This evening I tried to send a tweet saying:
I tried to attach this photo –
I received “unknown error” 4 times. Initially I thought it was due to image size, it was ~ 3MB. So I scaled it down to ~500KB and tried again. It still didn’t work.
Eventually, I thought – they’re not blocking it due to my naked toe, are they?
So I tried again, this time cropping out the offending naked, bodily appendage.
Surprise, surprise, it worked!

So, Twitter are blocking naked skin, even disconnected big toes. That’s going a bit overboard, eh Twitter? There is no sense in censoring that.
