As you know, the Black American Leadership Alliance’s (BALA) twitter followers skyrocketed following our founder, Leah Durant’s appearance on O’Reilly last week. The next day, their twitter account was shut down. Here’s why. Recently we learned there are organized groups of Twitter subscribers who will bombard Twitter with complaints of “harassment” to target and shut down the accounts of those they disagree with. BALA and the DC March for Jobs is one of those groups that was targeted!
Here is the Bill O’Reilly segment
Memo from the BALA:
The Twitter community refers to these people as “Trolls.” There is a lot of evidence that this is an organized group of left-wing activists because the most common attacks are launched against conservative personalities. It is quite probable that the open border crowds have organized such a group that responds on command to various targets. When it happens it takes several days to restore the user’s Twitter subscriber base and continue operating. This is an outrageous attempt by the opposition to shut us up and hurt stop all communications about march. We will not be stopped! For those of you Twitter users who agree with BALA, and the purpose of the DC March for jobs, we are asking you to organize a group of Twitter account holders on our side to be alert for these kinds of attacks and demand that Twitter to ignore them and restore @BALAorg TODAY
