Such an eventuality is unheard of. Normally on our Twitter account there’d be between 50 and 100 hits in the space of 20 minutes on a Friday evening.
So once again, we’re smelling a rat. When this has occurred in the past, we’ve browsed across to the trusty www.shadowban.eu, punched in our Twitter username and discovered a screen full of red annotations, indicating we’ve been shadowbanned by the dribbling Silicon Valley ghouls in several different ways.
But tonight, all was Green for GO and we were in the clear:
So unless everyone in the world has decided to ditch the internet this evening, give up the ghost and suddenly cease their online activity altogether, in unison, it seems Twitter have sharpened another axe, swung it around and pioneered a new method of censoring / silencing troublesome types like us.
Please be careful out there and let us know if your activities are being curtailed and your online presence hidden away in the same fashion.
