NEW: @Twitter has suspended the account of @UnplannedMovie, just after its premiere.
The pro-life film is already becoming one of the top films in American theaters.
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie UPDATE: @Twitter has reinstated @UnplannedMovie's account after suspending it.
But the damage is already done ... and not to the movie!
Twitter just did this film a favor!
For as long as it's in theaters, LET'S ALL MAKE SURE WE GO AND SEE IT!
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie NEW: @UnplannedMovie's account has just mysteriously lost its @Twitter follower count from over 100K to under 100.
The #Unplanned account was just deactivated and then reinstated by @Twitter over the weekend of its theatrical release.
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie UPDATE: For what it's worth, since Twitter mysteriously reduced @UnplannedMovie's followers a few minutes ago, I've tried following the #Unplanned account several times.
Every time, when I refresh the page, @Twitter seems to automatically undo my follow.
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie NEW: Tried it myself, and others reported to me that they're experiencing the same:
@Twitter HAS DISABLED users from following the account of @UnplannedMovie.
This is the weekend of the pro-life movie #Unplanned's debut in U.S. theaters, where it is outperforming expectations.
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie Despite restrictions, @UnplannedMovie's follower count is steadily climbing, and many are reporting that they ARE able to follow the account, while for others (including myself), @Twitter seems to be undoing our follow whenever we click refresh. #Unplanned
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie This @Twitter user has uploaded a helpful video that shows exactly what I'm experiencing:
#Twitter has disabled its users' ability to follow @UnplannedMovie, the account of the pro-life film #Unplanned.
This is the movie's opening weekend in theaters.

@Twitter @UnplannedMovie NEW: Ashley Bratcher, who stars in the film #Unplanned in the role of @AbbyJohnson, reacts to @Twitter's latest actions against the @UnplannedMovie Twitter account:
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie @AbbyJohnson UPDATE:
Although @UnplannedMovie seems to have attracted fully 61K new followers since @Twitter mysteriously reduced them from 100K to under 100, when I clicked o on #Unplanned's follower count, #Twitter reported "@unplannedmovie doesn't have any followers...."
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie @AbbyJohnson UPDATE:
Despite aggressive and mysterious restrictions, @UnplannedMovie has attracted OVER 200,000 NEW FOLLOWERS since @Twitter reduced their follower count to zero less than two hours ago.
If #Twitter was trying to hurt them, the backlash has far outweighed their effort!
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie @AbbyJohnson NEW: @Twitter has ONCE AGAIN reduced @UnplannedMovie's follower count, all the way from 200k down to 12k.
They do however seem to have recovered the accounts they were FOLLOWING (including mine).
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie @AbbyJohnson FINALLY:
WHY would they want to censor @UnplannedMovie? Same reason slave owners wouldn't want you to read an anti-slavery book in the 1850's!
This 3-minute video about #Unplanned explains. WATCH:
@Twitter @UnplannedMovie @AbbyJohnson End of thread! I'ma go to bed now and let this play out.
