Soon after the esports company Rogue acquired Satan (@s8n) as their account’s “professional Tweeter”, the original account @s8n was suspended by Twitter.

With a follower count north of two million, Satan was a popular account in esports and gaming circles.

“Welcome to Hell! Please say hello to our first Rogue Pro Tweeter @s8n. It only cost us our soul to get him onboard. #GoRogue,” wrote the company after signing up Satan to take over their account from 28th January onwards.

Two days later, on January 30th, users found that they could no longer access Satan’s tweets as Twitter has suspended the account stating that it violated the platform’s rules.

It is worth noting that Satan’s account was previously suspected of being shadowbanned back in 2019 when Twitter underwent algorithm-related changes.

Satan’s account suspension has attracted widespread attention with several users speculating reasons why Twitter must have done so.

100 Thieves The Mob member Avalanche tweeted saying, “damn they took s8n” while adding the image of the song: Feds Did a Sweep by Future.

Another popular Twitter personality Mako tweeted a screenshot which may have been taken from Satan himself, as it explains the grounds on which the account was suspended.

“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,” said the notice by Twitter which is allegedly displayed to Satan.

It’s against Twitter’s rules for an account itself to be sold to another entity or to be operated on behalf of another company without being disclosed, and some have speculated that this could be the reason for the ban.

By the looks of it, the suspension seems to be a permanent one, meaning that Rogue’s first-ever “pro-Tweeter” has landed himself in troubled waters.
