UPDATE II: 5/11/13 (10:30am) Sometime yesterday evening I got my tweeps back. Yea! Thanks to Twitter and all of the fine folks who helped resolve that ordeal. I never heard why the accounts were suspended though. Strange. However (isn’t there ALWAYS a however?) Steve’s account is still suspended!
Be sure to turn up the heat on Twitter to get
@stevemct released from Twitmo!
UPDATE 5/10/13 (6:23pm)
I’m out of Twitmo, along with
@kshaidle @Moonbattery1 (who I was unaware were in suspended to begin with.) & @GoldwaterGal but we’ve all lost our following/followers lists! I had over 3000 and I kmow the others had to have more due to their popularity.
I’m still petitioning twitter on behalf of @SteveMCT who is still suspended, and trying to get our lists back.
Still haven’t received any info from Twitter as to why or what happened.
The only cool thing is, it’s kinda fun to see the follower list repopulating so quickly. Seems like it took fo-eh-vah to get it where it was the first time.
Thanks again for all of your help and support!
Robo-love to you all. ~ ‘bot

#FreeMindNumbedRobot is not something I would have ever expected to see trending on the Twitterz, but for a time yesterday, it did. You see, yesterday evening as I sat down for a bite before band rehearsal, I checked my @mnrobot account to find it had been suspended and that I would need to submit a support ticket.
What ever for? What heinous crime had I perpetuated? Which hideous leftist troll had I provoked into lodging a complaint against me?
I still have no clue. I dutifully submitted the support request. Their automated reply service sent a return email stating that if I was suspended for automated or aggressive following behavior that I would have received an email stating such and if I hadn’t that I should send them a reply to the present email to re-open the ticket. Really? The ticket I just opened is AUTOMATICALLY closed unless I send a reply email? – Tedious, but very well. I sent the reply and have yet to receive another communication. *robo-sigh*
Then, with only a few moments to spare before rehearsal time, from my secondary account, @TxConservNews, (You ARE following @TxConservNews, aren’t you?) I made a basic message to some of the #tcot #tlot #vrwc Twitterati:

By then, I was out of time for twitter pleading. I had music to attend to. Thus, it was to my great and humbling surprise when, during the course of the evening, I checked my twitter accounts from my schmaht-phone and found an amazing outpouring of support for little old me.
My musician friends (Who drools a lot and hangs out with Musicians? – Drummers! ~ Har!) looked at me with a deer-in-the-headlights stare when I couldn’t help myself and attempted to share how cool it was to see so many come to my defense. Even @Instapundit retweeted a few pleas!
“Twitter? Wut’s that?”

I’ll let you click the link http://t.co/5sc3iuAbXN to find out who is happy I’m in #TwitterGulag. – Priceless.
Another tweet worthy of note was from @MObeso71

During the evening it also came to light that Twitter has suspended other members of our conservative band of bloggers/twitterati. My #vrwc friend @Stevemct (MotorCityTimes.com) has also been suspended and
@GoldwaterGal is suspended as well. What gives, Twitter?
Another good friend in the #vrwc, Chris Wysocki of Wyblog posted a plea at his new place Pretty Fly for a Jersey Guy #FreeMindNumbedRobot, please help get @mnrobot out of #TwitterGulag. Thanks bro!
I’ll not waste your time sharing every tweet here but please accept my sincere thank you for the show of support. As of this posting, my account is still suspended. If you would like to petition Twitter for my release, I of course would be grateful for any help. I would ask to please keep it clean and un-accusatory. I still do not know the reason for the suspension(s). Please direct your tweets to @twitter @support and in my case you can include the hashtags #FREE@mnrobot
