I opened up a twitter account earlier this week. It was quick, easy. What a rush reading the tweets of all the celebrities to follow. Steve Harvey, Oprah, The President of the United States and my personal fav – Judge Mathis. But wait. Not so fast. Less than twelve hours later, my account was suspended – shut down for aggressive behavior! What? How aggressive could I be with five tweets and zero followers?
I went to the website in search of tech support. Yikes! No contact number. But I didn’t stop there. I was determined to hunt down a human. Got it! Found the number on the internet. Still, there was no one to speak to. The recording just referred me back to the internet. The light bulb finally came on. Why not just delete the account and start over. But wait. Not so fast. No option to delete the account. Are you kidding me?
Out of options, I followed the twitter guidelines and contested the suspension by linking to a website. Next, I fired off a not so nice email. I waited for a response. And I waited. Frustrated, I abandoned the account and opened up a new one.
Twitter did eventually respond. (In fairness, their response time was actually not that unreasonable. I was just impatient). Seems my account got mixed up in spam. Twitter apologized for the inconvenience and restored the account! Thanks twitter! You rock!
