Boom. It’s me.
I wanted to give you all an update, since I know there have been many questions. Today I was notified by Twitter that my account @tesla_truth has been permanently suspended. I will not be allowed to use Twitter any longer, or create any new accounts. Here is the notification from Twitter at 6:22 PM today citing “multiple or repeat violations of the rules”
What were the violations?
Since my @tesla_truth Twitter account was focused on exposing a massive social media disinformation campaign orchestrated against Tesla, as well as posting real information about Tesla products, Tesla short sellers did not like me very much. A lot of untrue information about me, and the reasons why I was suspended are being spread and will continue to be spread. Please don’t believe unsubstantiated claims about me. Here is the real info on how $TSLAQ and Aaron Greenspan were able to get my account taken down.
Suspension #1: Immediately After Opening
I started the @tesla_truth Twitter handle on November 27, 2018 to refute the disinformation campaign orchestrated by a group of Tesla short sellers who called themselves “$TSLAQ”, noting their intent to bankrupt the company in order to make money betting against the stock.
After two days of tweeting, my account was suspended on the 29th of November 2018. I sent in an appeal, and one day later it was unsuspended on November 30 2018.
Suspension #2: Impersonation
The display name on my @tesla_truth account was “Steve Jobs”. The subject of the account was the importance of innovation, and as a funny sort of parody of the anonymous swarms of accounts posting negative information about Tesla, I thought it would be funny to post in character as Steve Jobs back from the dead to explain Tesla’s technology. I did not closely review the rules around parody accounts and $TSLAQ was able to have me suspended for impersonating Steve Jobs.
On July 3rd, I was notified that my account was permanently deleted and would not be restored for violating the rules against impersonation. This report was likely submitted by Aaron Greenspan.
After writing an appeal begging for my account back and explaining that it was a parody and not meant to deceive, Twitter allowed me to have my account back as long as I changed the name to “Steve Jobs’ Ghost” and changed the bio.
Suspension #3: Copyright on Aaron Greenspan’s Purple Shirt
Since January 2019, I have been stalked and harassed by a deranged Tesla short seller named Aaron Greenspan. At one point I tweeted a picture of Aaron that is shown many places on the internet, including in this blog post.
Aaron sent a Digital Millennium Copyright Act takedown notice to Twitter demanding that they remove my profile header image, which was the top portion of the picture (showing the top of his head). I thought it was so funny that Aaron would bother to send a DMCA takedown notice that I posted two screenshots showing my profile before and after the copyright removal. I didn’t think a screenshot of the old violation constituted copyright infringement, but Aaron waited until the day before Tesla earnings and sent an email to Twitter asking them to remove both my @tesla_truth and personal accounts for repeated copyright violations. Twitter agreed, and suspended my account. I was able to get it back about 1 day later.
Suspension #4: Spam + Permanent Ban
One day after getting my account back for the copyright violation, I received a notice that my personal account and @tesla_truth account had been permanently banned due to “Spam”. The appeal email from Twitter said this was connected to the copyright case, so it seems clear that Aaron Greenspan submitted this complaint. It’s unclear what exactly the violation of the spam policy was, but things like posting from a different account while you’re suspended could fall under this policy. I appealed the suspension, but 7 days later (today) Twitter told me that after reviewing my appeal my account would not be restored. I will not be able to create a new account either.
Don’t worry about it. Getting off Twitter is actually kind of nice. The shorts are doomed either way, and you can subscribe to this blog if you still want to hear from me. There’s an email signup on the bottom of the page. And who knows, maybe Twitter will change their mind when they find out more about the situation
It’s clear that the Tesla short sellers have put a lot of effort into making sure you can’t hear from me. But their thesis is falling apart, and their fraud will be exposed. I’ll have a lot more to say later but for now I’ll be relaxing and enjoying my weekend. I just wanted to give you all an update on what happened now that I know that I am permanently banned from Twitter forever. Sad how the platform has been abused to become a propaganda tool for Tesla shorts.
I’ll miss you guys all a lot! The 11 months we had together on that account were great. Never forget what the Tesla short sellers did! If they can use Twitter to try and destroy Tesla, others will use Twitter to destroy America and destroy democracy.
