I woke up one morning to a DM from Satan. I wrote about what happened next...  https://onezero.medium.com/349a2a2bce32 

Twitter sent the following (somewhat?) clarifying statement re: its mysterious de-listing of @s8n, which I've added to the bottom of my story:  https://onezero.medium.com/how-satan-was-disappeared-from-twitter-349a2a2bce32 

I don't blame Twitter for wanting a way to algorithmically de-amplify accounts based on their behavior, and it has no doubt helped to make the site feel cleaner. But I also don't blame those affected for feeling strongly that they deserve an explanation and a chance to fix it.
