The Twitter account encouraging people to join rival social network Mastodon has been suspended, the latest in a string of accounts suspended this week. The usual feed for @JoinMastodon was replaced Thursday with a message the account had been suspended for violating Twitter rules.

Telegram users have been self-destructing messages since the beginning – and now they can set a custom account-wide timer to auto-delete all messages in new chats. You can also easily enable auto-delete in your existing chats from the same menu. #TelegramTips pic.twitter.com/8IDM7XaVqs

I know of nothing they ever did that would merit a suspension on this site.
