[liberationtech] Where can I find the Twitter censorship handbook?

  Have you tried contacting twitter support directly? In the first
instance, it's likely that you were reported by someone who saw it and took
offense to it.

  As for having tweets reported for spam, it could have been a competitor
(and that type of reporting is easy to automate). But the Twitter spam
algorithm could also have interpreted the [short tweet length + link +
popular hashtag] as being spam.

  From a merchant perspective, we kind of operate at her majesty's
pleasure.  By that I mean that social networks make the rules, enforce them
(or not), and our only real recourse is to move to another, less populated
social network.  I'd recommend talking to twitter support before totally
writing it off, but you might not get a resolution for the reasons
mentioned above.
