    KanColle Official Twitter Account suspended.

    So, I heard on 4chan that the KanColle_Stafff Twitter account has been suspended. Sure enough, I tried to visit the page and got this.

    What the hell is going on?

    Must be people spamming reports on their account to such a degree, that Twitter suspended the account first and asks questions later. Due to the Intrepid hate.

    Intrepid wasn't the cause. Some people had been reporting earlier in the day the fact they couldn't see their profile pic due to "copyright infringement". It may arguably also be the cause of the twitter silence from devs for some good hours (as in they were muted by Twitter).

    Given how some pages of their Twitter merely hangs loading, rather than showing the "suspend" page, I suspect you may be right.

    @Laisy

    The people of towns named Essex all over the world would like a word with you.

    In reality it's not too hard to get someone's twitter account suspended through manipulation. Mass reporting (a la Skype) probably doesn't work too well anymore, however certain patterns of bots following and retweeting/reposting in a short timespan will reliably trigger the ban hammer, and that's just a couple of methods I am aware of. I don't know who and why someone did it, but I am surprisingly not that upset about it (Schadenfreude much?).

    It also exposes another issue with communication they had for a while - this game has not had an official website or any alternative social media accounts since 2014, now their twitter account is gone no information can get out. No, nobody is going to use that message board on DMM.

    @Laforet I'm not the one that came up with the horrible pun ^_^;

    And ya, the lack of other means of communication channel was pointed out by many in the wake of the Twitter acount suspended.

    The whole incident might not be specifically targeting Kancolle, since Kadokawa's official twitter has gone down too.



    Will only return for Yuzuki.
