    The Maine’s Twitter account has been banned after the band set the birthday to the date of the band’s formation, which makes it not 13 years old and therefore against the site’s policy.

    Yo @twitter you asked for a birthdate for our bands twitter account (@themaine) and now we’re banned for life? Can we not do that please? Also why do you need that info? Y’all bein sneaky over there can I get a human adult on the line

    Twitter would benefit from an IG-style business account option

  8. Lmao crazy how this happens to basically one of the only bands of their caliber that’s solely responsible for their own promotion

    Well now when you put it this way it's not so funny to me anymore (it's still funny if it gets straightened out quickly though)

  11. Oh yeah, I’m sure it will get sorted out! No way Twitter doesn’t have all of that information backed up to restore in off-chance situations like this

    This very quickly went from, “oh no, what did they do?” to laughing so hard.

    So many bands just let us down, but this is great.

    In the current climate, this had me a little terrified. Then it turned into awesomeness. I work on kid's entertainment products so this will probably become a story around the office.

    Kinda wondering why Twitter doesn't have a different format for brands / companies on twitters separate from the sign up process for an individual users.
