Well folks, what a day here on GA.
It seems I broke up my hanging party by exposing that One Hoboken's Communications Director Amanda Palasciano's "retraction request" was tweeted (to me) 4 hours after she had blocked me from viewing her Tweets. That was on September 30, 2013.
Then today's Twitter squawking about "cyber bullies" and vow to "stand up for what you believe in" made it clear I was being set up for another defamation claim. It isn't rocket science. How can GA respond to a retraction request that its author has blocked me from seeing?
Answer: I can't.
After posting today, I mixed it up with Ms. Palasciano again on Twitter. I wanted to know why she tweeted her retraction request AFTER she'd blocked me from seeing her tweets. Note AP's "cyber bullies" entry was before GA's post exposing the defamation 'set-up'. Here are our exchanges.
GA doesn't know what to make of this.
I made a 'discovery' this morning, so have posted the full Twitter exchange with One Hoboken's Communications Director below. Have a look at it later.
As you know, GA got in a Twitter dust-up with 'AP' over her allegations she had been slandered online. AP began the thread at 5:06 PM (see below). GA hopped in at 5:28 PM.
We went back and forth for awhile. I sent a Tweet at 6:02 PM. When I went back around 6:30PM to see her reply, none of her Tweets would display.
On or about 6:30 PM Palasciano had blocked her Twitter feed. It stayed shut for at least the next 2 days (I checked).
Well, GA checked Twitter this morning and was surprised to see AP had re-opened her Twitter feed to the general public. Now I could see her Tweets and not only mine.
What did I discover?
Lo and behold, AP had "continued" our conversation AFTER she had blocked me. She replied nearly 4 hours later; a reply I couldn't possibly read because I had been blocked.
It gets more interesting.
At 6:02 PM, I asked her to "request a retraction".
At 10:18 PM, she answers "I will request a retraction..." knowing she has BLOCKED me from reading it.
It is all below take a look.
But why make such a request on a blocked account? The request was hidden by the requester (AP) to the person it was intended for (GA). (And after noticing I'd been blocked, I invited her to post her retraction request on my blog) It is just plain weird.
Well, I read it today.
As of today October 8th, 2013 GA acknowledges receipt of Ms. Palasciano's September 30, 2013 retraction request, and her retraction has been granted. Please see Former HR Reporter Works for Occhipinti -Update.
Ms. Palasciano, please direct future correspondence to firstname.lastname@example.org.
