Twitter unblocks Aisha Yesufu, blames Bot, apologises

Aisha Yesufu, the #BBOG co-founder is live again on Twitter, hours after her account was temporarily locked by the social media platform.

Twitter has unlocked the account, with an apology, explaining that its bot mistakenly flagged Aisha’s account as a spam.

“This can happen if an account exhibits automated behaviour in violation of our rules’, Twitter said in a letter sent by support@twitter.com.

A relieved Aisha tweeted the development, along with a mail sent by Twitter: “Thank you everyone for your voices. I have gotten a mail from @Twitter and I am back. I will continue to be a voice. My voice is not for myself alone but for so many others who unfortunately did not get that education that so many of us take for granted to have a voice.THANK YOU”.
