    Emergency Broadcast System activated – Free @Instapundit Twitter account #RespondTwitter (Update – Account restored)

    Emergency Broadcast System activated – Free @Instapundit Twitter account #RespondTwitter (Update – Account restored)

    Instapundit’s Twitter account has been suspended.

    The folks at Twitchy have the story:

    PJ Media’s Nina Yablok is trying to return the Twitter handle @Instapundit to the hands of trademark owner Glenn Reynolds, and she’s asking for help in getting Twitter’s attention.

    The long version of the story can be found on the PJ Tatler, but in short, the person maintaining the @Instapundit handle (with Reynold’s permission) has gone missing in action, and Yablok’s multiple attempts to contact Twitter regarding the matter have gone nowhere.

    The @Instapundit account has since been suspended, but Yablok hopes that retweets of the #RepondTwitter hashtag might help her reach a human being who can help resolve the situation.

    You can help by using the Emergency Broadcast Twitter box at the top of the sidebar.

    Update 7-31-2012 7:30 a.m. – The account has been restored, apparently by creating a new one with the name username, but anyone who followed will have to re-follow as all followers were lost: @instapundit.

    A bit of an oversight for Insty to allow such a thing without getting independent access.

    Things could have turned out much worse.

    Getting an actual human at insurance companies or technology companies can prove to be next to impossible. It is not by accident. These companies don’t care about service or the customer. You have no option in many cases…

    I think Instapundit is totally hosed due to the conflagration over the suspended twitter account of that journalist regarding the Olympics. Every lawyer at may be busy for some time…
