@rethinkedteam is back up!

Aaaand we’re back! Received an email from Twitter a couple hours ago telling us our account had been falsely picked up by a spam cloud and has been restored. Not gonna lie, getting our Twitter account back felt somewhat like reuniting with a beloved pet after a long vacation.

We’re still sharing our makeshift twitter stream (a little out of protest for being silenced for 4 days but mostly because we love the idea). As you’ll see by the links below, our journey through cyberspace took us through dense design thinking territory before veering off to cats and drag queens.

Miss our Twitter Handle? So Do We…


You may have noticed that our twitter handle @rethinkEDteam has been down since this past Friday. Twitter has suspended our account, although after reviewing all of their rules and regulations we can’t seem to figure out why; looks like it just got accidentally picked up in a spam cloud. We’ve emailed Twitter and raised a support ticket several times, but so far to no avail…

Because were obsessive when it comes to the sharing of good ideas and because curating rocks our socks, we’ll be posting, here on the blog, 5-10 links to the most gloriously interesting things we come across each day as a sort of makeshift Twitter until we get ours back.

Until this gets sorted out, you can always connect with us via Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram or email:

We would love to hear your experiences with suspended Twitter accounts, if you’ve had any, and how you went about resolving the issue quickly.

Finally, Twitter, if you’re listening….your customer service system is archaic. Get it rethinked…*
