The popular microblogging network Twitter hit the social media spotlight tonight with some very interesting news. Users who posted that Dutch footballer’s name as a tweet on the platform were blocked from their accounts for 12 hours.
The latest interesting punishment that Twitter has introduced is the famous Dutch footballer Memphis Depay. Rather, it wasn’t Depay himself, but the reason he was banned for putting his name in a tweet. Users who tweeted this word were met with the following warning message:
“You have neglected our rules for publishing classified information. You cannot send other people’s private information without their express consent.”
Olympique Lyonnais, the club where the popular footballer played, immediately tweeted:
“Hey, Twitter. Can we talk about him?“
We recommend that you do not test this process so that your account is not blocked. Otherwise, you may not be able to access your account for 12 hours. However, there has already been a lot of confirmation that this is true. Twitter’s hilarious situation has become a laughing stock for social media users.
Why did Twitter ban the word Memphis?
Unfortunately, the reason for this is not yet clear. But initial estimates suggest the platform may have mistakenly done such a comical punishment. However, as we mentioned above, a statement was recorded from the platform regarding the blocking scandal that came to the poem Nazım Hikmet. So there’s a possibility that the Memphis mystery may never be learned.
And why do you think Twitter might have banned the word Memphis? Don’t forget to share your predictions with us.
