My Twitter account has been suspended for moments, and I’m already melting down

My Twitter account has been suspended for moments, and I’m already melting down

Consider this one of the most self-indulgent posts that I am going to foist on you this week.

Twitter suspended my account. I’m not sure why. I’m assuming at this moment that its due to a technicality. I expect it to be restored in the next few hours. However, given that I can’t tell you how odd it is to lose access to Twitter on that service itself, where I would usually put such thoughts, I’m blogging it. You’re not really welcome.

Here’s what happens if you are helpless Twitter devotee and are blocked from the microblogging platform: Oh shit, I’ve been blocked. [F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5]. Blink. [F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5]. F***. What did I do last night? [A mental check]. I’ll read the Suspended Accounts page. And again. Ok, there’s supposed to be a form that I’m to fill out. Wait, I’m a f****** tech blogger, why don’t I get extra love? Where is this damn form? F***.

That’s where I’m at right now. Remember the time that Gmail locked you out of your inbox all morning and it was a veritable cluster? What’s funny is that I bet you whined about it on Twitter. I sure as hell did. But I want to talk about not being able to use Twitter, on Twitter.

I broke down and posted a panicked ‘tha f***’ to Facebook and felt dirty.

Alright, I’m going to get back to being a little technology bitch and fretting about my pathetic digital life. But really, Twitter, can I come home now?

Update: I’m back. @Alex is back in action.
