Report: Twitter to Start Sanctioning Users for Their Offline Behavior

Twitter will start sanctioning users for their offline behavior starting Saturday, according to a report.

According to the Verge, “What’s new is that Twitter now plans to do at least some monitoring of verified users’ offline behavior as well, to determine whether it is consistent with its rules.”

Next, you will have to sign an oath.

    Intrusive ghits. Eff them and the parakeet they flew in on. Who do they think they are?
    I hope they lose their financial shirts even further and they become an echo chamber unto themselves.

    Well, I do not use, nor will I use twitter – I have always thought it was used mainly by twits; its “management” is certainly made up of twits (def – twit: 1. Informal A foolishly annoying person; 2. informal chiefly Brit a foolish or stupid person; idiot).

      Hope, of course, doesn’t use that joke any more cause it’s no longer “correct.” Also because he’s dead.

    Not that I want people to abandon it and have dueling echo chambers, but anyone with a remotely right of centre political leaning would be best to set up an account at and run them both for the time being.
    Sadly that does seem to be the way it’s going; there will be two separate social medias for people based on their political beliefs. I see a right-wing Facebook alternative popping up soon if they follow the trend.

    Or your first born. I quit Twitter and Facebook as well as Google last year. I don’t want anything to do with companies who don’t respect free speech or your privacy.

    It’s time to systematically sue employees of Twitter for their offline behavior. Start with the middle tier of employees least able to financially defend themselves. And keep attacking them until they quit.

    So twitter has decided to open itself to lawsuits by endorsing content, based on the terms of service that allow the blue checkmarks that will be controlled by their actions. Let the lawsuits begin.
