Social media has a way of dominating one's life - Kate Henshaw on why she may leave twitter

Actress Kate Henshaw says social media has a way of dominating people's life and she won't allow that happen to her. She shared her recent experience with Twitter management after her account was unjustly suspended. Although the issue has since been resolved, Kate says if it happens again, she will be forced to leave twitter. Below is what she wrote...
"A few days ago, I wanted to send out a tweet but to my surprise found that my account had been suspended. One of the processes required to unsuspend my account was to write an appeal. Appeal? When I had done nothing wrong??! Also one required that I add my phone number.. I tried told me I had not put in a valid phone number.. At this point I gave up. A few friends reached out to me because as far as I was concerned, I am blameless in this whole saga. I decided to leave it to them to decide to restore the account on their own because I was sure nothing wrong was done on my part....definitely!!Anyway, so today I tried again and was sent this message of apology which also included warning me to behave... Na wa..For the love of my fans, my work and brands that I represent I followed the instructions and presto, account back on.If in the future you dont see me on Twitter anymore, it will be that an incident like this has occurred again and I have let it go. Social media has a way of trying to dominate one's life as we advance in technology. There has to be a balance. It will not rule mine. Have a lovely weekend dears. Hugs.
