Cutting in the Sub-Light Engines and Exiting TwitterSpace...
I just want to let everyone know that I appreciate your support. Please bear with me as you get inundated initially with update emails as I migrate some of my old threads here so that body of work is available to everyone.
Tyvm -- I am perplexed as well. Hard to have faith in a platform that arbitrarily censors people without explanation.
I quit three weeks ago for a similar arbitrary in stated offense. Can happily attest that life, real, actual life, has been substantially better without it. Happy to see that the valuable content creators like yourself are migrating too. Here’s to reading old books and clearing out headspace from Twitter detritus!
Twitter will get your feed fixed. Your just a nice guy sharing your informed thoughts (mostly business). Unlike the earlier actual censorship targeting people for having the wrong thoughts (mostly medical and political), this is simply a software mistake.
Really enjoy your stuff, somewhat confused at what the possible reasons could be for a ban when you're one of the most nonconfrontational and friendly people on Twitter. I'll read your stuff wherever it is but certainly hope they recognize the mistake.
Outrageous. Shame on $TWTR and Elon! Honestly, I'd rather read Michael's articles than unfolding those imbedded threads-Try as I may, I still find twitter's threads somewhat confusing. So glad you are back!!!
I really wish I could afford some of the content on this platform in terms of FinTwit people making the move. I just can’t. I’m learning as much as I can about finance/money matters but am also an artist just trying to get by...not exactly in the upper end of the financial “club”. Money is tight and savings still has to be my number 1 focus. So I hope all of the great info here reaches enough people on the lower side of incomes. I told Doomberg the same thing. I wish you well Michael. It’s a shame I haven’t been able to read you on Twitter. Be well.
Never. No chance I’d ever do that. This was all organic growth over 2 years. The only thing I did in my Blue application that might have triggered something is that I inadvertently used another email, but I pointed this out to Twitter probably 15x to no avail. Very frustrating.
I appreciate all you do!!! Thanks and if we ever run into each other, beers on me over some hard rock/metal music.
Elon is another pos. I have never trusted that guy. How can you trust a guy that would like to connect our brains to his computers? (Neuralink= How can we trust a giu that depends on wall street and the money of the government? Never rely on just one platform. Well done. 👍
I think Twitter wants to crack down on "dollar bulls". I've always maintained media platforms will start censoring high quality macro analysis as the recession fears intensify. You're analysis is clearly over the target.
Do you know what the offending tweet was? I know they frequently don’t specify. I’m just curious. Enjoy the liberty of Substack. Sic semper tyrannis.
Was it the something you said about the TWTR-Musk deal being akin to AOL-Time Warner?
A seemingly likely explanation to me is that you were fraudulently reported by a large number of users who wanted you gone from twitter (your pinned tweet gives a clue as to who...). Due to the large number of reports you were automatically taken down but after manual review, you're back. If you leave twitter, the entity that got you taken down will have achieved what they set out to do.
We seriously hope this is a technical glitch.
May be fintwit needs to move to mastodon.
