Stopping Exposure of GlassForSenate Campaign
June 17, 2020 — My Twitter followers have been telling me they are getting “unfollowed” from my account even though they have never made such a request. I first was informed of this as I became heavily involved in promoting Liz Glass for New York Senate.
I will be documenting this fully in a future report, but as of right now all I have time to say is the following:
- I am losing multiple followers who never requested to unfollow me
- I have seen – in real time – likes & retweets “disappear” from my tweets
- My reach has dropped significantly since I began working on GlassForSenate
I expected my reach to drop somewhat when I began to focus my website on the campaign of a local NY State Senate race. That is not a surprise. However the drastic extent of the decline has forced me to consider if that reason alone could possibly account for the totality of the massive drop.
Twitter Shadowbans do happen and I suspect that my account has been targeted in this way to help minimize the exposure Liz Glass can get on social media, protecting the incumbent Albany Democrat she is challenging, Brad Hoylman.
