Twitmo (Twitter + Gitmo)

"Twitmo” (Twitter + Gitmo) is a name for Twitter jail. People who Twitter concludes have violated its rules face account restrictions. “Gitmo” (the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base) has been used as a jail.

“If Twitmo is darnkess, what is Gitmo?” was posted on Twitter by Daly de Gagné on October 22, 2008. “lost tweets don’t go to twitterheaven - they are whisked away to gitmo - or possibly ‘twitmo’ smile” was posted on Twitter by @theEquilibrium on April 6, 2009. “@angelfrmcanada wanted me to tell you they r In Twitter jail or as I call it, twitmo, like gitmo for Twitter!! smile” was posted on Twitter by CRUZ FOR THE PEOPLE (CA-36) on December 15, 2009. “Twitter jail… Some of us started calling it ‘twitmo’... (think Gitmo) lol” was posted on Twitter by Sue Parzych on August 22, 2011.

@Slow_Grind_239 We call it “Twitmo” after the nickname for the prison on Guatanamo Bay which is “Gitmo.” Folks end up in Twitmo a lot.

@dralice1978 @jwknight66 @GregWHoward Mmm? “Twitmo” is suspension from “Twitter” & #Gitmo is military detention facility in SE Cuba.

Twitmo is Twatter jail, a play on Gitmo. It’s where conservatives always end up, usually for no reason, and it means your account features are limited.

Twitmo is not a physical place it’s digital jail on Twitter but GITMO is a physical jail where bad actors go.

It’s a play on Gitmo = Guantanamo Bay = where the US keeps a bunch of people locked up.
You’re in #Twitmo now because you followed too many people. We’re trying to get your follow ratio to something more even, then your limit should vanish.
