Twitter reinstates ZeroHedge

Thanks for the mails, here’s an excerpt from this:
“We made an error in our enforcement action in this case,” a spokesperson for Twitter said in an email to The Verge on Saturday.
“Based on additional context from the account holder in appeal, we have
reinstated the account. We have a dedicated appeals process for all
account holders.”
Let us be clear, Twitter’s decision to reinstate ZeroHedge derives from exactly the same authoritarian platform as its decision to suspend. Their own explanation of the reasoning behind today’s decision to reinstate ZeroHedge displays the same fascist mentality that will undoubtedly snatch toys from prams once again in the future, once they have decided nobody is looking closely. There is no “process” or appeal required. You block freedom of expression and want to debate the nuances and come to a unilateral decision, judgment handed down from an internal corporate Star Chamber five months later?
Back in January and directly related to the ZH affair, I left Twitter. Totally unrelated to that, a few weeks ago I decided to remove swear words from my life and so far, that has been an interesting experience. I’ll admit to using one bad word twice on the phone to a friend the other day, but apart from that it’s been educative to restrict vocabulary and express myself using ‘words other than’. This gets mentioned because today is the most temptation I have felt over using them, after all they do have a useful place and are not illegal. But no, best just to tell Jack to make love to himself up the anus. I won’t be re-joining Twitter, no more mails thanks.

Hello, you are not in a chatroom, you are in my living room. Opposing views and criticisms welcome, insults or urinating on furniture unwelcome. Please refrain from swearing if possible, it is not needed.
