Sarah Westall's Latest Twitter Appeal and Twitter's Response
Many high profile hand selected people are getting their Twitter accounts back. The majority of the Musk returners posted similar posts as myself and were suspended during the same timeframe as myself. But, for some magical reason, certain people are getting their accounts back and others, like myself, are not.
Since my Twitter account is still suspended and so are so many others, I figured I would show people what it looks like when you appeal your suspension. Below is my latest appeal to the social media company:
Dear Twitter Team,
I have sent countless appeals trying to reinstate my account without reply. I am still suspended, but I have no understanding of what prompted my account to be suspended in the first place. From what I can tell, none of my posts violated your published rules. Not now and not back in early 2020.
Further, I am confused as to why so many people have been reinstated while mine stays suspended; people who were suspended at the same timeframe as my account for what appears to be the same nebulous reasons.
This leaves me to wonder, am I specifically being targeted? And if so, why? And by who? What makes me different?
Is it possible for a Twitter employee to ever respond to these questions?
I would so much appreciate a response on this matter. Not just an automated response from a bot.
Here was Twitter's response:
Thanks for your report. It looks like this is connected with your original case # 0311582121, so we’ve added it to that first report.
We’ll continue our review with this information.
If you have more details you think we should know, please respond to this email to send them our way. We appreciate your help!
It's the usual bot response. The same one I receive every time I send in a new appeal. But one time I did get something different. It was on March 14th, the last time I sent in an appeal:
We received your request to have your account reinstated. We are reviewing a high volume of requests and appreciate your patience as it may take longer than normal for us to get back to you with an outcome.
If this request is for an account reinstatement under our new criteria, please allow 5-7 days for us to review and respond.
I was mildly excited to see that one because it was different from all the rest that I had seen. In this automated bot email I was told that they would get back to me within 5-7 days!! Yippeee!!! But of course, they did not.
Since the treatment I am experiencing is obviously unfair, or at minimum, less fair than others - maybe boarding on abusive, I would recommend to Elon Musk that he implements a general amnesty based on the poll response he received below:
After all, the majority of people agree with a general amnesty. Why would you suspend anyone who didn't break the law anyway? We do live in America, the Land of the Free... and if people do not like me or anyone else, they can just unfollow me or anyone else.
