    twitter shadowban 5th Sep 17 at 9:24 PM
    Lots of people are being shadowbanned on twitter recently. Just found by a search that I am too but no idea what it means. Does anyone know? Does it mean all the comps i've done there and retweets are not showing to comp runners? Can't find much info on it but if its messing about with my account i'll close it.

    Here's a link to see if you are shadowbanned

    I thought twitter jail was different to shadowbanning. I thought twitter jail was if you reached a limit of 100 tweets in an hour.

    You can do a percentage of the daily quota they allow in a set 2/3 hr time frame, the daily quota is approx 1400, though what the hourly quota is who knows, twitter jail lasts until the 2/3hr time frame has moved on to the next 2/3 hr time frame.

    So as I've often had jail for just 10 or so mins as i'm close to the end of that time frame, then on the odd occasions i've been jailed near on 3hrs.

    The start and end of time frames seem to change quite often.

    According to this page the maximum number of tweets per day is 2400, broken down into half hourly chunks.

    Although it seems that you can do a lot less than that before you get shadowbanned.

    Apologies Marg. The jail was just my name for the shadow ban, not realising there was such an actual thing.

    I must say I'm fed up with whatever is going on but won't be defeated.

    It's irritating, isn't it! Must be annoying companies too as they're missing out on loads of RTs and comp entries, which is essentially free advertising!

    I am not banned today but who knows what tomorrow may bring!

    too many comps..not enough time!

    So i seem to have managed to get myself shadowbanned today. Noticed i wasn't getting the usual volume of notifications and then i discovered why. Do i just wait it out? How long does it usually last?

    It's a minefield out there.

    Thanks Toni, apparently I'm not SB-ed after all. But it's still saying I am at http://www.shadowban.de/tester/.

    Oh well, perhaps it's a Twitter blip then?

    Okay just checked your @ and it isn't showing under search, so you are Search filtered BUT that means nothing unless it is a hashtag comp, you def show in notifications as you saw with the print screen I sent you.

    I used to get search filtered tons and still won regardless, If too many rt rt rt rt in a row then it appears.

    Go into private and look at this: https://twitter.com/fishisthedish/status/912946984511770624


    I can see you thanking the company you like blu above have comments showing and are search filtered, which usually lasts 24hrs, you have prob done too many actions too quick.

    Being search filtered doesn't ruin your chances of winning bar in # comps.

    No idea why it's call shadow banning, but it stems from doing too many same actions too quick and it is just filtering poor quality content out of search, when that behaviour changes it lets you back into search.

    When your comments don't show to others is when there is a real issue but that doesn't apply to either of you at the moment,
