The Shadowbanning of Patchy Has Gotten Ridiculous

Patchy is shadowbanned from Twitter again.

For those who don’t know what shadowbanning is, it’s when Twitter doesn’t want you using Twitter anymore even though you haven’t done anything wrong. Well, maybe you did something wrong but you didn’t violate their rules bad enough for them to ban you from using Twitter altogether. They say abusing hashtags is something that will result in a shadowban, except they don’t call it a shadowban. They just say they remove your tweets from everyone’s search results and notifications. THAT’S WHAT A SHADOWBAN IS!!!!! They make you invisible. The only time people see your tweets is if you happen to show up on their timeline.

For the past two weeks, Patchy has gotten shadowbanned while live tweeting Gotham on Thursday nights. Patchy doesn’t tweet mean things or fight with people or call real people names. Patchy does call TV characters names, though. Anyway… most of the times Patchy has been shadowbanned for 24 hours. Welp… this time, it’s been over 36 hours and Patchy is still shadowbanned.

One of Patchy’s friends searched for Patchy and Twitter told him there were no search results, but his settings may be preventing him from seeing potentially sensitive content. PATCHY TWEETS ARE NOT SENSITIVE CONTENT!!!!!!

Patchy has repeatedly asked Twitter to tell him why he keeps being shadowbanned. The only response Patchy gets is from an automated bot, telling Patchy to use Twitter’s help page to file a report.

Look, Patchy uses Twitter to live tweet TV shows with other fans of the show. THAT’S IT. Patchy isn’t a political troll. Patchy doesn’t call people names. Patchy doesn’t try to sell anybody anything. Patchy is just Patchy. Patchy exists to have fun on Twitter.

Here’s the deal. Patchy’s twitter account was first created because Patchy couldn’t leave the house. Patchy was sick. Patchy created a Twitter account to live tweet The Walking Dead. Patchy also created Patchette’s twitter account so Patchette could live tweet too. Patchy and Patchette had fun live tweeting all our favorite TV shows for a year and a half, until September of 2017, when Twitter shadowbanned Patchy right in the middle of one of the last episodes of Halt and Catch Fire.

Patchy’s friends tweeted support of Patchy and tagged Twitter in tweets asking them to restore Patchy’s account.

Patchy is not a bot. Patchy is not a troll. Patchy is not a predator. Patchy is not making money on Twitter. Patchy and Patchette live tweet to have fun. THAT IS ALL. And it’s not fun anymore.

Twitter’s management is the biggest bunch of cowards Patchy has ever seen. To spend nine months begging for a response and get no response is pathetic. Patchy doesn’t care if Twitter goes bankrupt. Patchy isn’t having fun anymore. Patchy is just sad.

Patchy and Patchette have met so many people we care about because of live tweeting TV shows. But Twitter doesn’t want Patchy anymore. Twitter has broken Patchy’s heart.
