    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.

    I suspect that if he submitted it as a technical support issue, asking for help with an rss feed they would just make the changes for them, and once that’s corrected get the account access he wants.

    He is up and tweeting now!

    in an amazing and unprecedented event, Twitter wouldn’t let me poast until after the news that the rights had been restored…

    a cynical person might think they were censoring teh Twitter feed.

      NO WAY! I am stunned!

      This is Sparta, AMERICA! And you have the right to “poast” and “toast” anywhere you want! Don’t let Twitter and Obama take away another right!
