The buzz continues to build for the Twitter Gulag Defense Network, a grassroots project launched last weekend by Twitter user Todd Kincannon. Using the hashtag #TGDN, the project connects conservative activists and helps Twitter users combat the abusive flag-spam tactics used by some leftists to silence conservative voices.
#TGDN has been trending off and on since Saturday, Jan. 5, and more than 4,000 happy warriors have joined the network. This morning, Kincannon reached out to #TGDN members with his suggestions for staying out of the dreaded Twitter Gulag. His ideas include methods to thwart flag-spam trolls and tips to avoid triggering Twitter’s automatic suspension algorithms.
Actor Adam Baldwin and others hoped that Kincannon would compile his tips into a single post.
No worries. We’re givers. Ask and you shall receive!
Algorithms. RT @AdamLozo This is an interesting tip. Why does the @ at the beginning of a tweet make us more vulnerable to the Gulag?
Many of Kincannon’s followers were grateful for the advice.
Not for nothing people but I have watched @ToddKincannon shred people & not get gulaged. Im gladly taking any tips that will keep me out.

But at least one was skeptical:
Kincannon has a message regarding any naysayers out there.