If you are a journalist who would like to know more, or is researching the $TSLAQ social media disinformation campaign, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Please continue your content on facebook, Instagram, and or YouTube. We need all the help we can fighting the haters and myths and lies
Man we missed you and hope that you will come back soon! Seems that no one else pisses those fuckers off like you 😉 you have a talent come back under some other name .. anyway you’ve been missed!
Please VLOG on Youtube, that way you can also make some $ while supporting the cause
I am so sorry to hear this. I am thinking to sign up on your newsletter but can’t find the sign up box. Thanks.
Well this is disappointing. Your posts were one of the best reasons I use Twitter. Stay true, friend.
Me neither!!! Where is it?
I had a feeling this would happen–I tried to like your tweet about TeslaQ & Gitmo, and immediately your feed blanked out. Notified as many of your Twitter fans as I could (and Elon), but to no avail.
Would love to read your take on the PSA-FCA merger–kicks off the ICE merge-a-thon, for sure.
I cannot find the signup box either. Must be some kind of virus going round…
Twitter has suspended the wrong account.the shorties are the ones that should be suspended not you
I agree 😂
I miss you lots ❤
You will be greatly missed.
Thanks for the update. I hope you get your account back soon.
I already miss your tweets 🙁 Twitter just isn’t the same
Hoping for your comeback!
Anything you want posted I’ll do it with ~Steve Jobs is Dead~ at the end. Keep up the fight!!
Look forward to have you in the team again
Yo. Just comment in this thread with “#TweetMe” preceding and I’ll post a screenshot of it on Twitter.
As long as you don’t send Twitter a copyright infringement complaint for using a screenshot from your site😂🤣👍
You have fought hard for spreading the truth. I’ve learned so much from you. I’m so bummed that you are dead dead. TSLAQ see you as the biggest threat for their propaganda. We’re not losing hope. We will see you again on Twitter. Stay strong! See you later on twitter.
Awww thanks Caroline! 😁 Don’t worry, I’m sure it will all work out for the best. Either way, the shorts are toast.
Don’t worry about it ghost. The $TSLAQ #DumDums can’t stop the truth 🤘🤘
They can try, and they will, because they love to fail, and fail hard. 🙂
We’ve got this, thanks Omar!
That blows 👎… sorry brother
We can set up a GoFundMe and get you a new phone and you can come back as Elvis or something?
I may start at $TWTRQ in your honor
Rest In Peace Steve
Will miss you, Please start a You Tube venture, Tesla community will rally behind you.
We miss you Buddy! Don’t let these Short f**** stop you from providing FACTS!! I’ll be subscribed to this Site!
Crap , I was just getting use to checking your feed each & every day.
Hang tough & those that miss you are carrying the torch
Maybe start a online /phone discussion weekly. Love to hear from you.
My email’s [email protected]
Let’s tell a story
We got your back brother!
Hang in there friend.
Hang in there, friend.
Bro – missing you!!
Missing you bro!!
Really enjoyed your tweets and analysis. Look forward to more discussion in the future.
Hey man, mikepc here, you and Elon are really the only reason I stayed on twitter. I am 100% dedicated to getting you back your account.
In the mean time, would you mind helping me with something? If you can email me at [email protected] and I will give you more details.
Sorry about all this. You will be missed. Where can we keep up with you? What can we do to help?
They could not beat you on facts and content, so they attacked your activities spreading Truth_about_Tesla abusing the process. This by bullies who actively block seeing all publications that do not 100% agree with their selfish agenda.
Sounds familiar ?
Sign of the times, but we ’the people’ will also win this one.
How do they enforce you being banned from Twitter? I.e. what’s to stop you from using a completely new e-mail, Twitter handle, etc? If they log IP address then use a VPN, etc. it seems to me this “perma-ban” would be difficult to enforce.
i just want to respect their rules rather than try and hide. if they allowed me to come back officially — either with tesla truth or my personal account — i’d be very happy
Thanks for the blog and update on what happened.
Don’t let TSLAQ get you down. We are strongest together. There are more of us than them, and we’re fighting from the heart for all the right things, especially the truth.
Please let me know how we can help you most effectively. I look forward to staying in touch with you on here and other platforms you’re able to use.
Keep posting on Instagram, I’ll screenshoot your IG posts and tweet the hell out of them. You leave an indelible footprint. Thanks
Tragic, but it was just a matter of time. People that are in the spotlight can be attacked from so many angles. If you ever come back to twitter just be silent about who you really are. Don’t post any information about it here or anywhere public. There’s always a chance that shortsellers are keeping an eye on you and use that information against you. Lets learn from these mistakes and not repeat them.
