Giant social network, Twitter has banned a Japanese user for making a death threat on a mosquito.
The Japanese user identified as @nemuismywife seems to have generated lots of attention from social media because of Twitter’s harsh decision.
According to BBC’s report on the story, It started on August 20 when he was repeatedly bitten by a mosquito as he watched TV.
After he killed the mosquito, he tweeted: “Where do you get off biting me all over while I’m just trying to relax and watch TV? Die! (Actually, you’re already dead).” He then attached a picture of the dead mosquito to his tweet.
Later after that, he received a message from Twitter notifying him that his account had been frozen and could not be reactivated.
With rage and in order to reply twitter he signed up for a new Twitter account, @DaydreamMatcha, to criticise Twitter’s decision on his tweet.
He tweeted: “My previous account was permanently frozen after I said I killed a mosquito. Is this a violation?”
His angry tweet was reported to have been retweeted more than 31,000 times and liked more than 27,000 Twitter users.
Some anonymous response to Twitter’s action on the user said his account wasn’t deactivated by a human action but automatically done by a programmed instruction on the computer which would flag online abuse or harassment.
