Twitter: Why we silenced Rose McGowan after she slammed alleged sex pest Harvey Weinstein


Re: Sense of proportion

>>Truly I wonder, what could they have done about the doxing without, um, doxing?

They can provide an error message to the user more specific than "You're blocked because of reasons".

I had a Twitter account for all of a month and then I got blocked by them. No real explanation, just a vague reference to "automated behaviour". I *think* it's because my partner who uses Twitter a bit more than me had his account open in a different browser on the same computer and thus two accounts from the same IP. But it's only a wild guess. Twitter's messages are very unhelpful.
