Do you wonder why it’s become well known that twitter doesn’t value their own consumers and allows serial abuse and harassment?
When @jack took over, Jim Cramer urged them to help fight libel on Twitter.
Although simply a small part of a worse pattern of abuse that takes place on Twitter, violent threats and doxing, being lied about by people that you have blocked, with little to no recourse is costing Twitter customers.
When such maliciously abuse people, that are otherwise claiming to be cybersecurity professionals lie, it’s extremely frustrating.
Yet that’s what Asher Langston does.
Asher is employed by Juniper Networks, and is apparently free to tweet lies on company time (I’m in CA, and these tweets appear to have occured on regular work hours) about myself.
Given his longstand history of abuse (he has tweeted he had no idea who might want him fired after a busy week), it remains clear that safety and privacy are simply not a concern of Twitter’s for their customers.
This despite Twitter rules which ostensibly outlaws such practices, defining such activity as spam.
Twitter tweets are public.
Responding to them with legitimate intent to discuss a matter of public interest is perfectly appropriate and what twitter is for.
That the lady appears to have been willing to integrate what she learned on tv into her counseling practice however is not really appropriate in the State of California to my knowledge.
And when a tweet crossed my timeline that a licensed professional councilor was going to amend her practice to teach something she learned on television from @deray, I was concerned about it.
I tweeted her to inquire, and tweeted my local Congressman. Congressman Costas and just slightly to the east of me, Congressman Devin Nunes.
Apparently in Asher land contacting your representatives on Twitter is done to “intimidate.”
Incidentailly I believe the congressmen are democrat and republican, respectively.
He surely didn’t ask me why I did it. I did it because I was concerned with the efficacy of professional counseling by a licensee in the State of California.
Such harassment by serial liars and cyberbullies that you can’t even block is part of the reason twitter has the reputation it has.
They should clean up Twitter and start with getting rid of the obvious problem children, like Asher.
By the way, Asher doesn’t hold himself to the same apparent standard. He researches people that tweet him.
Double standard much, Asher?
