So far, twitter has not said anything on the issue on ground. What’s wrong?
The thing is every social network has rules and regulations you have to agree to before becoming a legal member. So as a person, if you know you want to be a user of a particular Social network app you’ll have to just agree to their terms and conditions which really doesn’t sound that difficult.
On Sunday, twitter seemed to have been penalizing users that weren’t breaking the rules at all.
The Forbidden “M” Word On Twitter
Something new is up. A lot of Twitter users have been laying complaints that they’ve been banned temporarily from the tweeting platform for posting tweets that include the word “Memphis”. It’s been resolved quietly though and till now, Twitter hasn’t said a word regarding the issue.
Memphis is a US city located in southwest Tennessee. The Twitter users that noticed this are mostly fans of soccer/ football. The French professional football club Olympique Lyonnais tweeted on Twitter, asked if they could finally talk about “him” making reference to Dutch Midfielder Memphis Depay.
The internet got out the juicy joke and had fun with it. Twitter Users trying to incite one and another into tweeting “Memphis” somehow. Asking questions like ” what’s that US city called again?” and “what is Depay’s first name?”
More determined pranksters tried their possible best to make American professional basketball team Memphis Grizzlies to tweet out the name of their own city. The team on the other hand respondent on their account with a GIF and funny caption.
Why Users Gets Banned?
A lot of fans guessed this is happening as a result of Depay having his name trademarked, though we really can’t say for sure that’s the real reason. Removed tweets were replaced with a notice stating “This tweet violated the Twitter rules”. Most users still trying to play smartly added accents to some of the letters i.e “Memphìs” or ” Mèmphis”.
This new turn on Twitter isn’t intentional, compared to the band at the beginning of March- Twitter purposely started suspending users that continuously post COVID-19 vaccine misinformation.
Make Sure You’ve Read And Understood Twitter Rules
Do well to read through rules and regulations and understand them before agreeing or proceeding. So far so good there’s no sign yet of Twitter addressing the incident. If you do disobey, your account will be banned and there’s little or no assurance you’ll get it back. So, just obey the rules and enjoy the features.