Is there a way to send a petition to twitter and get 100s of your fans to sign it?
You’re a fucking loser omar
This diminishes my enjoyment of twitter enormously. Hope you get back and they overturn this clearly bad decision.
Wise man u are. Fight and win. Be ferocious and savage. Vengeance is best served cold.
Ban their accounts. Create a new one just under a different name @tesla_truth001
I was really enjoying Twitter because of you. I’m bummed. You were my go to Tesla informer.
Complete bullshit. The amount of shit happening on Twitter and they perma-ban you for some troll’s dubious claim?!
Keep on destroying the shorts. Stay strong brutha!
I’ll miss you a lot
Thank you for all your hard work. Happy to follow you here.
Super sad 🙁
This is stupid. It’s a shame you got banned, I really enjoyed everything from your Twitter account. Have you considered doing anything on YouTube, i would watch anything you had to say man, for real.
Really miss your Twitter posts. Is there somewhere we can write in to Twitter to make them actually look at your account with a bit of intelligence? And would Reddit be a decent substitute for the time being or no?
Thanks so much for all you did and all your fighting!

So sad, we will miss you.
It’s so disappointing to see the Tesla shorts manipulate Twitter Mgmt in such a way it would silence a voice that can simply be classified as a fact checker and supporter of the Tesla company.
I would have hoped that Twitter’s pursuit of free and open speech principles would have prevailed in the end and avoided this type of ban.
The principles that Twitter is trying to live up to and that are so clearly being violated with this account ban would be very clear to everybody or any rational person taking an objective view.
You’ll be missed ‘Ghost’ and the rest of us will need to step it up to keep the truth from being drowned out!
Tesla needs people like you. Hope you’ll make a decision to come back. Don’t give the short seller the satisfaction of removing you; you’re giving them a big victory, and they’ll now pursue another supporter.
unfortunately coming back is not my choice
Glad to continue keeping up with you Steve!
$TESLAQ would not have gone after you if you weren’t a genuine threat to their mission. Thank you for all your posts. I look forward to hearing more from you in whatever medium that may be!
Steve, sad to see you gone. So much for “free speech” in fact so much for the truth (no reference to your handle). That is the problem with Twitter… no proper policing and fact checking. In the end they just won a small battle but we will win the war. Tesla is here to stay and will crush the shorts to dust. Thank you for all the great posts and keep on fighting.
Sad day. Stay focused. Your content is key and there will always be people that can amplify. I for one. I find the behavior of the Q guys to be abhorrent and SEC enforcement worthy. They should be jailed for manipulation. I hope they are on the run but fear that isn’t the case. We are still early in the transition. Do us all a favor and keep up the good fight.
You have talent in communication and you are very dedicated. You were the LED of hope for many of us. Thanks.
Use a different email address and start a new account. Obviously you are an important contributor so I hope to hear more.
Sorry to hear this, as you were one of the greatest voices on Twitter against the TESLAQ conspiracy. Hopefully Twitter will see the error of their ways and reinstate you, but even if they don’t, know that your work had an impact and there are many others carrying on the fight. And as you point out, the shorts are toast now anyway, so all this will really do in the end is make the flames on their flame-out a little easier for everyone to see!
wow! thanks for the update; I can’t believe all this took place. We are supporting you.
Keep fighting the good fight, just a matter of time. TSLAQ is thinning by the day
Your posts were my favorites. I really miss them. Hope to see more of you.
They “Banned” the wrong person. The TESLA faithful will rise up and crush the shorts! Keep spreading the truth. Side note: Took my wife’s Audi in for a recall repair today(Hmm). Told Audi service I have a TESLA and they proceeded to tell me how the eTron was better.. Then I asked the range…They all got very quite.🙂
So sad to not see your twitter posts anymore. But happy to continue following you here, where you can continue the fight.
Also, wanted to make sure you get my Tesla #chasingsunsets calendar. Please send me an email.
Three things are not long hidden:
1) the sun
2) the moon
3) the truth
Welcome back – I can’t say anything that hasn’t already been said in the comments. Can Twitter stop us from sharing links to this blog?
