Man banned from Twitter over mosquito death threat

Threatening mosquitoes on Twitter could get you banned from the platform


A Twitter user in Japan has been banned from using the social networking site for making a death threat against a mosquito.

Tweeting abuse would sometimes get you banned from the platform but Twitter's decision to ban user @nemuismywife has attracted ridicule on social media.

It started on 20 August when he was repeatedly bitten by a mosquito as he was watching TV.

After killing the mosquito, he tweeted: "Where do you get off biting me all over while I'm just trying to relax and watch TV? Die! (Actually you're already dead)." He added a picture of a dead insect to his tweet.



Some time later he received a message from Twitter saying his account had been frozen and cannot be reactivated.

He set up a new Twitter account, @DaydreamMatcha, to criticise Twitter's decision.

He tweeted: "My previous account was permanently frozen after I said I killed a mosquito. Is this a violation?"

His angry tweet was retweeted more than 31,000 times and liked more than 27,000 Twitter users:

Twitter has rolled out a number of new measures and tools to curb online abuse and harassment on its platform.

Some reports claimed the tweet was flagged by an automated programme and not by a human moderator.

US business magazine Fortune reported that Twitter launched an algorithm to detect abusive behaviour by looking and picking up key offensive words.

That is what humanity will end up being due to political correctness.

When pets are loved more than people, what do you expect.

Keep on designating jobs that require rational judgment to AI and you get things like this.

na wa ooo twitter is only fighting for their colleague , you know that bird and mosquito both fly so they don't want a situation where by you see something flying instead of checking , you just kill it thinking it is mosquito.
if you want to make lalasticlala vex too just talk or do something against snake, your ban go lonnnnnngggg ehen.

Considering doing a roof parapet?
check out price comparison between a concrete cast in suite against polystyrene parapet.
Polystyrene parapet is light weight and doesn't have much impact on the land.
excellent usage on swampy environment.

This is what nairaland should do. You should device a way of identifying tribal insults and hate and then ban the offender. It can be automated.
