🚨Attention #Resistance!

After following the Suggestions from @SpockResists below, dont forget to change your Search Settings as well!
Instructions Below👇

Then let's talk about what "Shaddowbanning" is Exactly & how to Recognize it!

2. First off, As you can see here when I search for my Friend @SpockResists under the people tab, @Twitter does not turn up any results -but he defintely exists!

To Solve this Click the Three Dots to the Right of the Search Bar.

3. This display has two settings. Uncheck the "Hide Sensitive Content" Feature.
4.Go back to your Search& Voilà he magically appears again!
Crazy Right?

So what does this Mean Moving Forward?
Is this due to a new feature Twitter Included Monday with their New Rules?

Why are Innocuous #Resistance accts suddenly being hidden as Sensitive Content by @Twitter?
5. The Simple Answer is- there seems to be no true Rhyme or Reason as to who's acct is deemed "Sensitive Content"
Those effected seem Randomly Impacted by this Phenomenon

But, to learn more about what exactly a #Shadowban is anyway Start Here 👇…
6. To sum up, a #Shadowban is when your Tweets become hidden from those who do not follow you, making you rather unsearchable in Hashtag & People Searches
Here's an example of what comes up when I search for myself, (as I am currently Shadowbanned) vs what normally shows up.
7. Yet, users are not given any rationale as to why they have been #Shadowbanned
I never received an email or notif explaining a ToS violation or what "content" was flagged
We are given little recourse to appeal this action while @Twitter is still working on an Appeal Process 😒
8. For those who have followed myself, & others in #Resistance groups a while,

We do not use Profane or Violent Language, or Images & Media that could be construed as such

We are Dedicated to Spreading Accurate, Up to Fate Information & CTAs to help Effect Positive Change
9. But Despite Staying well within Twitter's ToS & Rules as far as we Know,
This article outlines what little control users have over whether their content is marked as "Sensitive", & just how Undefined "Sensitive" Content is on @Twitter

10. Overall, Being Marked as "Sensitive Content" Stifles our voice within the @Twitter community, making it much harder for our Messages to have an Impact & to Engage with new Followers
This has happened to Several Accts Simultaneously within #TheResistance in the last few days
12. @NatCookResists @AlexMunday_2017 @KellieResists @chappie_cat @TrinityResists @Elastigirl2018 @Havok_2018 @chillibeanboy @BuffyResists

If you or anyone you know has also been effected by a #Shadowban and/or labeled "Sensitive Content" in the last few days pls add them below!
13. No one has seen so many #Resistance accounts hit by a #Shadowban or Hidden at one time.
This may be an Unintentional Side Effect of Twitter's new Rules going into effect this Monday -but it throttles ones ability to #Resist Effectively on this platform.
So what can we do?
14. First we can #SpeakOut!

Use the Suggestions here to Contact @TwitterSupport &tell them that Stifling our Voices for Unclear Reasons with Little Recourse Violates our #FreeSpeech!

Our Collective Voices are Vital to a free Society!
H/t @TheSWPrincess…
15. Also for a simpler way to check if you & your friends are #Shadowbanned use this link 👇

Feel free to add people you find that are Shadowbanned in the replies, @Twitter needs to recognize the Scope of this Problem!

H/t @Boba_Cup
16. To end, Social Media & the Internet as a Whole are key Communications Utilities that many of us now take for granted.
At this time in our Country it is Vital for us to Disseminate Truthful Info & Build Bridges as we Continue on the Path to Preserve our #Democracy

Alright, let's break down this NYT Op Ed.

I'm not going to Speculate who wrote it

I do not think #Anonymous is a Hero

The 25th Amendment will not be Invoked against this *POTUS, it's a Distraction

First of all, this Op-Ed baits it's Audience by Stating they are part of "the Resistance" when #Anonymous is nothing of the Sort.

They are COMPLICIT. Grifting on a Failing *Adminstration in Order to have Power over the Policies being set at the White House.
#Anonymous admits this fact later after baiting us using "the Resistance" Title, all while Praising this *Admin's Policies

Most in the Cabinet know *45 is Unhinged & Dangerous, but they're willing to "Thwart" him long enough to get their "MAGA" Agenda Done

How Heroic! 🙄

-A Yellow Bracelet to Identify Parents who are arrested w/ their Children & Prosecuted in Operation Streamline

-A Yellow Star used to Segregate Jews, Watch/Control their Movements & to Prepare for Deportation

I ask you America, how far will we let this go, where is the Line?
1,475 Migrant Children were lost after they were placed with their Sponsors, they are suspected to be in the Hands of Human Traffickers or Forced Laborers.

1500 Children Gone, IN AMERICA, Facing Horrors Unknown.

How much Inhumanity will we Tolerate?
Yet, per this *Admin's Policy we are Separating Children from their Parents/Caregivers to "deter" Illegal Border Crossings, with no real idea where the Children go 💔🤬

The WH is using the term "Animals" to refer to MS-13 & by defacto all Illegal Immigrants -then who's Next?
