What happened? According to the company it was an honest mistake.
“Twitter has automated systems that find and remove multiple automated spam accounts in bulk,” an email from the company states. “Unfortunately, it looks like your account got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake.”
Twitter apologized “for the inconvenience.”
While our account has been restored, our 10,500-plus followers have not been.
“It may take an hour or so for your follower and following numbers to return to normal,” the company stated.
Anyway, we appreciate Twitter responding to this situation and restoring our account. We trust our followers will be restored eventually.
Also, we’d like to thank our associate opinion editor Amy Lazenby, notorious Twitterer Todd Kincannon and S.C. Senator Tom Davis (R-Beaufort) for their efforts on our behalf during this saga.
