Banned From Twitter… Again
Part of the reason for the reboot of the GayPatriot blog is my Twitter addiction. I joined Twitter in 2007, and fell in love with the brevity and the instant feedback from followers. That addiction resulted in my brain ‘thinking’ in 180, then 240 characters. My desire to ‘long form’ blog died off as writing tweets became my creative attention span. However, as most of you know, the free-flowing and fun days of Twitter are long behind us. From 2007 to 2018, I tweeted from the infamous Twitter handle – @GayPatriot. I had built up quite a following too; over 75,000 followers. But left-wing loons went after me in 2018 and that handle was permanently banned (including my IP address and cellphone number!). So, as the story goes, I’ve had at least 10 different handles from 2018 through yesterday. But it appears the anti-conservative cancel squad found me while I was tweeting about the Super Bowl last night. Once again, I’ve been banned by Big Tech. Such is life in 2021. I have rebooted this site in part to make sure my voice is heard and people can find me and join in a conversation with me. Thanks for being a part of our GayPatriot community, everyone!
Again Bruce. Lol I will continue the shitposting until you return
I have followed you since joining Twitter, you always make me laugh and sometimes cringe. I’m Catielord/tudsgrl.
Glad you set up shop here.

I never removed your site from my Feedly no matter how much it prompted me to do so for lack of content. I kept hoping and my wishes have finally come true.

Glen Reynolds said that blogging should never have died. You own your own blog, not some big silicone valley tech company. I think it is fine if you put up a lot short tweets here, we’ll read them.

Dude you have to be careful the twitter gestopo don’t like free talkers
At least I was rated “hot” before they got you. I’ll check in here while I await your return.
#1 get a VPN to mask your ip.
#2 post here when you return to Twitter.
Now I’m trying to remember if I voted for you or Jay to get the boot first. Well. congrats on your win!
I was bored with the twits and was only maintaining it to keep in touch with a longtime online friend who was also doing better and better in her life so I was less worried about being a supportive presence for her. So it was just a touch base every so often.
Then some time after the BLM riots, suddenly I stopped getting notifications of her tweets. So one day, to make sure it was either her just getting bored, or nothing too bad, I checked her boyfriend/hubby’s page and found that she was still fine, but when I tried to log in I got a message from the PTB that because of a tweet 9 years old, my account was locked. OWS looters in London and I had “shoot looters” in a tweet.
Delete and abase and all would be fine.
I just never bothered, until late last summer when the ban hammers came for so many of those I used to enjoy, I deleted the tweet and then deleted my account..
Glad to see you back.

Something tells me you’ll be back. Good to know we can find you here!

You had a good run — again. See you next time.
May you have more twitter lives than a clowder of cats…
