Many of you have noticed that my Twitter account with 13,400 followers has been suspended. Most likely permanently, but I will not be returning to Twitter anyway. I tried, it doesn’t work and actually I am not unhappy about that.
The reason I was suspended was a continuos campaign by French Nazis and other chloroquine fetishists spouting antisemitism, xenophobia, misogyny and threats of lethal violence. They kept reporting me for the ridiculing the crimes they and their idols themselves commit several times daily on Twitter and real life, without any sanctions from French authorities whatsoever. I was banned because they reported me as a One-Jew-Neonazi-Terror Cell.
Twitter (like Facebook, which I stopped using actively long ago) is a global enterprise which only answers to its billionaire investors and business customers. It polices its product range (i.e., the human Twitter community) by the algorithm based on how many reports it receives about spoilt produce. Exempt are of course celebrity fascists and quacks, you may recall that Donald Trump and Steve Bannon accounts were only suspended when these dangerous people lost their political power completely and thus their business appeal. Or do you really think Twitter would have suspended Trump’s account had his fascist Capitol storm succeeded and USA became a fascist dictatorship?
Because of the coordinated attacks by French Nazis who took issue with me being an jumped-up Jew, I was sanctioned by Twitter several times before my account was permanently suspended. What was the last drop? I satirised the vicious attacks on scientists who discuss the lab leak theory of the COVID-19 pandemic. Scientists who merely point out the lack of all evidence for zoonotic or “frozen red herring” origin. Scientists who merely reference peer reviewed literature about gain-of-function coronavirus research in Wuhan and elsewhere, official documents or the bizarre disappearance thereof, records of previous leaks and security breaches, the constant lies by the Chinese Communist Party, and the old media reports quoting the very same people who now aggressively try to silence everyone who even mentions lab leak.
Twitter was an unhealthy addiction for me anyway, I wasted too much time on it, time I could have used more productively. The only thing I miss about being on Twitter is the useful information I have been occasionally discovering and the means of communications with my readers.
The remaining Leonid Schneider on Twitter is a fake one (Is it you, Ajan? Or you, Fred Frontiers?), and there soon might be more of these now that the real one was banned. Interestingly, I once reported that fake account for impersonating me using my photo and my cartoons. Twitter made me send a scan of my personal ID to prove I am Leonid Schneider. After that, Twitter informed me there was nothing wrong with that impersonator account tweeting covid-19 conspiracies. So now I indeed became the fake Leonid Schneider, and this is social media for you. Now I look forward to be sued for what fake accounts with my stolen identity will tweet.
As you know, I have been sued several times, including over tweets. So again, maybe it’s not such a big loss to be off Twitter. Lawsuits are costly, if you can support me, you can do it here:
If you are interested to support my work, you can leave here a small tip of $5. Or several of small tips, just increase the amount as you like (2x=€10; 5x=€25). Your generous patronage of my journalism will be most appreciated!
There is also a monthly support option, e.g.
Finally, you can share my articles. This site will remain, and because I won’t be wasting time tweeting, I can spend more time writing.
A revolution with one central figure will fail. In certain other countries which quacks and fraudsters I wrote about, I would be probably dead already, or something would happen to my children (including in France, where the antisemitic chloroquine quack Pr Derriere is allowed to openly incite to murder, on Twitter of course). In Germany I merely got sued, and with your generous financial support I managed it so far.
So let’s continue our grass root revolution of science. Before you waited for me to tweet something, now do it yourself. Use social media (if it lets you), write emails, tell friends in chats.
