I was “permanently” banned from Twitter as a result of false complaints of “targeted” harassment filed against me by Brett Kimberlin simultaneously with the perjured peace order petition he filed against me in 2015 alleging online harassment of Tetyana Kimberlin’s elder daughter. I wound up losing both my (a)wjjhoge business account and my (a)hogewash personal account at Twitter. (Yeah, I know it seems like that’s backwards, but it’ a long story for another post.)
When the peace order petition failed in District Court and Kimberlin’s appeal failed in Circuit Court, Kimberlin had his wife file a false criminal charge of cyberharassing her daughter. The State’s Attorney’s Office refused to prosecute because there was no evidence to support the charge.
Shortly after the criminal charge was dropped, Twitter contacted me saying I could have one of my accounts back. One, not both. They would not say why I could have an account back, but I was one of the first conservatives purged. They made remarks to third parties stating exactly why my accounts had been suspended—reasons that later turned out to be false. The Gentle Reader should notice that not long after my suspension, Twitter began giving a list of nebulous reasons or failing give any reason at all when suspending an account. I believe they let me back on, hoping that I would not sue for defamation.
I chose to have my business account restored, and when it became active again, the image on the left became my avatar. Yes, that’s the headshot that I use here at Hogewash! with duct tape added across my mouth.
I’m inclined to leave the duct tape in place until I get my personal account back.
