So Twitter suspended my account without providing any reasoning. It is probably related to using Tor Browser but that used to work for years without major issues.

I asked them to unlock the account, lets see how this goes.

twitter.com/nusenu

Their reply to my appeal:

"Hello,
We’re writing to let you know that your account has been suspended due to multiple or repeat violations of our rules.
Please do not reply to this email, or send us new appeals for this account as we won’t monitor them.
Thanks,
Twitter"

@nusenu if you're in the EU you could try to get the "reason" via a GDPR request. Would be interesting to know if tor is a factor.

@nusenu when I signed up for twitter back then I did not provide a phone number. Following many people and not being followed back seems to trigger their bot heuristic.

Took me a couple of emails to their support to be unblocked.

I guess the humans there have only 3 seconds to handle such issues and can click a button to send a prepared text instead of understanding a problem.

This really sucks.

And it is one of many reasons to prefer federated solutions like mastodon instead.
