A Twitter user in Japan was banned from using Twitter because he killed a mosquito while tweeting.
He had tweeted the image of a dead insect along with the caption Where do you get off biting me all over while I’m just trying to relax and watch TV? Die! (Actually you’re already dead).”
Where do you get off biting me all over while I’m just trying to relax and watch TV? Die! (Actually you’re already dead).
Here is the image:
After tweeting this, he received a message that his Twitter account has been blocked and cannot be reactivated. This is what message said,
Your account has been frozen because it was used to send messages containing threats. The notification read Tweets containing threats are not allowed under our terms of service. This account cannot be reactivated.
Isn’t it strange? I mean, what kind of threat did the user pose to a mosquito?
Well, the guy immediately made a new account by the name DaydreamMatcha to protest against the decision. This is what he tweeted with his new account.
My previous account was permanently frozen after I said I killed a mosquito. Is this a violation?
This tweet was retweeted more than 31,000 times and liked by more than 27,000 Twitter users. But soon, this account was removed, too.
Seeing such insensitive behavior by Twitter, the netizens are asking some serious questions.
And yet this is OK… Hmm… 🤔 pic.twitter.com/n5iqx7nvk1
