Weird New Shadowban at Twitter

UPDATED 6-05-2016: see update at end of post.


There was a long back and forth between myself and a few others on religion on Twitter a day or so ago. We all were in agreement pretty much and certainly no one had any aggressive comments to make. I did mention the Roman Catholic Church, but not in a disparaging way as I am one myself.

Shortly after the conversation Twitter decided to ban me with their new version of a #shadowban. This one does not match all the descriptions you will get around the web so I decided to make this post to document the newest underhanded Twitter aggression which is aimed at libertarians and conservatives mainly.

I had some problems with being locked out of my account due to “automated like activity” or something like that on two occasions. That started around the time of the #FreeMIlo tweets but I was certainly not the only one posting about Milo. What really happened was the Twitter progressives just hate all the anti-Clinton tweets and re-tweets.

So, here is a description of what they have done. As far as I can tell they have come up with a new shadowban method.  At this time I can read my time line in a normal fashion. I can tweet and others can see the tweet if they follow me, but I don’t think they can find the tweet via a search. I can even re-tweet most times, but that does not always seem to work. It is as if any anti-Clinton stuff gets lost on re-tweet. I think having a link in the re-tweet has some effect.

The NEW and biggest problem is that people can put my handle @markstoval in their tweet and I will see that in my Notification time line but if I respond back to them they can not see it in their notification area. That keeps me from tweeting to someone and them seeing it unless they just happen to notice it in the main time line that moves so fast. In other words, they have killed off having any personal conversations or debates. Even a “like” does not seem to register. This appears to be the progressives idea of “free and open discourse”.

I can exchange Direct Messages but the “mail” icon will not alert anyone of the mail. The DM can be read someday in the future if you just happen to be looking in your messages. Neat eh?

And it is not just me having trouble with the Twitter double secret probation crowd:

Breitbart EXCLUSIVE: Twitter Shadowbanning ‘Real and Happening Every Day’ Says Inside Source

Many libertarians and conservatives have pointed out that @Jack is trying to run off everyone who is anywhere close to being against his true-love Hillary Clinton — but is he trying to depress the Twitter stock prices also? Was Twitter not already losing market fast enough for the company?  Anyway, it takes a real coward to invent a whole new way to ban someone. Hell, just say we don’t want your Clinton-hating ass around here no more and I’ll be gone.

Jack? What say you?

UPDATE 1: I have now found that the new and vicious shadowban has been lifted. I think this post may have had something to do with it, but others say that there may be a certain time limit on some shadowbans. Regardless, the ban was meant to stop communication between friends since nearly 3,000 followers could see my tweets in their normal time line and only the notification features and direct message feature were compromised.

  1. I am in this shadowban right now, same thing I was pushing #freemilo , #Hillarys*** and then muted just like you described with the automation lockouts. wondering how long you were muted for? mine is @klapboss

    • Hi, I am not exactly sure. I think it was for 48 hours. It was for at least 24 hours after I realized the ban, but I don’t think I realized it as soon as it happened.

      Twitter has become a left-wing organization and I am looking for some other social media platform that is similar to Twitter. The Milo thing made up my mind to look, and the ban thing told me to start looking hard.

      Sorry to hear you have had this trouble. I’ll tweet you to see if we can communicate.

      • I am unmuted now, looks like it was a 7 day shadowban. My guess is that when they banned accounts like yours that had websites/blogs it got too much attention so they may have switched to shadowbanning smaller accts like mine that help push the #Hillarys**** trend of the day.

        • I felt from the beginning that they did 24 hours for me due to so many people finding out about it. I also had a good friend who is local checking on me every few hours so we knew what the dirty bastards were up to.

          Glad you are back. Wish I could have helped more.

  2. Unfortunately the internat is not as ‘free’ of censorship as people like to think. Since the large corporations LOVE Socialism and the Progressives LOVE Socialism, true capitalism is left in the mud.

    Salem Media Group targets audiences interested in Christian and family-themed content and conservative values. Salem Media owns Redstate (Who DISQUS and IP address banned me) Twitchy, Townhall-com, Hot Air and other ‘conservative’ radio and web sites. Bain Capital owns Rush limpjaw. Fox News is owned by foreigners Mudock and his best buddy a Saudi Prince.

    You can tell who the real anti-Clinton news sites are because Hitlery targeted them.

    What Constitution? Hillary Promises to Destroy Conservative Website as President

    Jim Hoft Aug 19th, 2016

    The Clinton campaign sent out a donations email last night promising to destroy

    They want to make sure is destroyed.

    The Daily Mail reported:

    Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign has sent out a fundraising email arguing the website Breitbart News has no “right to exist,” and suggests that if elected, the website will be shut down entirely.

    “We’ve had a conservative media in this country for a while,” says the email, sent Thursday and signed by deputy communications director Christina Reynolds. “I don’t always like what they have to say, but I respect their role and their right to exist Reynolds’ acknowledgment that the regular conservative media has a “right to exist,” though, is used to contrast it with Breitbart, which apparently has no such right.

    “Breitbart is something different,” she says. “They make Fox News look like a Democratic Party pamphlet. They’re a different breed altogether — not just conservative but radical, bigoted, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic conspiracy peddlers who never have been and never should be anywhere near the levers of power in this country.”

    One of the goals of Clinton’s campaign, Reynolds says, is to ensure Breitbart is destroyed.
