San Francisco, Aug 31: Beware before killing a mosquito as twitter may block you, just like it banned Japanese man.
Yes, its true social networking site “Twitter” has banned a Japanese man after he posted a photo of a mosquito he killed on his page.
It started on August 20 when the user @nemuismywife was bitten by a mosquito as he was watching TV, the BBC reported.
“Where do you get off biting me all over while I’m just trying to relax and watch TV? Die! (Actually you’re already dead),” he said in a tweet after killing the mosquito with a picture.
Following this Twitter sent him a message, saying that his account had been frozen and cannot be reactivated.
Later, he made a new Twitter account, @DaydreamMatcha and tweeted: “My previous account was permanently frozen after I said I killed a mosquito. Is this a violation?”
His angry tweet was retweeted more than 31,000 times and liked more than 27,000 Twitter users.
Tweeting abuse can get a user banned from the platform but Twitter’s decision to ban @nemuismywife has attracted ridicule on social media.
However, the micro-blogging site has came up with a number of new measures to curb online abuse and harassment on its platform.
