.@Jack, from the bottom of my heart: thank you. This will make the lives of a lot of people tangibly better. I will now unblock every company on the #BlockParty500 list. All: if you've been manually blocking as a part of this effort, pls. manually unblock. buzzfeednews.com/article/charliโ€ฆ
Some are saying @Jack only made this move b/c #BlockParty500 affected Twitter's ad revenues. That may or may not be true, but I think it's important to acknowledge it when companies do the right thing for any reason b/c it's not inevitable they will, even w/ coordinated pressure.
By the way, I hope that Twitter banning Alex Jones means that Wil Wheaton will come back to Twitter. I get that he's having a better life now and all but he needs to understand that this is about MY needs. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Shout out to all #DeactiDay participants! You guys are hardcore. ๐Ÿ’ช

I just added Bank of America to the #GrabYourWallet boycott list and every @BankofAmerica Twitter handle to the #BlockParty500 list. +
To encourage banks to avoid divisiveness in general I've also just added the world's 150 largest financial institutions to the #BlockParty500 list including @BankUnited, @Barclays, @CreditSuisse, @DeutscheBank and Silicon Valley Bank (@SVB_Financial).
Last Tweet on this for now: banks tend to sponsor a lot of big infrastructure and events. All their related Twitter handles, i.e. @BNPPARIBASOPEN and @BancStadium are being added to #BlockParty500 as well, our first foray into blocking any remotely content/ent. related channels.

Good morning, all! Lots of people asking for the updated #BlockParty500 numbers. I want so badly to share them but I know you'll understand when I say that I've made the strategic decision to share them w/ a well known media outlet instead of Tweeting them this time. +
If this story does indeed go forward (they're currently thinking probably tomorrow morning), it would be so impactful, b/c it's an outlet that a lot of the Fortune 500 executives on the #BlockParty500 list read and respect. Fingers crossed. +
So, please bear with me while I do my very best not to blurt out all kinds of news here today and keep signing up for the block list. (Here's the link: bit.ly/2MAd0tg). Thanks. We can do this.

Once again: no I'm not boycotting or deactivating my account on Friday.

I don't know why it's hard to consult the major communities in here before picking arbitrary dates & decisions.
Of course this whole thread about alternate ways to protest was mysteriously deleted.

Anyway. This is a really good thread about why some of us can't/won't leave or be pressured into the kinds of actions that have impact contrary to our goals.

Good morning! To encourage Twitter to drop Alex Jones, I just blocked the Twitter accounts of every Fortune 500 company w/ a Twitter presence. Ready to mass block Twitter's most lucrative advertisers with me? There are three quick & easy ways. Instructions are in this thread.
Option One: The quickest, easiest way is to use a free tool called Block Together. Using it, I created a custom block list to which you can subscribe w/ a few clicks. This doesn't negate/overrule your own block list. Youโ€™ll just be blocking my own list in addition to your own...
To subscribe to my block list, just click this custom link: bit.ly/2MAd0tg. Then click the button that says โ€œBlock All and Subscribe.โ€ Then click the blue โ€œAuthorize Appโ€ button. Voila! Youโ€™re now blocking all the companies on my list!
