It’s clear to me that Twitter’s problems are their own creation.
An institutionalized culture of not listening to valid feedback, arrogance and lack of business ethics and common sense.
When I started blogging about the abuse at Empire Avenue, what I quickly noticed was the relative impunity with which leaders from Empire Avenue threatened and doxed me on Twitter.
Chris Sandys, a leader at Empire Avenue, wanted the abuse of Empire Avenue customers “off the record”, rather than deal with the abuse.
Empire Avenue Team Leader Nance Larson and Leaders Chris Sandys, Gareth Davies were able to target me for doxing and massive harassment for blogging about abusive practices on Empire Avenue.
Keith Gill, aka DigitalKeith joined in after I noted his false advertising being run through Empire Avenue social media promotional missions.
And they were able to openly export that abuse right on twitter. And it continues unabated.
After a couple months of emails to support inquiring as to why with no real response I filed complaints with the San Francisco District Attorney’s office Consumers Protection Unit and The California Department of Justice (x-ref 615640).
During that time other much higher profile accounts such as @Femfreq and an Electronic arts gaming executive also talked about the massive abuse they were sustaining, death threats etc.
I was not alone in the abuse piled on me.
Twitter simply allowed customers to threaten other customers to the point that the mass market was made aware that Twitter didn’t care about their customers.
Twitter tried to address this with Dick Costolo taking responsibility and Twitter General Council Vijaya Gadde writing a Washington Post Op-Ed about the abuse.
I hoped changes would be made, but certain leaders of Empire Kred continued to be able to be openly abusive with little response from Twitter.
One such abuser is Keith Gill, AKA DigitalKeith.
You see, Jim Cramer has tired of the libel Twitter allows. The serial lies, abuse and harassment customers can sustain.
However you can tell and SHOW Twitter how people are serially lying about you and Twitter does not care.
They simply allow people like Keith Gill to continue their abuse on and on and on and on.
This despite having rules defining such lying as spam.
Some people don’t leave Twitter. Some stay to let others know what Twitter is.
Twitter is a company that allows massive abuse of it’s own customers by it’s own customers and censors journalism and truth.
Twitter has polticized abuse. And the free market knows it.
Basically Twitter General Council Vijaya Gadde’s reaction to me when I asked her for help with cyberbullies and cyberstalkers sums up Twitter.
She blocked me.
Twitter simply does not care.
They even suspend victims of rape.
And Empire Avenue? Despite being bought out by Kred, and rebranded EmpireKred, the truth about how they act is tumbling out, as well.
Goon squads, trolls and mobs run rampant on Twitter, ruining social media.