PS I’m still holding it the wrong way
Die on Sir Ghost! You sparked a fire and it will continue.
Uffffff -.- 🙁
Please post our updates here & we can copy & paste them. Steve Jobs Ghost can live on with all of us.
Many of are continuing your effort on Twitter, I notified Elon about portraying his welcoming hedgehog and have continued to play the part, can you still see twitter activity? Anyways, Dexter here, actually it’s Paul, and we miss ya man. Oh I bought a Model 3 2 days ago!!! I will let you log in through my twitter and send any messages you need to to anyone let me know
Plan: update blog every day. Twitter Tesla fans post link to blog every day. Your messages and truth love on in twitter!
This happened to a great account known as Spicey Files, a legal aide who pulled and interpreted cases related to Trump Admin. She had a huge target on her back. Claud Taylor hosted her on his blog, tweeted links. Now, she is back as a different account. Just create more emails, it is what the bots do and apparently Jack doesn’t give a shit about that. Better, Elon should start a new Twitter with real verification. It can’t be rocket science.
Wow. I am just at a loss for words. AG is most devious. He will not prevail. Karma is a B! Glad you created a blog, hopefully we will continue spreading the “good word” in your Twitter absence. It;s not the same without you! Be well and I hope to see you back on Twitter when justice is done!
This is so irritating! I’m sorry Twitter did this to you instead of those who harassed you and your family. Keep fighting!
Keep up the good work. Hopefully see you back on twitter soon!
Love the ghost. I despise shorts. Check my site, byplug.com. I could echo your blog with a link …. more than happy to do so…
You did amazing work! It was so much fun seeing you destroy their lies and half-truth. This gives us a good idea of what Elon Musk is up against every single day. No wonder he would get upset once in a while.
I’m subscribing to this blog so I can follow your exploits. Looking forward to what you See are up to next. Long live Elon & (the ghost of) Steve Jobs!
Make sure you get back on somehow. In the meantime, I’ve been taking over the ridicule of TSLAQ and I’m probably due a suspension any day now.
Dexter here your loyal hedgehog… left one post for you here but don’t see it… we’re continuing your fight, repost news that’s not correct, I officially applied with Elon to be the official welcoming personality on twitter for Tesla, haven’t heard back lol can you get on wife’s account and check @Tesla_Truth links?? Anyways I’m here for ya, [email protected]
Oh I forgot to tell you we ordered a red Model 3 in time to save the $$$ and ordering solar today!! Miss you Ghost, ANY STORIES you want me to break or expose just text me
Hi Omar glad to hear you is ok man! You have sparked an uprising on Twitter and an army of Ghosts man 😀 Hope to hear from you soon. And just gonna add one more thing: Aliens 👽
Elon could just buy Twitter at this point and make them all look like assess… I don’t FB, but where else can people connect with you? Please post the links boss
Thanks for the update! Subscribing for more.
Funny how Elon made his comment about the good of Twitter right after this. Maybe he’s protesting?
I admit that I have committed tax fraud and securities fraud
Will miss you ghost. Hope you will return!
Good luck Omar, I’ll follow you here. Elon should do the same, and even start his own social media site. Fuck Twitter and their $TSLAQ support. What a ridiculous volley you’ve had with this social media site.
Yeah, Twitter has turned into Facebook. Very disappointing.
You’re a good dude, don’t stop fighting the good fight.
Long live Elon! Death to Twits!
I’ve been super busy today, keeping the GHOST alive, I call you, the “Wise One” check it boss… https://twitter.com/HogDexter/status/1190446609663975425
This is the body of the post here… https://twitter.com/LateDayMickMan/status/1190437816154624001
I’m glad you’re back! I hope one day Aaron will go to prison for the crimes he has committed. The worst is yet to come for him on Twitter.
oh he will, don’t worry 😁
That’s sad! Elon went offline today and he posted against twitter.
Sad. Gonna text Jack that this isn’t right.
It’s all about money and ego in the end. 🙁
Make a Facebook page. Have somebody else setup a cross posting acct.
Setup a Facebook and have somebody else cross post it
Sad story but happy to see you are fine!

When most needed ?🤪
Stay strong brother, truth will always prevail , and Tesla”s truth of a sustainable future will never be able to be silenced by arrogant unimaginative soon to be burnt to bankruptcy unethical short sellers, TeslaQ.
