I'm generally open minded and unprejudiced, so I was surprised when I got suspended from Twitter for this tweet. I've left mine and my friend's Twitter names on there because we have nothing to hide, we don't use racist names or anything. FFS. Can anyone shed light about why this tweet was so 'hateful'? I've appealed because it is so stupid.
KikiCat said:Not really, no. lol. But I will assume that you understand why I am annoyed/ confused about being banned from Twitter due to something so silly.
Peter is stating that that when some people…
You know what I find triggering? PC nonsense like this. It makes my blood boil. People don’t seem to understand that others are not to blame if your miss understanding causes you to find something offensive…
PC is a slippery slope, or rather a low traction decline if you prefer (*cough*) into authoritarianism, and it ultimately it serves to divide people further. I expect the majority of people observe this…
as someone else pointed out the monkey emoji has been used as a symbol of hate on that platform and unfortunately you was caught in the crosshair.
I dont know if you know about twitters flagging system but its not reviewed by humans its determined by bots. So if they get a report a bot automatically determines if it as bad or good. It doesnt take context or intention most times. Just be very careful about twitter because of that use.
it has nothing to do with PC or anything like that its just a broken platform where people can abuse the flagging system knowing a bot will determine things and it usually determines it to be harmful. twitter is too big for humans to review every report.
you could quote a movie like a character says "i will hurt you" and someone will flag that then get you banned for violence.
I shan't be using any monkey emojis again to show embarrassment that's for sure. They should remove the monkeys from the emoji list tbh. We'll see.
the meaning of emojis can change in quite surprising ways so be careful with them
Good thinking Batman. Especially for old people like me! I'm not down with the youth
apparently you don't use the thumbs up anymore
Oh right, why is that?
dunno, i just read it somewhere, something about only old people using it
Oh well I AM old so they'll have to like it or lump it.
You aren't allowed to use the OK symbol now, where you make a circle with your finger and thumb and stick up the other 3 fingers. I read that is a white supremacist symbol, I can't remember why.
Also the number 88 is racist, so are brackets. I don't know why and I can't keep up. I like to watch motor racing and obviously some of them have the number 88 on their bikes/ cars, so they aren't being racist.
