Twitter: Prove you’re human

Well, that was weird. I hit like on a sarcastic tweet about Brexit and Twitter forced me to prove I was a human because I broke the rules apparently.

It just goes to show that when you rely on a site you don’t control or own to publish you don’t really own your own data. I’m preparing a Twitter backup, just to be careful.

I had the same thing happen to me this morning, and it happened to Jeremy recently too! I thought it was maybe because I was reporting too many spambots/pornbots as spam, but I guess not! I wonder what triggered it? I wonder if their systems are a little too sensitive these days for some reason?
