Twitter: We Don't Shadowban-Shadowban. We Only Shadowban.
— Open Blogger

They admit to blocking tweets from people's timelines -- even though those people signed up to be a follower of that account, meaning they want to see those tweets.

They claim that this just makes it a "little harder" to see those tweets.

Try a lot harder -- the whole point of following someone is to get their tweets to show up in your timeline, for convenience. Yes, you could just go to their account and read their tweets. But that defeats the whole point of following someone -- following makes the appearance of those tweets automatic from your own home account.

They're doing this, they say, to "reduce complaints," but how can someone who signs up specifically to follow an account have a complaint about seeing the tweets they signed up to see in their timeline?

The truth is, leftist complained about certain accounts and they don't want people who want to read those accounts to be able to read those accounts.

I have a lot of followers, 60,000+, people who specifically chose to follow me. How does blocking my tweets from their accounts help the leftists who are not following me "avoid harm"?

They already are avoiding harm -- most leftist have block-lists that block tens of thousands of people. They don't see my tweets already.

They just don't think anyone else should, either.

And twitter agrees.

And yet Twitter continues to falsely advertise itself as a neutral forum dedicated to the principles of free speech.

They say they've reduced complaints in this way. Sure-- given that leftists are the ones constantly complaining and reporting people to Twitter, for the precise reason to get those people banned (or shadowbanned), then yes, doing what the leftist censors want you to do would "reduce complaints."

At least from the left -- the only people who count.

We on the right are complaining ourselves, but our complaints don't count. Witness this disgraceful double-talk that offends even Glenn Greenwald.

12 As I said yesterday, these social media companies need to be regulated as utilities and be forced to be recognized as public accommodations, just like bakers and wedding photographers are now apparently.

Because we can never build a pervasive, globe spanning alternative, these companies hold hundreds of patents pertaining to this and will simply sue an upstart conservative site out of business or buy them outright.

71 This strategy worked out quite well for FB. Losing more than $100 billion in a day is the stuff of legends. If the far left alienates the right and the middle, they will be left serving about 15-20% of the country. Not a good strategy if you want to hold onto investors.

112 Youtube has pulled similar shit as well. Though they are across the board idiocy, and not just conservative channels, (Though I suspect they have figured out a way to make certain conservative channels just happen to get categorized in ways to prevent their new content from being seen. They've admitted that just because you have subscribed to the channel and clicked the notified bell, it doesn't guarantee that you will get that channels new content. You have to go into your settings for that channel to ensure that it will be there. Why the fuck isn't it the other way around?

114 As I said yesterday (didn't we do this already?), the twatters can be useful.  No need to join, or "follow", etc.  Just find people with info/analysis worth monitoring, and monitor them. 


I don't know any of the Twitter mechanics, but I did find the last few weeks that many of those I monitor were much harder to find using the search function.  A few, even using their "hashtag" (that's the "@XXXXX" thing, right?), were hard to find.  Bizarre.


I assumed this was part of the wider Twitter manipulation/censorship trainwreck.

136 Search Engines do some "shadow-banning" too. In a different way. I don't have a better term. It started after the election. They modified how search results are delivered/displayed. I think based upon what they felt was most relevant...to weed out what they deemed "fake news"...since we obviously can't decide things for ourselves...otherwise HRC Pantsuit would have won. Often you will see this "certain search results were excluded" or something similar, on search results. I noticed it big time when the sources I used to check went from first page to tenth page or no page. Made me kick myself I hadn't saved sources before it occurred...but how was I to know. Anyway, they all have changed results algorithm since election. Based on what they deem appropriate.

The Post was and is a hyper-Left money loser. I'm not sure who owns it now. The News was more moderate, and made a small profit. When the Post ran into serious trouble (maybe 10? 12? years ago), Scripps stepped in and purchased both papers, gutted the News for everything it had, shut it down, and rolled the assets into the Post to keep the Party's mouthpiece afloat. That was when I began to realize the media business is more about power than money.

