If you do a search of shadow banning, you’ll find sites that claim to help you identify whether Twitter or Instagram has shadow banned your account. The basic idea of shadow banning is to spoof the shadow-banned user into believing their public posts are visible to all while in reality the posts are visible only to the user or in some cases to the users’ followers.
Wikipedia’s definition of shadow banning is:
“Shadow banning (also called stealth banning, ghost banning or comment ghosting) is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned.”
Phi Beta Iota: This is the best summary of the blatantly illegal but as yet uncontested misbehavior of #GoogleGestapo (Amazon, Facebook, Google, MeetUp, Twitter, YouTube, and others). There is an urgent need for a totally new beginning that enables absolute free speech and eradicates discrimination in the cyber-world.
