Twitter Track and Twitter Abuse

  1. I found this old post… I think you misunderstood what @panopticons was supposed to be about. It was not meant to simply echo and be a nuisance, but rather was designed to highlight the naive administration of twitter who were making the argument that free speech was allowed as long as there was no architectural infractions and there was no need for moderation as long as people could block. My thinking was that there was indeed harmful speech and @panoticons would prove my case. (Also people were naively believing in the interfaces security and felt that twitter was a suitable application for contacting military personnel) I was desperately asking for some form of moderation because I was being harassed myself. (those were the NAZIs I was screaming about that were never dealt with) They shot the messenger, but one year later I feel that I have not lost a thing by losing my twitter account because people's confidence in the twitter system has completely been shaken by the arbitrary terms that were upheld against me. I now follow conversations in friendfeed using “virtual accounts” and I do Disqus searches. I found this blog post on technoratti. I'm very happy on Seesmic and I feel I am still involved as a leader in community interface theory. By losing my twitter account I actually improved my online experience. I now don't have the noise that I had before and people know to get me on Seesmic where I can see people's faces and understand what they are all about. I'm sorry to of caused you the brief inconvenience, but I assure you my episode on twitter caused me a lot of anguish.

  2. So you were being harrassed by people I don't know and you decided to start making Twitter unpleasant for others who did you no wrong to let people know about your anguish??I'm sorry, but that's just messed up.I guess its beside the point that when you dragged me into this, I took the time to go to your blog, do some reading up on your points of views and then send you a personal email you to say I had no conflict with you and to ask that you stop interfering with my own experiemce… with no response.If this was some sort of self-indulgant crusade to raise awareness about your plight, that's fine. However, causing more harm in the ecosystem to others (who might have been sympathetic to your cause) was cometely the wrong way to go. Or, you could have at least answered my email in the spirit of humanity that you were trying to express with all of this.I didn't mis-understand the panopticons experiment, I was frustrated that you were so willing to throw bombs and create collateral damage from the very people that prob would have stood with you (like myself). Non-violent resistance would have been a much better path to achieving your goals.Sam

  3. That’s a ridiculous premise to begin with, especially for people like myself who use the track feature to engage in conversations with other users we might not have otherwise met. Then, using bullying tactics and spewing pretty hateful messages (calling specific Twitter users who object Nazis, etc) is just immature and shows the lack of a well thought out intention behind this sort of purposeful abuse.Thanks and Regards
