Twitter suspended the astronomer’s account without proper explanation

Meteor video posted

Twitter blocks astronomer because of “intimate recordings”

Astronomer Mary McIntyre has been denied access to her Twitter account for three months. The reason for this: She reportedly got pregnant with something intimate.


Twitter suspended an astronomer’s account for allegedly intimate content.

Astronomer Mary McIntyre, from Oxfordshire in southern England, posted a video of a phenomenon in the night sky in mid-August. On it you can see the trace of the ionization of the Perseid meteorite. World says “epic”.

But Twitter temporarily banned her profile for 12 hours because of this video. Reason for ban: The video’s content is too “intimate.” She will only be able to access her account again if, like them, she deletes the video BBC mentioned. McIntyre didn’t, because in her opinion she didn’t do anything bad and certainly didn’t upload anything intimate.
