I missed this hilarious off-line update from Hannah (posted by Carla on the same thread):
"Haha I’m really ok honest. I was always pushing my luck so it was inevitable once my account got big enough. I should spend less time online anyway, it’s bad for my brain.
Appreciate everyone’s thoughts though. It was fun while it lasted … Don’t worry I will still ..
be horrible to men who deserve it, just in real life. Please make sure to frequently remind everyone that I was very beautiful and always correct ❤️”
At the time of Tier 1-2-3-4 lockdown there was a thread on Twitter with people making humorous suggestions for Tier 5.
"Tier 5: Put a polythene bag over your head" I said, that got me a ban for advocating suicide.
On another occasion, there was a couple in the news for murdering their young son, after which a Tory MP went on with a Tweet calling for the return of capital punishment.
"Would you have seen Sally Clark hang?" I said, and that got me another ban, and for the same reason.
I think Twitter bans (at least in the pre-Elton days) can depend on the source of the complaint. My old account got locked for this - presumably because Lozza took personal exception to being likened to a front bottom:
Hard to see how the actual words constitute the 'offence', but whatever.
What's interesting is that (out of morbid curiosity) I signed up for a new account while I was on holiday last month, just to watch Twitter die. I expected it to be nuked once I started connecting from my home IP but so far it's still up. Maybe a consequence of the whole thing falling to bits under Musk. Tbf it's not much fun these days.
Yes, volume of complaints makes a big difference. Mass reporting is a common tactic to get accounts shut down. She should appeal though. Deleting the comment should have been offered as an option, joke or not. I don't follow her but it doesn't sound like it was a cumulative thing where that post was the last straw.
People post far, far worse and it either goes unnoticed or they let it pass because there are only a few complaints.
