Twitter accidentally suspends Jack Dorsey’s account

By : |November 23, 2016 0

Charity begins at home. It cannot be more true for Twitter and its experiments/initiatives. Recently, Twitter updated its abuse policy wherein any user found being abusive gets blocked or suspended by the site. Within a few days, surprisingly, Twitter suspended its own boss.

So was Jack being abusive or was involved in some kind of hate speech? Actually, he wasn’t. As a matter of fact, this is not the first incident of Dorsey’s account getting disfavours. Earlier this year, Twitter took initiatives against Cybercrime. After few days, Dorsey’s account was hacked. Coincidence? Maybe.

Thankfully, Dorsey’s account was suspended only for 15 minutes. After getting back, Dorsey tweeted that his “account was suspended due to an internal error.”

  However, Twitterattis didn’t let go of this opportunity to have fun.

  Dorsey’s account disappearance also resulted in him losing many followers. Suspicious. Hmmm.


Considering the after-effects, there are high chances that Dorsey’s account was under the ‘hacking’ radar. The Verge report speculating the entire scenario, says “it could be that Dorsey was the target of a hacking attempt, and his account was taken down to pre-emptively halt any kind of public performance, while Twitter worked to get it back into his hands.”

Though the account wasn’t hacked, but any intrusion would have cost hefty to the already-at-loss-company.
