I've been using LinkedIN for a very long time, pretty sure it's my oldest active social media account. In recent months however, my posts have been getting removed. There's nothing in my content that I can see, which violates TOS.

As of this morning, my account has been completely restricted so I can't even log in. When Reaching to them on Twitter, their support team was fast to respond, but maybe as a security protocol- acted like they didn't know what was going on.

I think they're setting a very bad example as a professional networking site to feed into political biasness. I'm writing this review incase my site is shutdown and they close it out before I have a chance to make a copy of my most recent data with them.

Below is a transcript of the conversation I had with LinkedIN via Twitter chat; and my tweets to them, which can be used for LinkedIN support in the future, so they can know how to better deal with false reporting, thus creating a healthier diverse networking environment overall.

Twitter Chat with LinkedIN Help Transcript:

Oh no, that doesn't look good. Can you check to ensure the app is fully updated to the latest version or uninstalling and reinstalling? This typically helps to resolve issues. Circle back if you are still having this issue. -RM

I see your account is restricted, causing this issue. You can appeal your account restriction by following the on screen instructions when logging in via desktop browser. After you follow the prompts in your account, you'll be given a case number and our Safety Team will be in touch by email within 24-72 hours. -RM

Sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. I was unable to locate a case with the email address provided. When you submitted your ID, did you receive a case number? -RM

My Tweets regarding the issue:

Is @LinkedIn down or did they cancel my account? @LinkedInHelp I know I had a few posts flagged for having different #Political views.

I don't think it was #LinkedIN the company though, because that wouldn't make any sense, they'd have to cancel half their users then.

@LinkedIN Can I request info on how my account was restricted?

I'm confident it's not an issue with #LinkedIN itself, I just would like to know who reported my account so I can remove them from my #ProfessionalNetwork, then I'll set it to private so it doesn't keep happening. It's one thing for a #Company to remove posts out of #Political bias or whatever, but to remove the account completely is a whole different story.

@LinkedInMktg @LinkedInNews #SocialMediaNews #LinkedIN

Nothing I post about is violent, or would violate #LinkedIN TOS in anyway I can think of, my @LinkediN is mainly posts of my #Artworks. I'm a very level headed person, I think #SocialMedia companies, especially ones who cater to a #Professional crowd are stepping into dangerous territory playing #Politics in this way.

Desired outcome: I would like my account fully restored; a copy of my most recent data, and if applicable, name's of the people who are reporting my accounts, so I can block them from viewing my page.
