There were rumors in February saying that Twitter had started shadowbanning users. These rumors have been confirmed by a source inside the company.
The source said that Twitter maintains a ‘whitelist’ of favoured Twitter accounts and a ‘blacklist’ of unfavoured accounts.
The accounts on the whitelist are prioritized in search results. This happens even if they’re not the most popular among users.
The accounts on the blacklist have their posts hidden from both search results and other users’ timelines.
Twitter has been deliberately whitelisting and blacklisting users.
The term Shadowbanning is sometimes known as Stealth Banning or Hell Banning.
The method is used by online community managers to block content posted by spammers.
This strategy is used so that the spammer is not alerted to their status since they would create another account. The content they post is hidden from the public.
The best time to use shadowban is when a user never realizes he’s been shadowbanned.
Twitter isn’t targeting spammers only. For weeks, users have been reporting that tweets from populist conservatives, members of the alternative right, cultural libertarians, and other anti-PC dissidents have disappeared from their timelines.
One of the users that have been shadowbanned is Joe Rogan.
Shadowbans have been mainly targeted towards the alt-right, the populist right, and cultural libertarians.
This is because Twitter’s establishment is packed with left-wing advocacy groups, as well as Islamic research centre the Wahid Institute.
Shadowbans have now been confirmed by an inside source. There is therefore little room for doubt that the platform is silencing conservatives.
Some of the users that appear on the shadow ban list include: Richard Spencer, Mark Dice, Alex Jones, Brittany Pettibone, Lew Rockwell, and a host of other “racists,” truth tellers, and conservatives are on the list.
The CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, is destroying his own creation with his stupid leftist garbage. Be aware that this is only a partial list.
The leak is only part 1 of the leak that contains 82 users. There are more shadowbanned users who are yet to be revealed by the leak.
