One of your pieces on your secondary account:  Medusa by Yissmaryel

Uploaded here without your permission or credit: twitter.com/NixGorgon/status/1…

This user has been causing a lot of gorgon/petrification artists a lot of issues with art theft, may I ask that you please DMCA the picture to help us get the account banned?

help.twitter.com/forms/dmca

I personally had to file four DMCAs to get some of my art taken down, because they refused to comply when asked.

Dunno, I think it is already a fact that she/he doesn't create this art. I mean, the style is different from each piece they uploaded and also they seem to like gorgons... which is pretty much what they upload. 

The art is on the internet, which is pretty much available for everybody, so I don't mind if they upload something. About the credit... oh well, they're not trying to getting profit from it, so that's pretty much like nothing. 

I guess that's the reason why Twitter doesn't give a damn :)

Still thanks for the warn. I've seen art thefts like e-commerces who tried to sell pieces of art and didn't give any profit to their owners, which is something I think it must be banned :D But in this case, it has already happened in different web pages and I cannot trace everything that has been published elsewhere.

Oh, they ARE an art thief.

What you aren't seeing is the number of artists, myself included, who messaged them privately to ask "can you please credit me or take down my art" and they said "no". Not just no, actually, for me she outright blocked me after I DMed her, and she did that to two other friends as well.

It's true that she may have no ill intent, but the fact she ignores requests to give credit and then resorts to insults when artists exercise their right to control who does and doesn't reupload their art, speaks of an attitude similar enough to an art thief that there's no functional difference.

That's the problem with the internet: you can upload whatever you want, but people can download whatever they want. That's how it works. 
It has laws of course, but they don't apply to somebody who has decided to publish something, knowing that everybody is allowed to download it. 
Same happens with wallpapers, and random images from the internet. 

Another different thing is that you have a copyright and they're earning money with the art. 

I've had the same conversation not so long ago, related to "this person clearly writes "I've done this, look at my art"". You can see pretty clear when somebody hasn't created something. You don't need that much brain to know that xD
And the person you showed me CLEARLY hasn't created any of the images. Though if what you're asking for is that Twitter delete those images... you can sit down and relax. Maybe they will do it once, but not more than that. 

And what you're complaining about is human nature. Unless they know and respect that there are other people than themselves in this world, that's what they're gonna do: whatever they want :)
I've dealt with an art thief myself some years ago, know their attitude: human nature. That's all :D
