Twitter Blacklist: Will Your Site be Next?

Twitter blacklisted Barefoot Runner’s Life!!!!!!!

All existing Twitter links to this blog, many of which show up for searches, bring this warning page:

Twitter inexplicably bans barefoot runner's blog

If you click on the “Tweet” button above or try to TWEET a link to Barefoot Runner’ Life , you’ll see the error message:

Twitter CEonsorship. Blacklisted Blog
Unjust Twitter blacklist blog

I contacted Twitter support asking them to remove my site from the blacklist. They took off the list for a matter of minutes, but then placed it back. Twitter has NOT provided a reason for banning and maligning my Blog.

Here is the e-mail I sent:

False Positive for Blacklist

Someone blacklisted┬ámy site on Twitter. I am NOT a spammer or malicious hacker and my site does NOT and has NOT had any malware installed on it ( http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=http%3A%2F%2Fbarefootrunnerslife.com ). I’m just a blogger who runs barefoot. I would like to know why my site has been blacklisted. If I’m violating any of your guidelines, please let me know. I will correct whatever issue you have.

I urge Twitter users to contact Twitter support and request that this site be removed from the Blacklist.

Twitter censors blogs

  1. How sad. I recently mounted a WordPress blog using a free web hosting (www.000webhost.com). Aparently the majority of the domains owned by free hosting providers had been blackisted by Twitter and Facebook. It’s true, 5% of the users of those hosting services are hackers, but what about the 95% of simple newbies remaining?

    1. Thanks. I contacted Twitter and they did remove me from the blacklist. It was a major pain and they NEVER explained why they put me on the list. I was able to overcome the nasty message by using a URL shortener.
