Classify is a quarter of the core members of the Twitch Mob, a social media group known for posting memes, hilarious videos, and commentary on all the happenings taking place across the internet.

As the most popular member of the Twitch Mob in terms of Twitter followers, many were disappointed when Classify’s account was shut down by the site, with some starting a #FreeClassify hashtag on Twitter in an attempt to reverse the decision.

Why was Classify’s account banned?

According to fellow Twitc Mob member Froste, Twitter had no choice but to shut down his account, which had a massive 105,000 followers, after Sony Music Entertainment claimed one of his tweets had infringed on their copyright.

While Froste stated that “Twitter had helped him a lot in the past with this kind of stuff,” there was nothing the site could do this time, with Froste stating back on May 6 that Classify wouldn’t be able to get his account back.

Classify’s account is reinstated

Following the seemingly-permanent suspension of his original account, Classify reappeared on a new account named @ClassifyMob, with 48,000 followers flocking to his new account in search of content from the social media star.


While many followed Classify to his new account, it was clear he yearned for the reinstation of his original Twitter, tweeting on May 12 that on “nights like this I miss my Twitter account. Hope [you’re] treating yourself to some nice grapes in Twitter heaven.”

Just hours after posting that Tweet though, the original @Classify Twitter account appears to be back, although it appears that a number of his followers have been removed, with the account currently sitting with 76,000.

Classify appears to have lost 30,000 followers during his reinstatement to Twitter.

Many fans of Classify rejoiced at the news his account had been returned, with tweets pouring in to tell the Twitch Mob member that his Twitter was back, while asking what had happened to convince Twitter to reinstate it.


Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau has hinted that he may have had something to do with the return of Classify’s Twitter account, crypitcally tweeting that he wondered “how that happened” when @Classify reappeared on the site, before labelling the move as a “HUGE [WIN].”

Classify himself is still seemingly unaware of the news that his Twitter account is back, as he is currently in Miami for the weekend with his girlfriend. We’ll be sure to update this post with new information and Classify’s reaction as soon as it is available.
