5 Reasons Why You Might Be Shadow Banned on Twitter

Twitter is an extremely popular social media service where you can send out your thoughts in the form of tweets. However, you are limited in what you can say on the platform. Twitter doesn't take well to hate speech, threats, and other poor behavior. If you are caught engaging in any of these behaviors, you will face consequences from the company. For instance, you might find yourself .

If you are unfamiliar with the term shadowban, it is essentially when Twitter makes it so that other people can't see what you are posting on the platform. There are three main shadowban types: thread/ghost shadowbans, search suggestions, and search bans. A thread/ghost ban means that no one can see comments you make on other people's posts. With a search suggestion ban, your name will not come up as a suggestion when people go to the search bar. Finally, when someone searches for a specific phrase/tag, your tweets will not come up if you are under a search ban.

The tricky thing about shadowbans is that Twitter generally doesn't tell you that you are under one. However, if you determine that you are under a shadowban, DoNotPay can help you appeal to Twitter to lift the ban.
