The issue in GetHuman-mrmeadow's own words
I made a joke on Twitter riffing on someone else's reference to the ****'s comedy movie Midnight Run with another line from the movie that in context is meant to be funny but out-of-context could be considered violent. It was meant as a movie reference, not an ACTUAL threat (and the person I was replying to "got it" and even liked the tweet), but I've been suspended for over a week now and can't get them to restore me after multiple appeals. In retrospect, it probably was dumb of me to post the line since on it's own it IS quoting someone making a threat, even though in context I was clearly NOT making a threat. So I get suspending me pending my explanation, but since my explanations aren't working I have to assume a computer algorithm is what is actually "reading" my appeals and therefore rejecting them. It seems unfair for me to be kicked off Twitter (seemingly permanently) for an out-of-context tweet. I've been on Twitter since **** and have over **K tweets and have never been reported for threats or violence before. Shouldn't you at least be given a warning or the opportunity to delete your perhaps ill-advised tweet (which I'd be happy to do) before being kicked off the site forever?? It's a very knee-jerk response.
