    "If there’s one thing Twitter is perfectly suited for, it’s the calling out of bad actors. When someone runs across a scammer, harasser, or troll, they can quickly spread the word. (Sometimes this goes too far, but that’s another entire book.)

    But what can we do when bad actors co-opt Twitter’s anti-harassment tools to protect themselves? One woman found herself banned from Twitter Tuesday after calling attention to a company that appeared to be paying for positive Yelp reviews. Twitter said her tweet broke rules against posting others’ personal information."

    Twitter, bah, humbug. The place to report that sort of thing is the Better Business Bureau site.
