Twitter has acknowledged that it is working to artificially limit the reach of "troll-like" accounts on the platform -- "shadowbanning" users in all but name, a practice that the company has repeatedly denied.
In an announcement earlier today, Twitter said they were taking steps to limit "behaviors that distort and detract from the public conversation" by downranking content that exhibits such behaviors from search results and "public conversations."
In other words, if your behavior is considered "troll-like" by Twitter, it will be harder for other users to find your posts on the platform. The practice of limiting the visibility of content without formally suspending the content owner, notifying them, or deleting the content in question the definition of shadowbanning.
Although Twitter employees have been caught on camera admitting that shadowbanning takes place on the platform, the company continues to publicly deny that it engages in the practice -- they have even made such denials in Senate hearings.
