Updated: Scott Stapp begins blocking Alter Bridge and Creed fans on the Creed Twitter account
Update #2: Reports are that fans are now being unblocked by the new moderator so it is likely if you were one of them, in time you will have access again.
Update #1:has released a statement on Twitter regarding the recent blocking issues that have been targeted at and Creed fans. He states that a professional moderator has now been put in place after he took over the account two-three days ago to ensure there are no further issues. He does state that he does NOT support cross promotion in the middle of mentions of rumours, personal attacks and negativity so take of that what you will from the recent blocks.
Original story: In an odd turn of events, any user who publicly supports Alter Bridge will no longer be able to view the official Creed or Scott Stapp Twitter accounts as Scott has begun to block every one that he comes across.
It came to the attention of fans yesterday evening when they could no longer access the official Creed or Scott Stapp Twitter pages and had in fact discovered they had been blocked from viewing it ever again. Fans started to message guitaristwho knew nothing about it at the time but stated that Scott Stapp is the only one with access to the Creed account. Stapp took over the account two days ago when (Marks brother) stepped down from managing it. Mark attempted to put out the fires by stating he has no control over the situation but he appreciates everyone’s support for both of his bands.
Mark later tweeted a fan to say that Stapp wanted the Creed Twitter account to not mention Alter Bridge in any way. This could have been simply handled by asking the members to not talk about the band on the account but instead, Stapp decided it would be smart to block Alter Bridge fans including those who are fans of Creed. Mark Tremonti and Creed fan groups have also been blocked after Stapp took control because they support Alter Bridge also.
The official Creed account now has 45,180 followers at the time of writing this but if Stapp plans to continue blocking Alter Bridge fans then it is very likely that number will continue to decrease over time. Let’s hope he never needs the Creed account to promote his solo albums.

@Romanh821 I have no idea what’s in Stapp’s head. Anyway, fine by me. More time for me to promote AB, Slash/Myles, & Tremonti solo.
Wow, he’s blocking AB fans! Trouble in paradise?
He wants the Creed twitter to not mention AB.
