Dear John,

I see that you have had the following reply from Twitter...

Quote<<<Twitter: "Your account @*cryptomeorg* <https://twitter.com/Cryptomeorg> has been suspended due to multiple or repeat violations of the Twitter Rules. Replies not monitored."

>>>End of Quote.

On looking at Twitter Terms and Conditions further. I see that under Section 4. Using the Services.

The following condition applies...


       Ending These Terms

You may end your legal agreement with Twitter at any time by deactivating your accounts and discontinuing your use of the Services. See http://support.twitter.com/articles/15358-how-to-deactivate-your-account for instructions on how to deactivate your account and the Privacy Policy for more information on what happens to your information.

We may suspend or terminate your account or cease providing you with all or part of the Services at any time for any or no reason, including, but not limited to, if we reasonably believe: (i) you have violated these Terms or the Twitter Rules <https://twitter.com/rules>, (ii) you create risk or possible legal exposure for us; (iii) your account should be removed due to prolonged inactivity; or (iv) our provision of the Services to you is no longer commercially viable. We will make reasonable efforts to notify you by the email address associated with your account or the next time you attempt to access your account, depending on the circumstances. In all such cases, the Terms shall terminate, including, without limitation, your license to use the Services, except that the following sections shall continue to apply: II, III, V, and VI>>>End of Quote.
This is of course, the "catch all " clause, which allows them to cancel your account "for any or no reason". However it applies to terminating your account and not suspending it. Suspending an account is not limiting it, neither is it ceasing it.
Any or no reason has to be a reason which is within the bounds of the Twitter Terms and Conditions or Twitter Rules. They do not make it clear which Twitter Rules you have violated which has resulted in your suspension.
Items (i) What Terms have  you violated?
Items (ii) Have you subjected them to any possible legal exposure...and if so...would they care to state what exposure...if only so that you can correct it...
Items (iii) does not apply, you make fair use
Items (iv) Does this term apply to all Twitter users as well as you...and if so, why hasn't every one elses account been suspended? This is discrimination.
Items (v) is to do with sending out a virus...it wasn't you who was responsible for wreaking all that havoc of late, was it?
Item (vi) I have been unable to find this item, perhaps you could ask them for clarification, just in case it is part of the any or no reason...
They do not mention which Twitter Rules (if any) apply to your suspension. Perhaps they ca enlighten you...

One of the nice things about us human beings is that we all fart, shit, piss, fuck, eat, drink, exchange chemicals, reproduce, create dna, pass on dna and our genes and our memes, and are capable of making mistakes, committing errors, omissions and commissions; talking truth, deception, nonsense and killing and maiming and torturing our fellow human beings in the name of logic. We pass on good and bad habits, some of which are good at the time and then become bad, and vikki verki. It is what equalises all of us, and makes us human beings. I take great consolation and pride in the fact that even the Queen of England has eaten her own shit at some time in her life, along with the other great and the good personalities and titled personnel who manage, or run our society.

If one goes about exposing all the apples in Her Majesty's Government's Apple Cart, so jeopordising the business for the cart owners, such as naming the spooky apples and trying to upset the apple cart, influencing international pricing and trade in information and commode-ities then one can expect nothing else other than a reaction of some kind. After all producing good apples is very expensive and takes a lot of time. You Americans don't realise just how lucky you are to have the protection of a written constitution with its 1st and 5th Amendments. Here in the UK we have nothing but RIPA and the full force of the secrecy laws, and the Home Secretary and some judge to save us from the vagaries of the Intelligence and Security Services. It is called democracy. We never learn anything, unless we go to somewhere like Cryptome, or the Ecaudorian Embassy to get our information....

Now, with algorithms becoming the judges and A.I. artificial intelligence, as well as artificial insemination, we are making our own new destiny. In the Transhumanist era, we are all becoming post human...or is it human posts...

I trust that I have been able to help you in some small way and to enlighten our colleagues in the vagaries of international platform law...like it applies to Uber, where platforms try to avoid any responsibility for their actions whatsoever....and of course, pay no taxes, but take the credit for dissemination of the truth and non fake news.

If I can help any further, please do not hesitate to ask. In the meantime, I would be very pleased to be kept up to date on the state of the play.

Dear John,

I see that Twitter, for some reason...unapparent to me...has suspended
your Twitter Account...and that you have opened another one and replied
to a query which asked you if you were aware why your Twitter account
had been suspended...to which you replied..."No".

Have you since found out why your Twitter account has been
suspended...or have you any thoughts on the reason(s), why? Will you be
exploring the issue further with Twitter, regarding the suspension of

The reason I ask, is because I took Twitter's advice and had a look at
their Terms and Conditions most carefully and couldn't find anything, or
any item which you may have breached which justified the suspension of
your account.  Obviously someone has complained or made a comment about
something you have published on Twitter and Twitter has found it to be
of sufficient reason to suspend your account, but what it is, or what it
can be, or who it was who has done such a thing...I haven't a clue.

Perhaps you might find it interesting to find out what it was that has
upset them so, who it was who complained, when they complained and under
what Section of their Terms and Conditions your account has been suspended.

But there again, if you don't have the inclination because you have too
much already on your plate, I do understand, and as it appears easy to
open another one, why bother.

I am not a member of Twitter myself.  Personally, I have never found a
need for it, apart from looking at your own Twitterings and references
via Twitter to other subjects in which I am interested, and I would
really miss your contributions there if you were to be suspended once again.

With kind regards,


P.S. You don't think it could have been the President or a member of his
family who has complained do you...On second thoughts, perish the
thought, forget that.  I doubt if they would have time to read your
Twitter account, they are so busy with their own...
