Message to INFODIO readers: investigative journalism, which is what this site does, takes lots of time. Time is money. Regular visitors from banks' compliance departments, academia, business intelligence, and law enforcement are encouraged to donate generously to our efforts. Visiting media looking for a quick run down on Venezuela's gargantuan corruption, have the decency to at least cite the source when plagiarising this site's content without attribution (exhibit Reuters here, exhibit Bloomberg here). To all readers, do the right thing, the honest thing: support independent investigative journalism, help us expose rampant corruption.

[UPDATE] Twitter suspends @alekboyd account

For the last few weeks I have been trying to get Twitter to enforce their own guidelines, with respect to a "parody" account, probably run by hacker RaFa Nuñez, called @alekboydoficial. This is an example of the sort of "parody" put out by said account:

Twitter has, thus far, failed to act on the many examples of hatred, racism, homophobic, and violence calls posted in that account, an account that has my name, my picture and "oficial" added to it.

Today, 24 March 2014, Twitter has decided to suspend my account, rather than the "parody" account @alekboydoficial:

I think they suspended the wrong account, but in any case my question to Twitter is: why has my account been suspended? 

UPDATE, 25 March 2014, 07:30 GMT: Twitter has reinstated my account and has suspended RaFa's @alekboydoficial. It was all a momentary confusion.
