When I first joined Twitter, I created the account name "@MandyBaby40". It wasn't long before my account was hacked and taken by some teen. Or hacked by a friend of hers and given to her. I was like "f**k it" and just stayed away from Twitter. Eventually I made a new Twitter. I had all but forgotten about everything until, by chance, I came upon a tweet from my original account that was stolen. Every so often I would report that account to Twitter. I lost track of how many times I did. Eventually I stopped. But,later On I came upon this tweet. Whoa and behold, the person that stole my original account lost it and created a new one. Not a smart move to whine about Twitter deleting an account you stole because you out yourself as the one who had it stolen. I tried to change my name to my original. I got back an error that the name wasn't available. I checked and my stolen account was gone. Apparently Twitter did delete it. Thank goodness on that because people who steal accounts should not be allowed to keep them. I contacted Twitter and actually got a non-generic response. I got a long speech about how when an account is deleted, it takes awhile for the name to be "released" and allowed to use again. So I kept trying each day I logged on to Twitter. Just as Sunday October 13 came to a close, I was able to claim my old name back. In a way it feels like justice was served. The person that stole my original account lost it. I was able to eventually use "MandyBaby40" again.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admits conservative staffers 'don't feel safe to express their opinions' at liberal tech giant Can he blame them? He's created a hostile work environment in a sense. He's trying to protect his own skin.
