A woman says her Twitter account was suspended after she criticized Taylor Swift on the social media platform, and she's blaming the Swifties.
When Swift dropped revenge track "Look What You Made Me Do," the woman -- whose since-deactivated handle, @themoodforluv, is now @jeonjamal -- posted on Aug. 25, "no offence but taylor swift ever gonna grow out of her 'i wrote your name in my burn book' phrase she's a grown ass woman."
The woman, who's chosen to remain anonymous, followed the post with: "she got called out on her shit w receipts & valid criticism and her response is 'you're a BULLY!1!! uwu i'm telling the principal," and another one that read, "her stans need to pipe the fuck down too because she didn't drag anyone or anything she was at fault all along but she keeps playing victim."
i think the funniest part about this whole thing is that this demonic tweet is still somehow getting likes on my suspended acc pic.twitter.com/R2p646MwGp— check pinned (@jeonjamal) August 31, 2017
Following the user's suspension on Aug. 28, three days after the tweets were posted, the tweets were rendered invisible yet were somehow still getting liked and retweeted.
"I still get mentions on that account whenever someone mentions @themoodforluv," the user told Insider. "Somehow, that one tweet was still getting likes even days after I got suspended. I have no idea why."
According to Twitter's policy, when an account is suspended for harassment, the posts in question are supposed to be deleted. Since the users tweets are still receiving activity, that means either there was a glitch in the system or she may have been banned for different reasons.
The user seems to think it was Taylor's loyal Swifties who reported her account to Twitter.
"I had Taylor fans in my mentions for days, and I'm assuming they're the ones who reported me because that's the only tweet of mine that got 'negative' backlash even though most people agreed with me," she told BuzzFeed News.
To no avail, the user said she's tried to appeal her suspension, which may actually be Twitter's attempt at curbing online harassment. If it is, this will be Swift's second time in the center of an online bullying ordeal. It was last year's feud between the singer and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West that prompted Instagram to allow users to control -- to a certain degree -- the comments on their photos.
One thing's for sure: Twitter notified the user her @themoodforluv account would not be restored. Oddly enough, some loyal Taylor fans have tweeted at her offering advice and sympathy. Others pointed out that Twitter users posting pro-neo-Nazi and white supremacist propaganda have yet to be banned from the site.
