In April, 2015, Brett Kimberlin filed a malicious series of false complaints with Twitter concerning my (at)wjjhoge account. Twitter responded by suspending that account.

I received this email from Twitter today.The Gentle Reader may remember how The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin and his buddies made much of the suspension of that account.

I’m sure this will come as a disappointment to TDPK and his fans. I can offer this deal from Amazon to help soothe their pain.

I can’t be sure why Twitter decided to reinstate my account, but it’s been suggested to me that their legal department was concerned about being drawn in to any civil matter on the same side as Brett Kimberlin.
I do know that Twitter’s shameful behavior during those months convinced me that they were not a reliable platform. As a result, I became one of the early adopters of Gab and one of Gab’s first investors.
