If you cuss out *anyone* on Twitter, they will restrict or suspend your account. Ironically, if you cuss out misogynists, racists and homophobes who are *actively tweeting grossly offensive speech* the cusser will be the one whose account is limited (I *think* because of algorithms?) but the offensive mother fucker WON’T be suspended unless you report them and a human goes to check out their account. It’s EXTREMELY frustrating to call a total misogynist a “dumb motherfucker” and find yourself the one who is punished. It’s TOTAL BULLSHIT, and I’m sure the rules are the way they are because Twitter was started by white guys who do not understand how insidious harassment is.
