Farewell Twitter and btw, fu*k off

The evening before the HCL Factory tour started I went out for dinner with some friends coming from abroad for the event. We went in a pizzeria and there I showed my friend Andreas Weinbrecht a thing on the menu

It says : Pineapple, is absolutely forbidden to consider it an ingredient for pizza.

After a few days Andrea tweeted that after three days of eating Italian he wanted an Hawaiian pizza and i replied “if you do that I will kill you”

After two days I received a mail from Twitter saying that my account was suspended because in one of my post I incited to violence.
Now….

I understand that the minions that are doing the censors on Twitter ( btw same applies to Facebook ) have an IQ between a demented monkey and a fruit fly but, my God, try at least to understand humor. Do you think is really possible that I menace to kill a person in public ? Do you see I am Italian ( you do know ) and understand that Hawaiian pizza is considered a joke here ? Try to understand the context before banning someone because it used the word “kill”.

Social media is, to quote Lady Gaga, “the toilet of the internet”, people use them to to post racial slurs, offend other people, disturb elections, incite to violence for real ( ISIS and Islamic terrorist post regularly ), and all you minions can do is extrapolate a single word from a post and suspend me ?

I am sorry for those who followed me, maybe they found my ramblings funny or interesting, and too bad for me that I will not be able to follow anymore my friends and miss some interesting news, but if these are the rules of the game, I will not play.

Farewell Twitter, is been good while it lasted but now you can fuck off.

Truly yours

  1. Oh WOW! So they can’t find “Fake News” that results in tragedies like #45 or Brexit, but they can identify harmless humour as “violence”. This is getting ridiculous! 🙁

    That’s so stupid. I laughed out loud when I read that comment.

  3. Even if you consider to kill me… 🙂 I admit I do like Pizza Hawaii. The worst pizza crime in Germany isn’t the pineapple on a hawaiian pizza. I have seen far worse ingredients, e.g. cooked spaghetti on a pizza, Sauce Hollandaise, sweet BBQ sauce or sweet corn. Dear folks: Corn is not intented to be eaten by humans! It’s animal food. This is also true for polenta, sorry!! Corn makes your liver fat because it digests to unhealthy fructose sugars.
    However: The real common pizza crime in Germany is a different thing: Almost all pizza makers use Gouda cheese, or – even worse – Analog cheese, an artificial cheese made from vegetable oil (this crime is mostly commited by turkish pizza makers). They do it because it is much cheaper than real Mozzarella. That’s the real offense and it is done by all Pizza makers around, even the Italian born chefs.

  4. Oh no, that’s crap!
    Twitter is the last social media platform I seriously use – I could live without Facebook (I don’t use Insta or whatever comes to mind).
    Too bad but hey, there is Slack where you can still “threaten” people 😉

    Roberto, understand your frustration – but hoping you’ll come back on Twitter with a new, fresh handle ;o)
    Everything is a double-edged sword …
    More than ever we must hope that the inspectors and monitors of our behaviour understand and practice the “Spirit of the Law” rathet than the “Letter of the Law” …

    • They said that if I create new accounts they will suspend it as well. Got to be a bit creative…
