Keith Gill is currently a corporate marketing manager for @avisolve.
His activiities, along with other “goon squad” of Empire Avenue people helped change Twitter’s abuse policy according to Ethel Newlin of the San Francisco District Attorney’s office.
Sadly, he continues to troll and abuse others who are simply warning others of his abusive ways.
When will Twitter stand up for a clean, honest and forthright marketplace on Twitter, and protect their consumers from such abusive people as Keith Gill?
Does Twitter actually intend to protect consumers, or are people just freely abused?
According to The Verge, quoting former CEO Dick Costolo,
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo is taking personal responsibility for his platform’s chronic problems with harassment and abuse, telling employees that he is embarrassed for the company’s failures and would soon be taking stronger action to eliminate trolls. He said problems with trolls are driving away the company’s users. “We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we’ve sucked at it for years,” Costolo wrote in an internal memo obtained by The Verge. “It’s no secret and the rest of the world talks about it every day. We lose core user after core user by not addressing simple trolling issues that they face every day.”
Why doesn’t Keith Gill simply fix his own house and stop abusing Twitter’s customers?
This is, to put it mildly, not good enough. Freedom of expression means little as our underlying philosophy if we continue to allow voices to be silenced because they are afraid to speak up. We need to do a better job combating abuse without chilling or silencing speech.
Simply because Keith Gill doesn’t seem to accept the validity of consumer affairs blogging shouldn’t leave a person free to abuse everyone else engaging in free speech.
