s8n banned on Twitter days after becoming Rogue’s first “pro Tweeter”

Satan’s very own Twitter account, @s8n, has been suspended from the platform just 48 hours after esports organization Rogue signed them on as a “professional Tweeter”

The popular s8n Twitter account, with over 2.3 million followers to its name, has been taken down as of January 30 for violating the platform’s rules.

It comes days after the popular account was signed by European team Rogue as their first “pro Tweeter,” with Satan himself taking over the organization’s page from January 28.

News of the ban started circulating on January 30 when many users noticed that they could no longer access the account’s page from the Rogue tweet about the takeover.

100 Thieves The Mob member ‘Avalanche’ tweeted out “damn, they took s8n,” along with a screenshot of the song “Feds Did a Sweep” by Future.

Speculation has been rife about why the popular Twitter account was suspended. ‘Mako’ tweeted out a screenshot allegedly from the creator of the account, which seemed to reveal Twitter had disabled the parody account for “violating rules against platform manipulation and spam.”

“You may not use Twitter’s services in a manner intended to artificially amplify or suppress information or engage in behavior that manipulates or disrupts people’s experience on Twitter,” the statement says.

According to SocialBlade, the s8n account has only 7,452 tweets to its name over its 12 years on the platform. However, platform manipulation could also apply to ‘alt accounts’ like the 220,000 follower @s8nspam account, which is enough to get both accounts banned by affiliation.

The wording on the email also makes it appear the account is banned permanently from the platform, so Rogue’s first professional Tweeter might have a hard time doing his new job.

The identity behind the s8n twitter account is allegedly a 26-year-old British man named Michael, as reported in an article by OneZero.

The account has gotten in trouble with Twitter in the past, even getting “shadow banned” from the platform when the algorithm was revised in 2019.

Dexerto has reached out to Twitter and Rogue for comment.

Jake Paul claims he’s hospitalized ahead of Mike Tyson undercard fight

YouTube star Jake Paul shook up the boxing world after being confirmed for the upcoming Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match — but his statement from a recent press conference is sparking rumors that he may not be fit to compete.

The youngest Paul brother boasts a short, if successful, boxing history; after defeating fellow influencer Deji on the undercard of Logan Paul’s August 2018 bout, Jake took his talents to the professional level, taking out YouTuber AnEsonGib in a first round KO in January 2020.

Now, Jake has been confirmed to fight on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. against ex-NBA star Nate Robinson — but some are wondering if he’ll even appear in the ring.

An October 29 press conference saw an unexpected development from Jake’s side, with the YouTuber-turned-boxing pro appearing from what seemed to be a hospital room.

ESPN journalist Ariel Helwani was understandably taken aback by the scenery, and asked Jake where he was — which lead to a surprising, if a bit humorous, answer.

“Uh, I’m just chilling man, I came to the hospital to get a little check up,” he replied.

When asked why he was at the hospital, the YouTuber had an even more astonishing response: “We were having a little morning practice, and my team was afraid that I was turning into Iron Man. I punched a hole through a car.”

Needless to say, it seems like Robinson isn’t worried if his opponent will show up on fight night, claiming that Paul “has to show up” in spite of his purported injury.

However, some fans are claiming that they think Paul has a black eye, or even a broken nose, although his mask admittedly makes it a bit difficult to see if these alleged injuries are for real.

This isn’t the first time Jake has taken a trip to the hospital before a fight, and it may not be his last — but considering his ambition and near-constant training, fans can expect that he will turn up for the show (although whether he will “turn out” is still up in the air).
