YouTube terminated its own channel “Citizentube” for multiple or severe violations

It seemed as if the “revolution was dropped for a while” since the channel was stopped by YouTube. Thanks to a Reddit user giltwist who was the find one to find the fate of Citizentube. Those who visited the course could see an alert revealing why the channel might have been eliminated.

“This account has been canceled due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy on spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations,” the alert read.

It is unclear when exactly the channel was eliminated or why but at the time of issuing this article the channel was back online. It must have occurred a few hours ago since early Saturday morning the current was still showing termination message.

With over 128,000 subscribers, the last video on the way was uploaded five years ago. Therefore, it is quite likely the channel was terminated by YouTube a while ago. Remember, the channel hosted events as big as The 2010 Youtube Interview with President Obama.

“Yes, this is tolerably funny. It reminds me of times when Antivirus would randomly detect itself as the threat because of a poorly tested (untested?) database update from the AV vendor themselves,” explained Redditor “Skidmark-steve.”

Going by the standard of what happened with Citizentube, one must agree with this Redditor “Donthugmeimlurking” who said, “Well at least we know they weren’t implying biased in favor of their own services.”
