Why is Twitter suspending accounts who fight against ISIS ?

Last update : 2017.03.02 16:00 UTC

@Ctrlsec  @Ctrlsec

Over the past months, a huge number of hunters, analysts, parodics have seen their account suspended by @twitter
most of the time without any explanation or because of trivial and arbitrary motives such as "overlapping accounts"

We are currently documentating this unacceptable behaviour because it affects the efficiency of the operations to remove ISIS propaganda contents online.

If you have been victim and you're not yet listed, please kindly contact @An0nShield

So far, we have identified 337 accounts

✏️ March 2017      = 1 abusive suspension

✏️ February 2017 = 26 abusive suspensions

✏️ January 2017  = 39 abusive suspensions


This list is far from being exhaustive. We are still working on it.

Among these abusive suspensions, 55 % have never been fixed by @support.

UPDATE : We welcome the recent change at Twitter who is making some noticeable efforts to improve the situation regarding these abusive suspensions. But some accounts are still going down without any valid reason
