“Twitter “SHADOW BANNING” prominent Republicans. Not good. We will look into this discriminatory and illegal practice at once! Many complaints.”
A shadow ban is when someone makes a post it does not show up on their followers feed. So, the individual who posted doesn’t even know they are being blocked. People who have been shadow banned are Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel, Donald Trump Jr.’s spokesman, Republican Congressmen include Mark Meadows (NC), Jim Jordan (OH), Matt Gaetz (FL), Ryan Saavedra, Chuck Ross, Jordan Schachtel, Arthur Schwartz, and Brigitte Gabriel.
“Democrats are not being ‘shadow banned’ in the same way,” VICE reported.
“As we have said before, we do not ‘shadowban,” Twitter told CNBC. “We are aware that some accounts are not automatically populating in our search box, and shipping a change to address this.
“To be clear, our behavioral ranking doesn’t make judgments based on political views or the substance of Tweets.”
A Twitter Employee was caught on video 6 months ago admitting to Shadow banning conservatives. In particular Trump supporters and Christians.
After President Trump put Twitter on notice their stock dropped 1%.
