|I run the bot @BitmexRekt that posts liquidations (when traders lose everything) on the Bitmex exchange.|
It's mildly popular on Twitter with 45k+ followers, and even got mentioned on Nouriel vs Arthur Hayes debate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlZukhN_C6c (~2:50 minute mark).
Yesterday the bot was permabanned by Twitter, and Twitter is accusing me of "impersonation" which is obvious to anyone that has seen the profile that it is clearly not impersonating anyone. However Twitter is sticking to their guns and insists that the bot, which has been running for more than 3 years, is an impersonator.
Is there no way of getting a real person from Twitter to review this?
