Threatening mosquitoes on Twitter could get you banned from the platform
A Twitter user in Japan has been banned from using the social networking site for making a death threat against a mosquito.
Tweeting abuse would sometimes get you banned from the platform but Twitter’s decision to ban user @nemuismywife has attracted ridicule on social media.
It started on 20 August when he was repeatedly bitten by a mosquito as he was watching TV.
After killing the mosquito, he tweeted: “Where do you get off biting me all over while I’m just trying to relax and watch TV? Die! (Actually you’re already dead).” He added a picture of a dead insect to his tweet.
