Reality Check India

Twitter account update

Posted in Uncategorized by realitycheck on July 7, 2021

Guys/Girls. Looks like my twitter account is temporarily locked.

They are demanding my phone number verification to unlock it.

I am not about to do that.

I do not know what might have triggered this , only thing I can think of is I recently used a VPN connection to login. It might also be a case of mass reporting as it has been in the past. In the past, I just had to pass a CAPTCHA to regain access but this time they are asking a phone number verification. Why cant they do an email verification? I have never given them my phone number. I smell something fishy and fitting a certain pattern.

I have reason to believe that at this time given the nature of my content in particular the Dravidian related tweets and the power balance it is prudent to be play safe on the side of security. The messenger is needed for the message. I am led to believe that while Twitter employees have access to the phone number via an internal dashboard but to get the actual logs the employees need to reveal themselves to the company.

I am going to pass for now so the account may remain restricted. I have also opened an account at Koo.

Good news is I have more time to go deeper on this blog. There are a couple of topics I have been putting off for a while now.

    This is how giants like Twitter bite the dust eventually — one RCI at a time.

    I saw this post on quora , written by a dravidianist on why he hates Tamil Brahmins, and I believe it is worth posting here ; It clarifies why they hate us ;

    https://www.quora.com/Why-do-so-many-Tamilians-dislike-Sundar-Pichai-and-Ramanujam

    *I am Tamilian and I dislike them too. It is not to say that all Tamilians dislike them, some are proud of these people too. However, before I answer the question, I would like to let you know that please appreciate my honesty in answering this question. Other people will not dare say the truth. So, why we dislike them?

    *Envy – We feel envious that almost all great men from Tamil Nadu were Tamil Brahmins – Ramanujam, C V Raman, Subrahmaniam Chandrashekhar, Manoj Night Shyamlan, Sundar Pichai, and many more in films, art, and politics. Also, many Tamil Brahmins manage to crack IIT and medical schools easily, and they occupy many R & D positions. This makes us feel inferior, and invokes jealousy in some of us. I wish there were more of other Tamilains making it to the very top. We are constantly reminded of their success and superiority, and how am I suppose to feel motivated about my shot at success when very few from my caste have made it big. This invoked serious envy and dislike for those sucessful brahmins.

    *Looks – Tamil brahmins, on an average look better than us Tamilians. This makes us feel that, even if they are nobel prize winners, that are NOT one of US. Their looking different and better makes many of us Tamilians very upset.

    *Anti-Brahmin propaganda- Even though when you personally meet them, many brahmins tend to be very nice and compassionate people, however, please understand that when you are born in upper caste, you are taught to be nice by your parents. Hence, them being nice and compassionate is LEARNED from parents and not inherent in genes. So, many of us feel justified when anti-brahmin propaganda is promoted by Tamil politicians, even when they may be nice at personal level.

    *I know many people will dislike the truth that I said here. But, I had the courage to say the truth and accept my true feelings, knowing well that they may not be right. But, you know, I am a human being, and feel full range of human emotions. And these answers reflect feelings of many Tamilians (NOT ALL) whether they like it or not.

    *This answer received 105 upvotes

    *Explains why we are dealing with deep reptilian hate

    Notic
    I am going to be on Koo for a while. Those who wish to interact or flag content to me can reach me on Koo. Lets see how that goes.

    Dont worry eventually I will be back on twitter , I am not a turf ceding type 🙂 For now I am doing some deep reading and also keeping my tweeting habit alive on Koo.

    My account Vignesh95745892 has been suspended too. And Twttr has upped their game. They have suspended all my accounts. Naa arva kolar la number kuduthu unlock panna vera try pannitten :(.

    In 2020, Twitter got about 4500 requests from govt about account info. Twitter apparently acted only on 30% of those requests. https://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news/india-sent-most-number-of-requests-seeking-account-info-twitter-report-101626287283039.html

    So, hopefully…fairly safe for now. Chances of being one in those 1350???…Let’s hope the seeds u planted will grow in the meantime.

    Vignesh.

    My twitter account got suspended. Sad. That account was a mine of info. For ex, I had predicted that once #drav falls, the elites will take up tamil thesiyam in their hands and that tamil thesiyam was originally of the vellalas. Wanted to see if my prediction would come true but it’s gone :(. Have mailed twitter. Let’s see.

    RCI, how did you get around this?
    I was able to login to twitter till y’day. Today account is restricted and am being asked for phone number.
    I only use it as a newsfeed and DM some folks. இதுல என்னத்த unusual activityஐ கண்டுச்சோ algorithm தெரியலையே.

    • Vignesh said, on September 9, 2021 at 5:18 pm

      Go to a bus stop/rly station/market, ask some random guy/old man/drunkard/other state laborer. Tats how I got around.

        Too angry, you are swinging all over the place. Been there, I know it how it is. How old are you ? I am likely older. I have a suggestion that worked —> lift weights. Move iron. I am dead serious , this works.

    • realitycheck said, on September 10, 2021 at 3:57 am

      @dagalti

      Do not give your phone number.

      Here is what I did

      1. appeal using https://help.twitter.com/forms/general

      2. you will get an email

      3. reply to that email ; ask why your account was locked,

      This is very sinister, why would you account which isnt even that active be
      probed in this manner.

      Remember how the Saudi prince Salman infiltrated Twitter and that led to doxing and Killing of Kashoggi and jailing of several others. I think there are agents , contractors who cannot access the logs of users , but are able to see the phone number in profile. If they are able to lock and make reveal the phone number via a KYC step. they will do it. Cognizant is a contractor to Twitter. Plenty of scope for infil.

      If the above steps dont work, just abandon and create a new a/c. You arent very active anyway.

      • dagalti (@dagalti) said, on September 10, 2021 at 5:46 am

        Thank You.

        It worked.

        I just wrote in the email: I don’t want to give you my phone number and they unlocked it saying

        “…it looks like yours was flagged as spam by mistake”

        Sinister அளவுக்கெல்லாம் நான் worth இல்லீங்க ஐயா 🙂

        I didn’t even use VPN like you say you did. I just DM’ed 2-3 people in a day without having tweeted for ages. That’s the only ‘odd’ activity I think of I guess.

    @dagalti

    Glad to see you back. !!

    I have recently seen chatter in #D spotter and tracker accounts with your name. You have the tamizh game. That is a danger they track.

    • dagalti (@dagalti) said, on September 10, 2021 at 8:10 am

      Sir, some of these people know me quasi IRL. Folks I used to interact with extensively.
      Of late, even the erstwhile decent chaps have become uninhibited in their expression of latent bigotry. This disappointed me no end as it shows the bigotry was barely latent all along. Which is also kinda why I’m unenthused to reparticipate in the realtime SocMed timesink.

      You are overrating many of these folks as some kind of org. backed ‘trackers’ and all.
      Most are simply deludedly thinking of themselves as righteous SJWs and hyper-alert in seeing ‘பார்ப்பன சதி’ everywhere.

      Their image of themselves is quite funny. But, since I have been interacting with some of them for eons across fora, I find your overrating of some of them to be funny too!

      IMO NRS’s sizing up of these chaps as fairly on-point.

    Plum seems to have had a serious mental breakdown at some point. Hope he’s getting the help he needs.
