They have been carpet bombing everything and even got an official artist caught in the crossfire.

Don't worry, it's twitter only. All because new chapter leaks on twitter Afaik, filtered memes are fine.

Seems like someone was drinking too much while working, or just a bot gone out of whack.

My money is on an overzelous bot.
Reminds me of the "audio copyright detecting program" trouble youtubers had (some still have), it would "detect" and strike videos, just because of 1-3 nodes, claiming that it was "stolen from a music track".
I heard of one youtuber, who had an intro, with music and artwork that he had made himself, and the program flagged all his videos, EVERY SINGLE ONE, because less than 0.5 seconds sounded like a song.

I've heard that some Twitter users get stiked my the bot, because of their profile pictures, even though they go under fair use.
I know you can't find and strike everthing manually, but having an over sensitive bot do it, is more harm than good, they could have a bot FIND the pictures in question and then manually say "yes or no".

So far, the list of strikes are targeting the following series: One Piece, Bleach, Jujustu Kaisen, Haikyuu!!, Food Wars, Dr Stone, Saiki K, Demon Slayer, Death Note, Kuroko’s Basketball, Boku no Hero Academia, Naruto, Boruto, Dragon Ball, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Black Clover.
Of course, this is just the list that’s being given and many other titles not listed could also be targeted.

I'm surprised One Punch Man isn't expressly listed among those title, though as stated, just because it's not in the itemized list doesn't mean it's bot being targeted.

EDIT: it has 2 tweets btw, and the second will have a tldr