199 Ahem. Who on here forgot to wash their socks? "A Spirit Airlines flight was diverted after several passengers became sick from an odor that smelled like "dirty socks." Two hundred and twenty passengers on Flight 779 from New York to Fort Lauderdale were detoured to Myrtle Beach, S.C., Thursday so the airline could determine if there was a potential hazmat situation on board, NBC New York reported. Several passengers complained of chest pains and burning throats after breathing an odor that they said smelled like "dirty socks." Fire officials said between seven and 10 were taken to a hospital. Their condition was not known. However, hazmat crews were unable find any evidence of a chemical or other substance that could have caused the symptoms, according to Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue. An investigation is continuing."

205 I think Twitter was invented when somebody took a class in Ruby on Rails, then for the second night homework they wrote a "Teletype App" that lets people send short text msgs to each other. Thus was born the tin-can-and-string-telephone of the 21st century. It was 19 lines of Ruby, and years of tears to follow. The developer had the brilliant idea of getting celebrities like Ashton Kutcher endorse it virally, so it took off. Alas, creeping featuritis set in, as it always does.

212 I'm not defending Twitter but I suspect that they are *required* to throttle by the technology and organization of the site. If you're following, say, 100 feeds that average 4 tweets an hour at some peak use time, that about 6 tweets a minute. It's going to choke servers and probably not be a pleasant experience. So they must throttle in some way. Being a Silicon Valley company, they want to be "smart" about it. Which is to say, they will be dopey about it. Being lefty half-wits, they will throttle by "truth". Which is to say, by politics.

216 Based on what I have heard about gab with their wide open policy and users screen for themselves I'm guessing that if Trump had a staffer replicate his tweets on the gab platform it would take a team of folks initially to block the trash from neoNazis etc and that Tapper et al would screen cap every bit of vitriol that got on to the Trump timeline for a few seconds and use it to smear Trump and all his supporters as racists. So; much as I hate that twitter is getting a large chunk of traffic because of Trump using them I'm going to guess that he is not going to take to take the political beating right now just to help other platform(s?)

Instead, the Obama alum finds himself at the center of an ethics complaint against Steve Dettelbach, alleging that the Democratic candidate for Ohio attorney general abused the law to use gambling as a fundraising tool. Holder got into trouble when he let the Dettelbach campaign raffle off a meet-and-greet opportunity. A raffle ticket for as little as $5 could win Obama fans an opportunity to meet with the former U.S. attorney general. - The Obama regime. The gift that keeps on giving.

245 Twitter's basis is clear and pervasive.
1. First they easily verify posters who are left/far left across business,politics & media, yet make it all but impossible for non libs.2. Twitter consistently re-tweets anti-Trump and leftist messages from non-political types, while it ignores their subject matter expert tweets.3. Twitter will quickly remove any content that the leftist infested Trust&Safety and/or leftist users find offensive. Content that contains calls for violence, hatred and character assassination remain posted for weeks when directed at non liberals. The single best example has been the terrible abuse directed at Dana Loesch, that was left untouched.4. Twitter suppresses whole subjects, word pairs and associations deemed offensive to the far left.

299 "we" made a social contract with Twitter ... they promised to be neutral and provide a forum.

agreed ... so we let them have traffic and our personal dialogues, and they sold it for ads whatever.  Now after establishing their dominance in this genre, they broke the contract, in a malicious subversive way to boot.

Just leaving isn't enough for us ... we invested time and privacy, they took it to pocket billions.  Restitution, or really, surrender the platform to a steward that WILL fulfill the contract.  Publicly traded company ... fire the bad men.

Because though they are dipshit it is their absolute right to use a communication platform enjoyed by others.
Just like they can pick up their telephones and call any random number in the phone book and attempt to communicate.
That's why these companies need to be brought under the public utility fold.

The obvious reasons they do this are A) so they don't get complaints, B) so they don't have to justify WHY they banned someone, and C) so nobody can see who's banned and who isn't, so that the bias and sheer volume of manipulation can't be ascertained.

379 Is shadowban the reason I never see any tweets from Ace?

380 It's as good as banning.  I pop in these days just to see some people's tweets I follow.   Twitter used to be like a little cocktail party.  Now its a bit more like stand up with hecklers and you can't even talk to your own pals unless you go through a locked service gate.

I hate twitter now and hope they die.
