From Sep 23 2021 to Oct 1 2021, the @205_Sports account was blocked by Twitter due a tweet allegedly containing “privately produced/distributed intimate media of someone without their expressed consent”. As this was the second tweet in a 3 week period flagged by Twitter, the account was suspended for 12 hours.
The tweets in question are original animated @TacticalPad videos edited and produced using @Camtasia. We use @MeetEdgar for content distribution. 205 Sports has published @TacticalPad material for almost 2 years with no issues until recently.
It is our statement that Twitter’s flagging of the videos was incorrect based on false results from their automated tools. Both tweets were flagged within less than 1 minute of submission.
Since we do not know exactly what about the animated videos resulted in flagging the account, we do not know how to modify our video product to prevent any future issues. We are currently looking at methods to produce videos that do not result in a further suspension of the 205 account.
To reiterate – the videos in question are all animated @TacticalPad content and do not include “intimate media”.
