I thought might be interested and open minded enough to listen.

This is something that you would not suggest yourself, so I am suggesting it. I think it would be better to insert Dr into the hashtag. This would avoid that uninformed parts of the Twitter public assume this is a call for the return of Jack Dorsey. More importantly, the hashtag #GetDrJackBack would convey the info that we are talking about a DOCTOR = expert (as opposed to political activist/ideologue) that has been silenced here.

So, #GetDrJackBack would sound much much better to me!!!
