Super Whatevr receives ban from Twitter for the most wholesome reason
Odd, right? Well, it appears that the group has received a temporary ban from the platform. Though it wasn't for anything bad, rather, the group received a ban for the most wholesome reason ever: they just wanted to put their "band birthday" on their account.
Luckily, the band's frontman Skyler McKee has a personal account, and he's shared the unfortunate misunderstanding with his followers...with the best Twitter thread we've seen in a while.
"I tried to set my birthday for Super Whatevr on twitter (because that sounded like an adorable thing to do) and it didn’t meet the age requirement so I got locked out... shit." the vocalist wrote in a tweet.
As a result of trying to put their actual “band birthday,” on the page, Twitter issued a ban on the group's official account.
The reason for the lockout? Twitter has a pretty strict policy when it comes to the age of its users, and according to platform's terms of service, users must be at least 13 years of age in order to be able to make an account.
Unfortunately, the little rule means that Super Whatevr didn't meet the age requirement, thus causing the Twitter ban.
This isn't the first time a band has been locked out of their Twitter account for trying to celebrate their birthday. If you recall, back in May, it was reported that the Maine went through the exact same situation.
As it went, the band wanted to celebrate their formation by adding their birthday to the account, only for Twitter to put it on pause because that would mean the group would only be 11-years-old.
Luckily, the Maine got the situation sorted out and they were back on Twitter shortly after receiving the "lifetime" ban. So, we're positive Super Whatevr will too!
