Let Adobe block my Twitter account via an DMCA complaint after a critical report about issues?
So now it's happened: Twitter has suspended my account because Adobe filed a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) complaint against a tweet of mine about bugs in the Adobe Acrobat DC installer. I has see this coming, since it hit a blog reader two days earlier and I alerted Adobe's social media teams about this false case via Twitter. Stupidity? Ignorance? Or simply keeping unwelcome coverage off the Internet?
I have now reactivate the Twitter account – but I would be permanently banned if I received another DMCA complaint. So I also submitted a counterstatement to Twitter, but I don't see much chance. Since I had a manageable number of followers (around 1,000), the damage in this respect is limited. But the process shows me how broken the whole online thing basically is. Anyway, I'm going to disable the plugin that posts blog content on Twitter – and I remove also the the Twitter references from my blogs. Farwell. And I will increase my fight to go more in an open source direction and limit the dependencies on huge US IT giants. Adobe products haven't been used here for years. The last occasions was mentions of Adobe products in German computer books written by me, years ago.
