#Twitter Moderation Utterly Unpredicatable, Allows Abuse, Moderates Truth

Twitter insists they are trying to allow and respect free speech while moderating abuse.

However, when Twitter moderates truth, and allows lies to stand unmoderated, that apears not to be the case.

Keith Gill, AKA @digitalkeith visited my blog about community building and left the following comment with the linked below tweet embedded.

Given that the tweet isn’t factual, I wonder why it’s allowed to stand?

I am not anonymous and Keith Gill was moderated by instagram for cyberbullying when he posted that very image.

I wrote a blog addressing Mr. Gill’s contentions and tweeted it off the “sharing” system in place on WordPress.

Conduct Offensive

 

 

 

My question is entirely legitimate given Mr. Gill’s strange comment on my blog.

And the tweet was in keeping with Twitter’s stated policy as per this email received when I was being impersonated online.

And of course this tweet (and blog) is based on a Tweet form @garyloper to @digitalkeith about his offensive conduct.

 

Can a brand, or a person that represents themselves as a brand suppress the truth on Twitter?

The individual is a digital marketing manager for @avisolve.

Incidentally Klout confirmed to me that gaming of Klout is possible but not considered economically feasible.

Can Twitter moderation determine what honest satire, commentary and news is when it’s presented on one account?

I think not.

However after the CA DoJ inquiry into Twitter and the SF DA’s office twice opening files in the consumers protection unit I can only assume this behavior on Twitter’s part is intentional.

The abuse has been ongoing since 5/2014 with Keith Gill joining in in August 2014 when I discovered him running false advertising through Empire Avenue’s “missions” system.

The missions system is used by people to promote their social media posts.

And as CBC news reports,

However, one advocate said the real test will be how Twitter enforces the rules.

“The new rules are definitely an improvement,” said Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Digital Terrorism and Hate Project at the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. “But the question is: Will they be accompanied by a more proactive attitude toward making sure repeat offenders are identified and permanently removed?”

A Twitter spokesman declined comment Tuesday.

In a blog post, the company said: “The updated language emphasizes that Twitter will not tolerate behaviour intended to harass, intimidate, or use fear to silence another user’s voice. As always, we embrace and encourage diverse opinions and beliefs — but we will continue to take action on accounts that cross the line into abuse.”

 

 

I’m still waiting for the reality to match Twitter’s public posts.
