I can’t follow @JoeManganiello on Twitter… WHY?!

I don’t feel like writing a poem right now. I feel like venting just a tiny bit about something that ultimately means nothing but nonetheless bothers the hell out of me.

I can’t follow Joe Manganiello on Twitter.

me, unhappy

I’m not exactly sure why. If you go through my Twitter feed, you’d hardly call it confrontational or stalker-ish. In fact, I don’t mention Joe that often. He fell off of my Follow Friday list awhile back and since True Blood isn’t on right now, I don’t just randomly mention him. The last time I remember mentioning him was in regards to still liking him but now Laura Vandervoort is my favorite werewolf (she’s the main gal on Bitten).

I was going to mention him again today (again in relation to the whole werewolf thing) but when I started typing his Twitter name, it didn’t automatically come up as it should if I’m following him. Curious, I checked out his Twitter URL and found that I was not following him. WTH? So of course I clicked the “follow” link and got this:

“You have been blocked from following this account by the request of this user”

I’m not going to lie to you, I felt a little gut punched when I read that. I’m a good fangirl, I don’t stalk unnecessarily, I don’t badmouth people on Twitter, I’m supportive. So what in the world did I do to get blocked from following Joe Manganiello?! Did I say some crazy thing that actually caught his attention and he was so disgusted/put off/horrified that he just had to make sure to never see my Twitter name again? If so, what the hell did I say?!

I can’t ask him (or the account) because if I’m blocked from following him I’m guessing anything I post to him would go unseen. And if my Twitter friends post to him but mention me too, can he see it? So is it a glitch perhaps? I’ve checked on a few of the other people I follow and everything looks okay. I suppose if I didn’t care in the slightest about Joe, then I’d just shrug this off and be done with it. But I do like him and I like being able to follow his tweets but for some reason I cannot fathom, I’ve been blocked.

In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t matter. I know this. And if suddenly I’m no longer blocked (because you know I’m going to keep checking for awhile), I don’t even know if I want to follow him again without explanation. And I’m never going to get it. And I’ll probably be forever banned.

It sucks.

If I ever meet him, I’ll ask him why he blocked me. If it’s his “people” then I’d definitely like to know what the hell I supposedly did to get blocked. If it was a deliberate act of blocking, then that’s just a bunch of crap. And if it’s just a glitch, I hope it rights itself soon. Otherwise, I will think it was deliberate on someone’s part…
