Twitter: “We don’t shadow ban! Ever” Debunked!

Someone I know comes with proof that Twitter does indeed shadow ban its users.

The term shadow ban is defined as a social media account’s posts not showing up in the feeds of their followers, friends or subscribers.

Twitter says it does not shadow ban, the practice of banning users from a platform without their knowledge.

“Let’s discuss this one upfront. Simply put, we don’t shadow ban! Ever,” said Twitter, in a debunking publication.

A Twitter user received no interactions for two years and when he advertised on Twitter, no single person interacted with his ad.

He reached out to Twitter support for help.  In an email, Twitter declares that the company limited the Twitter account’s visibility (shadow ban).

Ultimately, Twitter’s shadow ban is wronging marketers and advertisers who have spent their money on a platform that is clearly biased.

So it’s not a myth that Twitter is shadow banning its users, there are plenty of people in Twitter who have experienced it and Twitter confirms it in this email.
