Twitter Suspends @fuckeveryword for Tweeting 'Fuck N*****s'

By Tom Pritchard on at

If you've never heard of the Twitter account @fuckeveryword, let me get you up to speed. It's a bot that's been tweeting out the dictionary, and adding the word 'fuck' in front of every single one. It was on track to finish off the dictionary at some point in 2020, though that might be in jeopardy.

Why? Because it got to one of the most 'controversial' words in the English language. Earlier today it got to the n-word, and promptly had its account suspended by Twitter. It's not entirely clear whether that was an automatic thing, or if someone at Twitter deliberately suspended the bot for racist language.

Even though it's a brainless bot that was simply tweeting out words from the dictionary, and n*****s is apparently in the dictionary. Given some of its past tweets (like 'fuck dialectal'), it's pretty clear the bot has a problem with the words themselves rather than whatever they're supposed to represent.

Will the account be back? Possibly. It's not exactly clear at this point. The fact that the account is suspended and not deleted means it'll probably be back at some point, we just don't know when.

If it was a person, rather than an automated algorithm, may I suggest they spend their time a little wiser? Twitter has issues with abuse, racism, and orange wannabe-despots with god complexes, so maybe they should focus their attention on them rather than a bot doing the same thing it's been doing for years. At most Twitter should delete the tweet, if it suddenly decided it has an issue with racism on its platform.
