So I'm not in Twitter jail this time.
This time I'm kicked out completely and forever. Just like Donald Trump!
So did I incite a bloody insurrection against the United States government?
Did I threaten anyone or wish them physical harm in any way?
I have been evicted from Twitter and told never to return for responding to this, which was directed at me...
A little spicy, sure, but nothing compared to what you can see flying back and forth on Twitter all day, every day, with no scoldings or groundings or exiles from @Jack.
Hey, maybe I should have responded like so!
Did you work hard to be this much of a moron, or are you the product of a combination of enthusiastic inbreeding and a mother who spent her pregnancy huffing paint thinner while servicing her other clients in a truckstop bathroom? https://t.co/sVUubocn9m— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) January 8, 2020
Because this is obviously not a permanent account suspension offence. Hell, it's not even worth a 12-hour-bit-in-Twitter-minimum-security-jail.
And just for kicks, some of you may remember that I did a week in Twitter jail a few years ago for using a famous quote from Pulp Fiction -- "Send in the Gimp" -- to describe Senator Lindsey Graham's relationship with Donald Trump. If you'd like to see an excellent example of what "selective enforcement" means, click on this Twitter search link to get a feel for how many other people have done/are doing exactly the same thing and are not being chucked into Twitmo.
And those of you with long memories ma recall that I did my first week in the digital gray-bar hotel for calling to a specific celebrity, Bill Maher, as a "whore". But boy was it worth it! Because thanks to Twitter making an example of me, Bill Maher is now very nearly 100% safe from anyone referring to him or to anyone else by that word on that website.
Ah well, too late for regrets now.
I filed an appeal, which I expect to fail, so so-long on Twitter, kids, and thanks for all the follows and follies over the years.
