Tim Duncan claims he was booted from his Twitter account ... because he's not the 6'11" NBA star by the same name.
The white Tim tells us he got an email from Twitter Tuesday informing him they were shutting down his account because they believed he was trying to "impersonate" the Black, much taller Tim Duncan.
For some reason Twitter had a change of heart yesterday and his account was re-activated.
We reached out to Twitter and we're still waiting for an explanation ... in 140 characters or less, of course.
Will The Real Tim Duncan Please Tweet?
