Guess it's time to renew the push for Mastodon.
Apparently a hypothetical self-defense is a permanent ban from Twitter.
@0xtr yep. Some idiot wasn't getting that government can't force vaccines so I spelled it out for him (that someone trying to do it will just get shot)
@lukedashjr @0xtr oh jesus christ, welcome on here, something very similar happened to me. I suggested we are going to need a way to find out who is vaccinated and who isn't, cause I don't want vaccinated people in my store. thing is, I don't have a store, but I got banned anyways. then they wanted my phone number and I just didn't bother anymore. f. twitter.
@lukedashjr I have a permanent ban on my account as well..
Managed to avoid it so far..use a burner number, and you cannot use the same name/handle. Maybe something similar, or even in a different order.
Change profile pic to be sure..I've inverted the colors in mine not sure if it's relevant..
Last account was banned instantly when I changed my name to match the previous one. Although the same name with 'the third' after was good..
Do not use the app but the web app, use a VPN etc
@btcbraj Sounds not worth the effort. My ~45k followers would still have to find the new account, and likely it'd just get re-banned anyway...
If people are going to find a new account, might as well make that be this Mastodon account and get it over with?
@onryo They strongly implied it by linking "We will immediately and permanently suspend any account found to be posting violent threats." and the email says "Note that if you attempt to evade a permanent suspension by creating new accounts, we will suspend your new accounts."
“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” --- Frank Zappa
@ryanc Haha, I wonder what Twitter would do if someone started mirroring Mastodon accounts of banned users...
@lukedashjr If your ban will be removed, you can use twitter <-> mastodon Crossposting system. I also do that just in case, to promote Mastodon
@lukedashjr everytime there is a censorship incidence etc. on Twitter we move over to Mastodon but after a couple of weeks no one cares anymore.
@tester Does Pleroma support native federation with Twitter?
Twitter ban aside, that's the one killer feature I could see making a difference...
