Janet Bloomfield is the founder and woman behind the Twitter account @JudgyBitch1
She has approximately 15,000 followers and her weekly Twitter reach is just under 50,000, according to SumAll.
Her account was just suspended for tweeting out the actual words of a far left Guardian journalist.
Today she wrote in about her ordeal.
I have twice been suspended from Twitter after harassment campaigns from other Twitter users who are angry with me for being the main driver behind the #WomenAgainstFeminism hashtag. My account has never tweeted abuse nor have I ever threatened anyone, although I frequently get death threats myself.
My most recent suspension is the result of me tweeting the actual words of Guardian journalist Jessica Valenti back to her. Prompted by @davidfutrelle, a harassment campaign to report me for spam/abuse was undertaken by users who appear to be under the impression that I made up the Valenti quotes and falsely attributed them to her. This is not true. Valenti did indeed write that wrapping Christmas presents oppresses women, and that “jingle bell time aside, it’s [Christmas] a goddam clusterfuck.”. I did not make these words up. They are her own.
This is the third time that I have been wrongly targeted, and I have requested that Twitter restore and verify my account to avoid further issues. To date, Twitter has not responded. Is Twitter allowing their harassment tools to be used to silence dissenting voices? Since when is tweeting a journalist’s words back at her harassment?
