Twitter Suspends, Unsuspends, Suspends, Unsuspends CascadedBug Account That Mocked Its Downtime

from the where's-the-humor? dept

Twitter is usually pretty good about protecting people’s right to do parodies, but apparently someone there got a little sensitive about a parody account called CascadedBug, after the supposed cascade bug that caused quite a bit of downtime. Apparently Twitter suspended the account. Then unsuspended it. Then suspended it again. Then unsuspended it again. No matter what, it seems ridiculous that the account was ever suspended. Twitter, whose execs normally have a decent sense of humor, would have won a lot more points with the public by just tweeting at the account, rather than suspending it…

This sounds more like a software engineer who took the insults personally and decided to toy with the minds of those who’d dare to poke fun than the move of an executive.

“Oops, looks like I accidentally hit ‘deactivate account’, I’ll just go get another mug of coffee before I fix that… There, all better; ah, darn, looks like I did it again. That undo button looks nigh impossible to click again with out a sandwich…”
