These tweets come after Logan caused outrage for filming the dead body of a suicide victim while traveling through a forest in Japan that's known as the “suicide forest” because of the high rate of suicides that occur there. It only got worse when a second video of the trip through Japan showed Logan being generally disrespectful, mocking the Japanese people and their culture with wildly inappropriate jokes.
However, since the account is not verified there are questions regarding the authenticity of the Twitter account.
The app's creator Dom himself confirmed that the app does not yet have its own Twitter account and that Logan Paul is not banned from the app.
there are no official twitter accounts for the upcoming app. will have an update about that and some other things soon. (i’m sorry if this clogging your timeline; a few people have asked)— dom hofmann (@dhof) December 19, 2017
