Twitter is Shadow Banning me again...


From Google:
Stealth banning (also called Shadow banning and Hell banning) is a practice used by some online community managers to block content added by spammers and Internet trolls, as well as other individuals whose interests do not coincide with the managers'.
Stealth banning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
If you check my timeline from last night there was no reason to pick me off, like abusive or hateful language. The only reason why they are doing it is out of rank partisan disagreement.

No. It is the Ted Williams thing Lem.

Seriously. Put up Mickey Mantle or Derek Jeter and you will be cool.

Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc. are having a hard time w/ the interwebs. They are not able to adjust to the swing right and their inability to control that. Technology is a mofo. Cops have had a hard time adjusting to the ubiquity of video cameras. You can no longer control information. For the most part, that's a good thing.

Trooper York said...

One of the major reasons I really like Trump is that he takes no prisoners. He just revoked the press credentials of the Washington Post. So now they can't join the press gaggle that is covering him and can be arrested if they try.

We have to push back. We don't have to take it. We don't have to take it from the Washington Post and we don't have to take it from Facebook and we don't have to take it from Google.

I agree we need to push back. And I like seeing Trump do it on this. Obama is ironically helping Trump (a lot) with how Obama is dealing with Orlando.

Trooper York said...

It is par for the course for the Jug Eared Jesus. He just never dealt with someone who would fight back.

Ryan and Romney and all the rest of them are pussies. They are showing it even now. I think there are millions upon millions of Americans who had enough of this shit.

Of course people are mad. Shouldn't we be? Or should we just lay down and take it?

Trooper York said...

Evi the time has come to speak up. Not nit picking details about bullshit like Trump University. The Civil court system will take care of that one way or another. Those scumbags at Red State and the weak sisters like Mitt have no excuse. Hillary and Obama are showing what they are all about.

This fucking terrorist went to Saudi Arabia. He got money from them. Just like Hillary. Just like fucking Bush for that matter. The same fuckin towelhead cocksuckers who paid for the scumbags who flew the planes into the towers.

AllenS said...

All of this terrorist crap is depressing me. Magnum Force is on the tv. I think I'll watch Inspector Callahan straighten every thing out. It will put a smile on my face.

What does the chart say? Your tweets have no impressions the last 24 hours?

I'm really good at charts. I got this. No wait, I got this. It goes 3PM result RESULT RESULT bang nothing then 3PM again. Conclusion: 3PM to 3PM means one whole day. and the result bumps show they abruptly stop. And that's weird.

Is that right? Is that right? Is that right? Do I win?

I'm sorry about you being shadow banned, how rude! But I have my own problems right now, Dude.

I've been very busy. Being a gardener. And we gardener types are sensitive to plant needs and environmental challenges. And diapers. With all this in mind great care was taken to make sure the plant's future needs will all be met. I miscalculated number of little plants so was short where I thought I'd be long and it turned out to be the perfect amount but imperfect mixture so I went with what i have. It's all good. The last plant is in the dirt for this project. All four railing baskets are drought protected, leak protected, filled with rich loose soil that holds water and fully planted. Ten minutes later it rained like hell, and I mean H-E-double hell, hardest downpour this year, then hail, first hail this year, small stones in abundance for a long period that beat the living shit out of the little plants that I just finished planting.

And i have the storm recorded as proof. But the railing garden is immediately below the frame so their destruction is not recorded. And that's a bummer. But I'm studying the sky with that, not the new plants.

And I'm sitting there seeing all this lightening again. And I don't have a lightening detector. It's set off by infrared light emitted immediately preceding a strike. And I'm sick and tired of missing all these great lightening strikes. So I bought a detector. And it better work too. Everybody complains about those things, and all with legitimate reasons.

