• magisterrex Retro Games


    I've been gaming since the days of Pong and still own a working Atari 2600. I tend to ramble on about retro games, whether they be board games, video games or PC games. Sometimes I digress. Decades after earning it, I'm finally putting the skills I learned while completing my history degree from the University of Victoria to good use. Or so I think. If you're into classic old school gaming, this blog is for you!

Twitter Account Suspension Update

As mysteriously as it began, today the suspension of the @magisterrex Twitter account was ended.  Why was it suspended in the first place?  Clearly someone thought a rule was broken, but which one?  The email response from Twitter contained two sentences:  “It looks like this issue has been resolved. You may wish to review the Twitter Rules, located at twitter.com/rules.”  This seems to be Twitter’s only response to questions: go and review the rules; if you don’t know which rule you transgressed, too bad.  You think eBay or PayPal have terrible communication skills?  Nothing matches Twitter for sheer indifference.  All in all, what a bizarre experience this has been.  Unfortunately, judging from the response time and lack of notice or explanation, this will happen to someone else again.  Soon.

It ain't over 'till it's over. Oh, wait. It's over.

  2. Glad to have you back!
