I've Been Sent Back Until my Task is Done!
Resurrected to Twitter and given maximum exposure in the most crucial of times
Almost a year and a half ago, in October of 2021, I was suspended from Twitter. It was my largest social media platform, having grown to 19 thousand followers in less than a year. Not only was it my largest platform, but it was also the most useful, as a good networking tool, visibility enhancer, and a tap into the political zeitgeist.
Being banned didn’t stop me from making new accounts. I made four, two of them reaching over 10 thousand followers. But the ban hammer came for all, at one point making it impossible for me to even create a fake name with no attachment to any of my external media. They’d always figure out it was me, and deal with my existence on the platform accordingly.
Finally, after dozens of appeals, my account was reinstated last Thursday.
To some, it was like I had risen from the dead. Even though my political activism had not stopped, if you are not on Twitter, you are truly dead to the political world. The timing for my resurrection could not have been more perfect, as I was going on Timcast that very night with my friend Jose Galison. Check out the episode here
I got to make several strong points, one of the best clips I posted on Twitter which got almost 100 thousand views.
And as if those two things alone, aren’t enough exposure, I will be a featured speaker at the Rage Against the War Machine rally in Washington D.C. on Sunday outside the White House.
I’ve reached a weird point in my life. Just as I was deciding to redirect the podcast and try to step back from political activism, I have been given back my largest platform and given the largest exposure I’ve ever had.
In the last few months, I have focused more on my job and myself than I had for the last few years. I made multiple 5 figure paychecks just in January, averaging over 100 hours per week, and I had driven myself to the point of exhaustion, even falling asleep in my computer chair waiting for a podcast guest and waking up too late.
But regardless of my sustained conviction to direct people toward solutions in their own lives that they can implement instead of waiting on the government to unfuck itself, this issue is so important and could potentially destroy the entire world if not addressed, and I think all of us need to come together under this banner in opposition to entering another world war.
So come join me in D.C. if you can, and make sure to tell your representatives to support Defend the Guard legislation. Insisting that the far east region of Ukraine be under Zelensky’s control is not worth dying in a nuclear holocaust.
