I have been asked for an English thread about Twitter's shadow banning practice. So here it is. An open source test that recognizes various types of shadow bans is available at
Why the uproar now? Because new ban methods appear to be politically biased.
The most famous ban is the conventional shadow ban. It causes your tweets to only be visible to your followers. In this case, retweets will not have any effect and tweets are hidden to non-followers within threads. Non-followers can only reach your tweets by visiting your /+
profile or directly through URLs. The screenshot below illustrates this ban method. Because @_JoeyMcGuire is affected by this type of ban, his tweets are hidden if you did not browse to their respective URL specifically.
