(STORYFUL/WTXF) - A San Francisco woman says Facebook thinks she’s a terrorist.
On November 17th, Isis Anchalee’s Facebook account was suspended and she has a feeling as to why. The California-based platform engineer turned to her Twitter community, saying that a screenshot of her passport wasn’t enough to verify her identity.
Facebook thinks I'm a terrorist. Apparently sending them a screenshot of my passport is not good enough for them to reopen my account.— Isis Anchalee (@isisAnchalee) November 17, 2015
The Tweet has since surpassed 2,000 retweets, with many followers sharing their support. Among them was Omid Farivar, who identifies himself as a researcher for Facebook in his Twitter bio.
@isisAnchalee Isis, sorry about this. I don't know what happened. I've reported it to the right people and we're working on fixing it.— omid farivar (@bromid) November 17, 2015
According to Anchalee, it took three messages verifying her identity for Facebook to unlock her account.
Third time sending in my information is the charm I guess. I'm back in :) pic.twitter.com/m0demGZitw— Isis Anchalee (@isisAnchalee) November 17, 2015
