Twitter vs. TeamBoston: a timeless battle
ICYMI: It’s 2020 and Twitter still hates Red Sox Life and Celtics Life. Continue showing us your support through the site and media; suggestions on how you can help are listed below.
After over a decade on the social media platform, in October of 2019, Twitter suspended the accounts of Red Sox Life and partnering site Celtics Life. Followed by thousands, the Twitter pages are a way fans can get easily notified on media when an article is posted. Through Twitter, Boston fans have gotten regular content during the season and the offseason on the Red Sox and Celtics on various topics in a timely manner through the Team Boston sports blogs. The least we deserve is an explanation. So, we got one.
After some mild probing, the accounts were unsuspended! LET’S GO! Yeah no way it was going to be that easy. And just like that—the accounts are suspended again. No explanation. No urgency to get either page running again. Here we are with no ability to Tweet our content.
Will @twitter which apologized for accidentally suspending @celticslife, but then suspended them accidentally again a month ago un-suspend them by Christmas? @TwitterBoston— TEAMBOSTON (@teamboston) December 24, 2019
