A reportage revealed some contradictions in the accusations of Zoe Quinn against Alec Holowka, the developer who committed suicide a few days ago.
The Canadian site The Post Millenial has published a long report that highlights some apparent contradictions of the accusations of Zoe Quinn to the developer Alec Holowka, who committed suicide at the end of August with modalities still to be clarified.
The report is based on some old Quinn Tweets, written at the time when he had a relationship with Holowka. The Post Millennial claims to have received pictures of Quinn tweets from a source with access to the developer’s closed account. Others were obtained from some videos on YouTube, made by users who had previously saved them when the account was still open.
According to what can be deduced from the messages of that time, Quinn moved from Holowka to Winnipeg at the end of March 2012 / beginning of April 2012.
In her public accusation, Quinn states that she was segregated in Holowka’s house, which would have isolated her from the world external. From the many tweets published by the woman, however, another story is derived, namely that not only could she go out, but also that she communicated with other people and visited different places in the city. In addition, along with Holowka, he organized a meeting between indie developers called Winnipeg , which was attended by 38 other developers, many of whom communicated with her via Twitter.
The couple was also hosted by a podcast, dating back to April 14 of that year, called Indie Function. Quinn and Holowka talked about their plans, their daily lives and how they met. Quinn publicly paid good words for Holowka and talked about how he supported the cause of having more women in the industry. The Post Millenial has also published excerpts from the podcast that demonstrate what has been said.
Still talking about her life with Holowka in the podcast, Quinn describes it as an ideal condition: “My life now: I wake up, I dedicate myself to a game I cherish, and I fall asleep exhausted.”
Another contradiction of Quinn’s words that emerged from the reading of his tweets concerns the project It’s Not Okay, Cupid. According to his accusations, Holowka would have taken complete control, but reading the tweets shows that Quinn was actively engaged in its development.
The same goes for the return home: the woman accused Holowka of not having paid her the return ticket to Toronto as promised to her before leaving and of having to contact her roommate at the last minute to get the sum that was necessary, but according to the tweets, Quinn knew well in advance when she would be back, that is with more than ten days, since as early as April 24 she invited her acquaintances to meet her in Montreal on May 5, where she would come to return to Toronto. Even his sudden escape would be doubtful, since on May 4, a few hours before departure, he wrote in a tweet that he was working with Holowka on It’s Not Okay, Cupid.
Finally, after returning home, Quinn continued to work with Holowka in It’s Not Okay, Cupid and the two exchanged friendly messages on Twitter until May 10, 2012.
The Post Millenial concludes that tweets do not prove that Zoe Quinn has not suffered violence during the visit, but only that many of his words are denied by his own tweets.
