Twitter has been cracking down on underwear-gear lovers with TOS violations. I know many who have been hit with this and been kicked off the service. On Friday, UNB was hit with this violation. Our account was locked until I appealed the decision or deleted the “offending” picture. 

This is the offending pic: 

Here is the new pic (changing soon):

I created this pic after the initial wave of guys getting hit with this “TOS” violation. I chose images that I thought were ok because they weren’t overly sexualized. They didn’t show a close-up of a bluge, no thongs from the back, and no big bulges. 

So what can you do to ensure your account is as safe? (Note this is not a guarantee but some tips that will hopefully help, I’m at the point I don’t know anymore, there are no guarantees for safety): 

  1. Don’t post any pics of you or others wearing underwear in your profile pics. I would suggest posting a pic of underwear laying on a bed or hanging from a hook. 
  2. If you have a logo, use that as your avatar – something created like a logo will not be flagged as a TOS violation. As long as it’s not graphic or “sexual.”
  3. If you don’t have a logo, post a generic pic as your avatar, such as your favorite beach, a landscape, a cityscape, or something very general. 
  4. Create a quote in a service like Canva where it’s just words, but don’t use profanity or sexual terms. 
  5. If you are in doubt, leave the profile header blank; why risk it when you don’t have to be at the will of Twitter.

This convinces me even more; we need a social media network for men’s underwear lovers. There are multiple double standards that I don’t think we are ever going to overcome. Twitter has been the last place underwear lovers can go to post pics and not be harassed until recently. Many are getting the TOS violation for their profiles, and they started adding “sensitive content” for pictures that contain nudity. However, this is on top of marking your content as “sensitive,” and this service is not applied evenly. Some pics do not contain nudity and get flagged, and in the next pic, the person may have featured a full-on erect cock and no warning. 

I’m just frustrated at this and don’t see this getting better. Things have become more challenging since Tumblr banned “nudity and pornography.” Facebook has always had a double standard for men and women; we all know and are aware of the problems posting on FB. Twitter is cracking down; I’m pissed off and trying to figure out the next move for men’s underwear and social media.
