Masters of the Universe, Twitter, have refused to suspend a Twitter Account impersonating Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi, despite multiple reports to the hypocritical big tech company.
Twitter has focussed more on eliminating people giving their opinion but refused to act on impersonation, which is more serious than them interpreting a revealing photo as nude and suspending accounts.
This shows the inconsistency of Twitter policies. One hand purports to stand for free speech while the other stifles it.
One would imagine Twitter would suspend these impersonating accounts with the speed they suspend any account the agencies and government officials Twitter executives work with alert them to suspend account but NEVER!
Isn’t it interesting that Twitter managed to track down even Onward Africa Company account, and suspended it for being ” Linked To A suspended Person” But cannot track down accounts impersonating Nyakundi?
According to Twitter’s impersonation policy …
Impersonation is a violation of the Twitter Rules. Twitter accounts portraying another person in a confusing or deceptive manner may be permanently suspended under the Twitter impersonation policy.
An account will not be removed if:
The user shares your name but has no other commonalities, or
The profile clearly states it is not affiliated with or connected to any similarly-named individuals.
Accounts with similar usernames or that are similar in appearance (e.g. the same avatar image) are not automatically in violation of the impersonation policy. In order to be impersonation, the account must also portray another person in a misleading or deceptive manner.
The Twitter account https://twitter.com/_C_NyaKundiH has managed to amass more than 6,500 followers in a few days, by pretending to be Nyakundi as Kenyans follow it hoping that it is the real Nyakundi.
This is where CENSORSHIP comes in by proving that many Kenyans depended on Nyakundi for important updates. By suspending Nyakundi, Twitter has also censored many people.
On 30th July, the same day the Twitter executives touched down in Kenya, Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi’s Twitter account was suspended in a strange case of multiple malicious reporting.
The Twitter executives met government officials and attended a Safaricom Blaze event, though it is not clear if they did that as individuals or they were representing masters of the universe, Twitter. The event was organized by Scangroup, a company whose employees have been lobbying for the banning of Nyakundi from Twitter.
The best way to stop impersonation is by letting the real person Tweet?