This crop destruction is part and parcel of a farmer's life. I believe my wheat farmer friend is dead because he does not respond to emails or calls. He told me of this farmer's plight. In the case of a wheat farmer, a hail storm like this can cost over $100,000. Any tiny thing like this can ruin their crop or cause another expense. Re-seeding the whole thing would be incredibly expensive. So if all of my little plants must be replaced, so what, eh, just get more and plug them in. The whole thing is set up to accept them. No big dealio. They might survive. If they can handle this they can handle anything.

The storm is passed now and white clouds are being recorded. The camera was hail abused too and it just kept clicking away through the whole thing. Hail stones bounced right into the apartment. I love that. Colorado has the best weather ever.

You know, I was almost blind for most of the day yesterday. And a few tweets managed to piss them off.

I was that good, if I say so myself.

I wear the banning as a badge of honor.

I got my new glasses btw. Thank you spenelli and AllenS

I saw a car yesterday that was covered in dimples. The roof, hood and trunk were all dented. I considered the physics of a piece of ice falling some distance through the atmosphere then impacting sheet steel with sufficient force to cause obvious dents.

First thing I thought was "Glad I wasn't out in that storm!" Then I thought about how much damage it would do to crops.

Colorado gets much worse hail than we do here *checks Wiki* - yep you guys are in the record books.

Lem, It was simply my way of saying thanks for the work you do here. I really love this place.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Troop, I speak up all the time. I am not about bashing Trump over Trump U. I was mad about Trump giving that topic attention over the economic issues of that week (stuff he could have gone after Hillary and Obama on).

Obviously this terrorist attack is a completely different and overriding issue. Trump responded appropriately, Clinton cravenly at best, Obama abysmally.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

If my car was white and covered by dimples, I might put a Titleist logo on it.

ndspinelli said...

Insurance companies HATE hail storms. You can see hail damage to your car. However, hail damage to your roof is often not visible to the untrained eye. After a hail storm have your roof inspected by a roofer first. Then by your insurance adjuster.

rcocean said...

Sorry for being a social media ignoramus but what is the chart measuring? People who like your tweets?

Write real slow, so I can understand.

rcocean said...

My relative from South Dakota says it has hail the size of baseballs. Exaggeration?

Michael Haz said...

Lem, go back to posting nudes for a few days and everything will work out.

Sixty Grit said...

Not an exaggeration, RC - you can look up pictures of them. Some hail stones weigh a pound or more. As we said in the building trades "HEADACHE!"

Lem said...

I can't even do that MH. Didn't you hear? the classics (nudes included I think) are under assault at the most prestigious schools.

Sorry to hear that, Lem. You're not even particularly trumpestuous. It must be your lack of Hillarity.

So that's who that is. I always wondered but never asked Lem. I figured it was just some old Red Sox player's face frozen in time.

Cultural Marxism for the internet masses

ndspinelli said...

rcocean, Not hyperbole by your relatives. Midwest hail can be a mofo. We had a hail storm in southern Wisconsin about 10 years ago. It was fairly widespread w/ different sized hail in different areas. My neighborhood was hardest hit. We all needed new roofs, siding, and car damage. I was upstairs when the first hail hit. Sounded like large rocks hitting the roof. The hail was larger than baseballs, close to softball size. They were the largest I had ever seen. I have seen baseball sized hail once prior. Seen golf ball sized several times.

Lem, the tweets I sent out yesterday should have go me banned outright from twitter. nothing. Surprised you even blipped on their radar.

AllenS said...

I met a guy from England years ago that said he had seen hail the size of cricket balls. I said I wasn't impressed.

That joke is hilarious when you imagine "cricket" as genitive.

AllenS said...

I had to look up the word "genitive". Pretty sure I've never used the word before.

chickelit said...

It was grammar snark intended for rude erudites (not you). "Genitive" and "genital" share a common root. "genitive cricket" would be "cricket's balls" which is what you implied (but didn't write).

I can't help the way I think. I was made that way.

ndspinelli said...

You can help what you do. We all got the joke w/o over analysis. We get it, you're smart.

Lem said...

I'm going to pretend I didn't see that ;)

chickelit said...

I'm glad my joke hit its intended target w/o explanation.
