One annoying phrase I'm seeing a lot:

A year ago I quit ( my job / smoking / drinking / eating / some other boring shit )

I found myself suddenly suspended on twitter. It said I used hate speech.... this was the offending tweet which I had produced in response to some question about which Tory ministers had got away with crimes or whatever with virtually no punishment

And of course Jeremy Hunt Culture Secretary (careful there) who seemed to suffer no real consequences when he was caught texting Murdoch Jr on how best to slime his way round the anti-monopoly laws he was supposed to be enforcing. What a cunt!

Was kinda weird cos that was a very tame tweet as far as I can see. Also, it said "do not try to evade this by creating other accounts etc or we will make it a permanent ban" but the small print said the ban was indefinite anyway which is pretty much the same in my book. Anyway, I waited a few days to see if anything would happen and then I messaged them an appeal saying that the tweet for which i was banned was a mixture of the undeniably true and the clearly tongue in cheek, they replied saying they would take a few days to check it and then....

A strange and rather pointless episode as far as I can see. Not sure what triggered it.
