I earlier named a plagiarist on Twitter, and instead of him getting kicked off, I got kicked off! How about that? So, Twitter can twit off from now on! I am going to bed, 3 in the morning! But what do you think? should I have been told off? or should he?
Good Lord! I have heard it all now. They kicked you off? For what? I take it in their eyes his theft is ok but how dare you mention it? I'm sure most thieves would love to see that defense work in court. I think he should be suspended and Twitter owes you an apology! In your words... "Twitter can twit off." Well stated!
Did you go about it in a harassing way? That is the only thing I can figure out. Maybe they didn't like how you made the post. Secondly they probably didn't want to be an outlet for posting potentially
They could be sued you know. So if this is the case, it was a healthy business decision. I wouldn't worry about it.
Are you sure you were right? Because if Twitter had any reason to think otherwise allowing you to stay would expose them to a slander/libel suit.
Edited to add: You still look to have a twitter account to me? http://twitter.com/#!/NellRose1
Nell, you're very definitely still on Twitter as I've just followed you.
However there are no tweets regarding plagerism, so maybe they were deleted?
You should contact Twitter Nell. Maybe it's against their TOS to name and shame, maybe it would leave them open to a law suit or something?
Nell it seems absurd if it turns out you have been banned for exposing a plagiarist.Did someone plagiarise a hubber? Twitter is not about original content, hence the retweet button. Hopefully, this is just a misunderstanding.
That's messed up.I never really thought there was a point to twitter, but plagiarism still counts as some sort of offense, that's like stealing from a direct website...or a book. Try talking to the head hancho about it, ad see if he could help clear your username, i'm pretty sure it was just a misunderstanding. Depending on its importants, do everything you can to get the ownership of the information back (anything legal anyway)
It seems to me that Nell misunderstood something. Her twitter is still there. (Also I have outed plagiarists via Twitter at least three times with no issues at all).
Hi, sorry it took me so long to come back, not feeling to good today. I don't think I explained it very well. I was searching for my hubs being copied, found one, saw that he was on twitter and went to twitter. I then named him, and later on last night I realised when I went back into it, that my account was still there, but they had taken my followers of and who I followed, in others words as the message to my email stated, they muted me! I had a ticket in the corner that I had to send back to them with an apology, now I am back to normal, sorry for the misunderstanding, it seems that we are not allowed to out these people. Another thing is, if you are on twitter, I suggest you change your password as someone has hacked loads of people. me, jimmy the jock, shalina and a few others.
You should at least try to contact people before you get the pitchforks out
I did, for about two days, but he totally ignored me, but thats the last of it, I am not going to bother any more, there is too much hassle involved, I will just write hubs and forget it now. it was two in the morning, and I wasn't thinking straight, I haven't felt well today, so I will just keep on doing what I do. you mentioned copying comments? not sure who said that, I was talking about the hubs?
Did you file a DMCA? Don't mean to be hard on you but that will have more chance of getting the copy removed than naming him on Twitter.
I mentioned comment because someone in that hub' comments printed a DMCA she had filed because someone used her comment in a hub.
I am sorry this happened to you Nell. I read you Plagiarism hub and was wondering if it happened to you.
Shoot, I rarely tweat anything. I personally don't see whats so hot about Twitter. Steve Martin still won't return my tweats. (laughing)
You sure don't pull your punches.(Intimate evo) Have you got something against Nell? Or are you naturally pugnacious? Just going to check your hubs. Guessing you will be in the 10K - 100 k range. I do find the forums a great place at the moment.People seem edgy, short tempered, frightened and perplexed.
I don't think her remark was personal. Probably if she was more familiar with Nell and knew the kind of writer she is, she would know that Nell would not have gone about it in a 'harassing way' as she put it.
On the other hand, I guess I expect all writers to stick together especially with something like this. I didn't appreciate her stating that it was a healthy business decision, it seemed insensitive to me.
From their perspective it is a healthy business decision. They are more likely to not be sued now. That's a heathly choice.
Running a business isn't all sugar plums and sweet nothings.... There is no time for sensetivity.
Better she figures it

banned her so she
doesn't waste lots of

her post that she

Oh heavens no... I have nothing against Nell.
I don't lie to people. I prefer telling the person the straight facts when it comes to business affairs, & be frank with
them about what I
think rather than

In no way am I edgy, perplexed or short tempered here. Facts are facts. Like I told her, I wouldn't worry about it. They most likely made a business decision. They are a hugh business. They have to protect themselves. I am brief in my original post because it is what it is.
I reread my post. In no way did I slam Nell or personally attack her character. I am not sure how you come up with the notion that I might have something against this hubber based off what I wrote... explain to me how telling this hubber the truth is personally attacking her or being mean? That is what you meant in ypur snappy post to me isn't it?
Intam E I agree Nell wasn't looking for pity or sympathy. I think she was looking for empathy. Perhaps that word is not in your business dictionary.
No offence meant but I have yet to learn how to do those smiley faces symbols.
Looks like you can't name him here either, since all the posts referring to his name and sites have been removed!
So this person can quite happily continue to copy other people's work without anyone being alerted to who they are?
Looks like the big guys always win. Do you consider to bring this case to a higher level or do you want to let it subside?
I think Nell should pursue the matter as you say bring it to a higher level. If the matter is left like this then the 'copier' will certainly never learn not tocopy someone else work, not right now anyway.
