Discovered this evening that the twitter thought police had suspended fibrefairy‘s twitter account, @fibrefairy, and they weren’t telling us why.

Some of her followers, self included, howled in protest at the injustice and cried out for reinstatement — and woosh, just like that, resurrection! Faster than Jesus — it took him three days!!

Twitter people: thank you. From #twitterfail to #twitterresult in under 4 hours: that’s class.

fibrefairy - faster than Jesus

fibrefairy - faster than Jesus

But things move faster now, 5 minutes now is the equivalent of 3 days ‘in them days’!

@fromthesamesky – they don’t ever have to give a reason, it’s an automated service, and some abnormal activity must have triggered the event. On notification, it takes as long as it takes a sysop to check out the situation and rectify it.

@fibrefairy emailed me to say that she had been suspended – I thought that she had just gone quiet 😉 and I tweeted to that effect, slightly ironically, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Just say it, you know you want to...
