Twitter Suspends Popular User Wanjiku Revolt Through Multiple Malicious DMCA Reports

Below is a narration by Twitter User Wanjiku Revolt on how Twitter and malicious actors united to bring down his account

Fuhrer Jack Dorsey

My account has been suspended due to multiple, systematic & malicious DMCA takedown notices by surrogate individuals using surrogate Gmail accounts most probably by the same individual. I have provided a phone number, email address and changed password multiple times yet am unable to unsuspend my account.

 

These two individuals Dennis Mwita & Donald Mbuta who claim to be photographers or videographers and who filed the DCMA takedown notices against my tweets do not actually exist. There is no record of them in Kenya in the addresses they cite/provide or any digital footprint online which is strange for a photographer/videographer. The material they claim to be theirs is available online rights free and has been shared multiple times on multiple social media platforms without any attribution to the said individuals. Notice too that the individuals have not provided ANY links to what they claim to be their original works.

 

That said, I do not really care much about the takedowns but rather would like to get my account unsuspended.

 

My platform advocates for human rights, good governance and social justice. My tweets thus are usually critical of the corrupt Kenyan government or it’s officials while amplifying those officials doing a good job. I suspect state operatives did the malicious DMCA notices to interfere with my right to free speech provided graciously through the Twitter platform. The huge organic following my account has seems to be a threat to someone in the Kenyan government.

 

I hope my account will be restored as soon as possible. It’s been a week of suspension now.

 

Below are the 4 cases in question.
