Quite obviously my coverage of Libya has a lot of people upset. I had received a concerted barrage of attacks by suspiciously similar accounts all tweeting 24/7 for weeks regarding Libya, all overtly pro-NATO just before my account was suspended. I was covering the Rixos Hotel and how even mainstream media admitted that snipers were targeting the building and Qaddafi’s troops were attempting to protect it. Despite this the media suggests the journalists are “hostages.” The troops have now, in fact, allowed them to leave. This was yet another hoax, on par with the “Saif al-Islam” hoax where a very much free and energetic Saif showed up to personally dispel BBC, CNN, Al Jazeera, NATO propaganda.

This user is attempting to rally other cyber-trolls to censor Land Destroyer’s message regarding the truth in Libya by concertedly reporting the account as “spam.” (Click image to enlarge.)
Twitter may or may not be directly behind this – there is no way of knowing – however they have a “report spam” feature that is easily exploited by large groups of organized bloggers who can simply “report as spam” any message not to their liking. What sort of investigation or oversight goes on behind the scenes to vet these reports, I do not know, I was also never sent any sort of e-mail regarding why my account was suspended. This also occurred at the height of the Malaysian Bersih hysteria – where US-funded protesters were trying to gain momentum against Malaysia’s decidedly anti-globalist government. A Land Destroyer account was also suspended as I exposed US funding and its agenda behind the street protests.
@landdestroyerW still works – so please feel free to follow Land Destroyer’s commentary there. Also, Land Destroyer maintains a WordPress site http://landdestroyer.wordpress.com/ which is being updated and will continue to be updated in tandem with this site in case it goes offline.
