An Open Letter to Twitter on their Kafka-like Interventions

I write because this will be indexed. I have no way to talk to a human being at Twitter. They have harassed me for a month now. They say I might be a spammer or an automaton. They make me change my password – at times hourly. And now when I can log in I cannot post a tweet. This is probably all automated but it is Kafka nightmare material. I have one of the best accounts on Twitter. I have been there almost since the start. I do not expect that Twitter will ever apologize or even that they will relent. All I know is that this is an insult. The only recourse I have is to float this out there and see if it has ANY effect.

Twitter continues its interventions as of 11:00 ET

This is their message:

“This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can’t complete this action right now. Please try again later.”
