Twitter’s assault on conservative’s free speech continues, and it’s hit me.
The left continues to tell conservatives to ”stop whining” and that its “completely ridiculous” to think we’re being censored on social media platforms.
-What is shadow banning?
Shadow banning is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned. – via Wikipedia
When shadow banning first became a known issue, we had no real proof to our claims, but we knew it was happening. It’s pretty easy to see. Just take a look at the political commentators being banned and who isn’t. The long list includes people like Alex Jones, Gavin McGinnes, Roger Stone, Milo Yiannopoulis, Tommy Robinson and that’s just to name a few. But those are outright bans. Twitter is banning hundred of thousands of Conservatives by filtering their tweets and preventing users from seeing them without anyone knowing. They call it a “quality filter”. This feature is enabled on users accounts by default. Twitter says this is to “make the experience better” for all users.
Thankfully, now we have proof of their misconduct. A website called “ShadowBan.eu” tells you if your Twitter account is shadow banned.
I’ve been running my username through their system every so often to check if I’ve been shadow banned. When I ran it today, it shows I’m on the quality filter block. Meaning, a huge majority of users will not see my tweets because Twitter feels they’re not of good enough quality.
@jack why have I been shadow banned? @Twitter @TwitterSupport @realDonaldTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr
Still don’t believe that Twitter is banning conservatives? Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe released a video earlier this year that caught Twitter higher-ups on hidden camera talking about banning political talk they don’t like.
I have not violated any of Twitter’s terms of service. And that’s apparent as I haven’t been fully banned. If someone violates the rules, they wouldn’t secretly filter the person’s tweets. They’d remove them from the platform.
President Trump has also weighed in on this issue recently. Saying “they’re trying to silence a large part of this country”.
