While Facebook quickly morphs in Fascistbook, many people have taken to Twitter. It’s bad, but not quite a bad as Zuckerberg’s social media site.
Now Twitter is banning its users for silly things. Need a prime example? Great, here’s one: a Japanese man’s account has been permanently frozen after he tweeted about killing a mosquito for biting him. The tweet from @nemuismywife specifically read, “Bastard! Where do you get off biting me all over while I’m just trying to relax and watch TV? Die! (Actually you’re already dead),” which he shared with a photo of the dead mosquito.
His crime? He was spreading a hateful, violent message.
Ma si può essere bannati da twitter perchè ha ucciso una zanzara e poi ha postato la foto dell'insetto, finalmente morto? 😂😂😂@DaydreamMatcha pic.twitter.com/odMYJIYcAT

Stefano’s response to the man translates into: “But you can be banned from twitter because he killed a mosquito and then he posted the photo of the insect, finally dead? 😂😂😂@DaydreamMatcha”
Fox News reports:
One thing to mention, though, that Twitter apparently did not realize: He was talking about a mosquito, which is also what his picture showed. As RocketNews24 reports, it appears an automated program flagged the account by searching for certain words and phrases.
The user, who is now tweeting as @DaydreamMatcha, received a notice from Twitter reading, “Thank you for using Twitter. Your account has been frozen because it was used to send messages containing threats. Tweets containing threats are not allowed under our terms of service. This account cannot be reactivated. Thank you for your understanding.”
He tweeted from his new account, “My account was permanently frozen after I said I killed mosquitoes … this is a violation?”

However, the new account is now gone as well.
Next thing you know, there will be #MosquitoLivesMatter marches. Liberals are so gullible, they would fight for it.
