Herein below is an email to Twitter regarding their engaging in censorship to protect California Attorney General Jerry Brown, Oakland City Attorney John Russo and Alameda County D.A. Tom Orloff’s corruption in an ongoing case reported to the U. S. Attorney General, Department of Justice.

Ginger,

On October 17, and 21, 2009  I sent emails to Twitter complaining about a “suspension” of my account (@nowtruth) for allegedly replying to tweets sent to me and “suspicious activity”!
I have not received any response to my rejection of the claims and contesting of the “suspension”. The idea that someone can have their account suspended for replying to tweets sent to them is preposterous!!! Isn’t that the process? Further, there were @mentions, not replys, for which your system does not seem to be able to distinguish the difference!!
However, when someone tweets you, you can and should reply with a meaningful response. ALL of the @mentions/replies/responses were to related items or news of a related nature to the attention of those mentioned, not anyone else. So there is no spamming issue. What’s the offense?
There is NOTHING suspicious about this action! Were you contacted with a report of reply spam? Our tweets are all you need to establish their validity. The tweet was regarding the corruption on behalf of California Attorney General Jerry Brown, Oakland City Attorney John Russo and Alameda County D.A. Tom Orloff in an ongoing case reported to the U. S. Attorney General, Department of Justice. We have received several @mentions from people sympathetic to those parties had have tried tirelessly to silence this case and the information about it from getting out to the masses in an effort to protect them. The specific tweet in question was displaying an email from John Russo threatening a KPFA reporter, Gabrielle Wilson, if she proceeded with a radio broadcast of a show with Brown, Russo and the plaintiff in the case.

During the week of August 23, 2009 Miss Wilson received a phone call from Evan Westrep from Brown’s office. He left a voice mail message for her at radio station KPFA stating he would pass her interview request along to Brown’s schedulers.

During that same week, Miss Wilson received emails and phone calls from Oakland City Attorney Russo’s press director Alex Katz. One email Katz sent to her and Sasha Lilley, interim Program Director at KPFA, with a cc: to Mark Moromodi, Supervising Deputy for the Oakland City Attorney, proclaiming that City Attorney John Russo was not involved in the case, yet he wanted her to answer questions as to why she wanted to provide a forum for the plaintiff, al-Hakim whom he alleged had posted threatening videos about John Russo. Heres an copy of that email that was a twitpic sent to our followers:

Katz followed up that email with a voicemail message he left for Miss Wilson after the close of business just hours before the scheduled broadcast was to occur threatening her and warned Miss Wilson not to broadcast the interview and demanded she speak with him before she aired the scheduled program. He did this though he wanted Miss Wilson and KPFA to believe that John Russo and the City Attorney’s office was not involved in the case and had nothing to hide! You can listen to that voicemail message here.

Luis Medina, a manager in the music director’s office at KPFA then calls Miss Wilson just hours prior to the scheduled broadcast and leaves a voicemail message warning her that it was very important for the broadcast not to occur. He also stated that there might be very serious repercussions taken if she were to proceed as planned. She even received a phone call from the long-time regular show host, Emmitt Powell whom was contacted by the station in response to Russo’s effort to censor the show.
Miss Wilson proceeded to host the program all alone to comply with the City Attorney and KPFA’s censorship directive…without any of her invited guests. You can listen to that voicemail message here.

Miss Wilson was forced to make at least three announcements to inform the public whom had tuned in to hear this intriguing panel examine this critical civil rights and corruption case in an important election year, that this incredible show had been canceled due to KPFA’s censorship by Oakland City Attorney John Russo! You can listen to those announcements here.

Russo proceeded to engage in censorship by forcing the cancellation of the show and trying to conceal it from the public. Russo and Brown claim that they are not involved in the case yet irrefutable evidence prove otherwise! If they are not involved and have nothing to hide, why censor the show? Those actions are public now as the reporter released a statement on their crimes of which this is merely another instance of. Now for you.
You aren’t engaging in censorship are you? Have you been contacted by any of these parties or their representatives, including Alex Katz, Joe Trippi, Jeremy D. Thompson, or anyone else regarding this alleged violation of Twitter policy? Is this a problem of your system not being able to differentiate between a reply and an @mention?
I certainly know that if you were investigating suspicious activity in this case, you need to take a look at the actions of those that got you to comply with their desire to censor this case and their continuing crimes for which Twitter founder Evan Williams, co-founder Biz Stone, and Twitter are now involved. We will not stop our civil and criminal investigation in this matter as we proceed, it only widens and deepens in it’s breadth and depth.
There’s nothing even remotely suspicious about our tweets, we will not be censored, and we are continuing to investigate yours and their suspicious activity and to prosecute those involved in these continuing crimes. Anything you need to further investigate feel free to call.

We look forward to your response.

Re: Twitter Support: update on “To Whom It May Concern,    How can an account be suspende…”

Ginger,

How can an account be suspended for replying to messages sent to YOU? Isn’t that the process? When someone tweets you, you can and should reply with a meaningful response. ALL of the replies/responses were to related items or news of a related nature. What’s the offense?
There is NOTHING suspicious about this action! Were you contacted with a report of reply spam? Our tweets are all you need to establish their validity. You aren’t engaging in censorship are you?
Thanks for the response.

Ticket #605636: To Whom It May Concern, How can an account be suspende…

ginger, Oct 21 03:04 pm (PDT):Hello from Twitter,This is an automated confirmation that we received your ticket. If you’re contesting a suspension, be sure to read this entire email; you will need to take further action in order to reopen your ticket.

 

Please be sure your account is actually suspended. You should visit your own profile page to make sure you’re suspended and not viewing another person’s suspended profile page–many people think they are suspended when they aren’t. You’ll also know you’re suspended if you log in and see a red notice announcing your suspension on your account.

Twitter primarily suspends accounts for Terms of Service violations or spam investigation. If you are suspended, it’s most likely for one or more of these reasons:

· aggressive following or follower churn (repeatedly following and unfollowing users)
· trend spamming (posting unrelated updates to trending topics to gain attention)
· misuse of the reply feature
· updates consist of links pointing to phishing sites, malware, or other harmful material
· updates consist of duplicate links and/or text
· updates consist mainly of links duplicated across multiple accounts, and not personal updates
· account identified as potentially being part of a spam cluster
· a large number of people block the profile or write in with spam complaints

Please review the Twitter Rules for a more comprehensive list:

If you feel you’ve been suspended in error, please reply to this email with a short explanation and be sure to include your username. Responding to this email will reopen this ticket and put your ticket in queue for support, but you need to reply from the address this mail was sent to. If you use an alias (such as username+alias@gmail.com), ensure that your reply comes from the alias address or your ticket may not be seen by our support staff. We will do our best to get back to you within 30 days.

If this did not answer your inquiry, responding to this email will reopen this ticket.

Thanks,

Twitter Support
