Think Your Account Is Being Shadowbanned On Twitter? Test It Out

Between the latest article on Zero Hedge that showed several conservative journalists who were being shadowbanned and the undercover video from Project Veritas that caught Twitter employees explaining how and why they shadowban accounts on their social media platform, it’s time to really examine what shadowbanning actually is, how you can find out if it’s happening to your Twitter account, and what you need to do to fix it for good.

Let’s start at the beginning. What exactly is a shadowban? While sometimes referred to as comment ghosting, ghost banning, or stealth banning, shadowbanning is the act of blocking a user or their content from an online community so that it will not be obvious to the user themselves. It’s possible that you’re shadowbanned now, but may not be able to tell without doing a shadowban test on your Twitter account. Maybe your engagements seem to be going down, or you’re not getting as many retweets on the content that you put out. It’s also possible that if you’re shadowbanned already, that you’re no longer coming up in users’ feeds and without them manually typing your handle into the search bar, they may not see any of your content at all.
