Twitter has banned its largest meme account, which had 2.5 million followers, after what its owner described as a “false reporting” campaign.
“It’s just a meme account I uploaded 2-4 funny videos everyday that my followers sent me,” the owner of @FreeMemesKids said. “I started it in March 2016 grew to 10k by June 2016 and then it took off when people like Post Malone retweeted me.”
The account hit one million followers about a year ago, and skyrocketed from there. Each Tweet was receiving 100-200 thousand likes.
“In the last few months it was growing 200k followers a month,” the account owner told me.
Then, the account was banned for “evading permanent suspension.”
This reporter had his Twitter account suspended for the same reason. When my account was restored, the owner of the meme account reached out to tell his story.
“Twitter has automated systems that find and remove multiple automated spam accounts in bulk. Unfortunately, it looks like your account got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake,” Twitter told me in an email alerting me that my account would be restored.
The @FreeMemesKids owner believes he was caught in the middle of the same mistake.
“There is only one other account my size on twitter that posts funny type stuff,” the account’s owner told me.

Free Speech Platform Gab Receives 3 Million New Users in 12 Days
Fleeing the tyranny of Big Tech.
Free speech social media platform Gab has signed up more than 3 million new users for the service in less than 12 days.
3 million new users in 12 days.
Slowly, surely, then suddenly all at once.
The Exodus has only just begun.
There are no brakes on this train.

The rush of new users to Gab may represent a unprecedented development in the history of the internet. It’s likely that no social media service has ever signed up as many users in such a short period of time before.
Gab has received an even more historic month in terms of web traffic, attracting 24 million unique users.

All of Gab’s server infrastructure is owned by the company itself, a guarantor of resiliency in the face of Big Tech censorship and deplatforming. The service has suffered from growing pains over the past month as tyrants of Silicon Valley enact censorship and political purges in a manner never before seen, but Gab has onboarded more than ten new servers in its data centers in response to the user influx.
Gab’s total user base possibly numbers in the tens of millions by now, although it remains to be seen if the new signups will continue to use Gab in the months and years to come.
The hitpiece libel group Anti-Defamation League is demanding that Democrat legislators find a way to criminalize Gab, terrified that its base will have a means to engage in political speech without fear of censorship and persecution.
Administrators of Parler, a competing free speech social media platform, expect to return their service to the internet by the end of the month. Parler was deplatformed by Amazon Web Services after the raucous January 6th protest at the US Capitol, revealing a critical point of weakness in their service.
