  • Twitter Prison is a term popular on social media for Twitter accounts that have been permanently banned or banned for violating the platform’s rules and regulations.
  • The platform has already banned 54,000 accounts in India between August 26 and September 25 this year for policy violations.
  • A suspended account can only be restored if the user submits a form emphasizing that the reason for the ban was not justified.

Ever since Elon Musk acquired the microblogging platform Twitter in October, it has made multiple changes and updates, including a paid blue tick feature, which is currently on hold. That is now apparent Musk may introduce another change – Twitter users whose accounts have been suspended i.e. who have ended up in ‘Twitter Jail’ will be given the reasons for the suspension.

Twitter Jail is a term popular in social media for users whose accounts have been permanently banned or temporarily locked for violating the platform’s rules and regulations. The platform has already banned more than 54,000 accounts in India between August 26 and September 25 this year due to policies
violations.

Musk recently responded to a tweet from one Tesla engineer on Twitter, agreeing to the suggestion to share reasons for account suspension or ban.

“Twit Suggestion 2: Twitter Prison! Share both the reason for the ban, the number of violations and when the account will be released,” the Tesla engineer Emmett
tweeted. To which Elon Musk replied: “Agree”.

What will land you in Twitter jail?

The microblogging platform has established a number of rules to regulate users on the platform. For starters, users can only post
2,400 tweetssend 1,000
Twitter DMs and follow 400 handles a day.

The platform may also temporarily lock an account if the user aggressively follows and unfollows other accounts, tweets offensive content, spreads misinformation, or posts graphic content that could be considered as
trigger ie sexual assault, gore, hateful imagery just to name a few.

If a user continues to violate their set framework despite warnings and temporary bans, Twitter may permanently suspend the account. Consequently, all engagements such as retweets, likes and Twitter replies are disabled. In addition, the user is not allowed to create new accounts with the same email ID.

Another way Twitter imprisons its users is by limiting a user’s profile range. Even though a user’s profile is active, the engagement and reach of their tweets are limited.

Former US President Donald Trump’s account has even been suspended
January 2021 after he tweeted “misleading” or false information about the riots on Washington’s Capitol Hill. However, Trump’s Twitter account was reinstated three days ago, following a poll Musk conducted on Twitter. Rapper’s accounts Kanye WestRepublican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, right-wing satirical site Babylon Bee, comedian Kathy Griffin and clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson have also been reinstated since Musk took over.

Some of the other banned accounts are those of actor Kangana RanautIndian Playback Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Media Manager Steve Bannonformer hedge fund manager Martin Shkreli, retired U.S. Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn and
Lake.

How to recover your account if it has been suspended


Twitter usually temporarily locks your account when it witnesses “spammy or abusive behavior”. However, your account may also be suspended if an updated email address or phone number is not provided, despite repeated reminders from the platform. If a user believes that their account has been suspended without a valid reason, they can appeal at
Twitter.

Twitter will also lock your account if it notices that the email address associated with the account has changed more than four times in a short period of time. Suspended account users can submit their questions in a
form.

Automated following and unfollowing is not allowed on the platform. Unsolicited replies are also considered spamming. The same goes for the frequent use of offensive hashtags that have been flagged as inappropriate/sensitive by the platform. Users advertising on Twitter must include the hashtag “#ad” in their promotional tweets. It is essential to mark your content as sensitive (in the case of hateful or explicit images, triggering information, etc.) to avoid being banned by Twitter.
