We’re not sure if it’s a simple mistake or a concerted effort by the company to hide behind a social media platform that’s been around for decades, but one Twitter user has noticed that the company is deleting tweets that mention the diasporas social network.
A tweet by a user named “Juan Luis” has been deleted from the platform.
“Why is Twitter removing my tweets that refer to diasocas social media network?” the user wrote.
The account, which has more than 1,000 followers, was apparently created in January, the same month Twitter suspended the account of the Twitter user Juan Luis for posting a tweet that referenced the social network’s website.
Twitter removed the tweet within 24 hours of being alerted to it, and a new account was created for Juan Luis.
Twitter said it would look into the deletion, but it has not provided any explanation as to why it was happening.
“We don’t want to comment on the reasons behind the decision,” the Twitter spokesperson told Business Insider.
Twitter says it does not remove content “because it would violate our Terms of Service or we believe it violates our Community Standards.”
The spokesperson also said that the account has “never been associated with any illegal activity.”
The account is now deleted, but we will be checking back to see if the account is back online.
