Anyone else blocked by Playtonic's twitter?

Postby jackie » Sun Oct 04, 2015 11:59 pm

I felt this was the appropriate section seeing as it's under 'Playtonic'.

I followed their twitter and would check periodically for updates. I've literally only tweeted to Playtonic once with a question about 40 days ago.

This occurence is so random, I wonder if this has happened to anyone else? This must have happened in the past 24 hours because I could view their account yesterday.

What disturbs me is that someone with access to the account conciously sought out my account and blocked me. It's a bit creepy.

My account is @HelloJackieM. See anything even mildly offensive there?

All I can guess is that the account was handed over to some wacko PR person who doesn't want their followers talking about other games.

Can people at least take this seriously? It's REALLY weird that a group would block their fans/folowers on Twitter - It's a cause for concern.

Edit: For context, this post was made before the preceeding spammy/off-topic posts were removed.

Hmm. That is strange. And I don't even have Twitter.

Try emailing Playtonic. Unless you did something, like spam them, I'm sure it's all just an innocent mistake.

Sorry we were just pranking you a little bit.

But yeah I don't really see a reason for them blocking you. Maybe it was a finger slip.

I hope you get this fixed soon!

They get lots of notifications everyday directing to the tweet (including the user profile link)

an unlocked cellphone in some pants bags can do a lot of messy things.

If the team has not pronounced here yet, there could be a more logical reason than the "finger slip" one.

What's your twitter id?
maybe we can post to them and ask them why @you is blocked.

Did this ever get resolved? I'd be gutted if it happened to me and it would make me feel sour about backing their campaign.
