Remove The Shadow Ban feature from Twitter

This petition had 1,680 supporters

Twitter has recently added a filter that most refer to as a shadow ban in a bid to make their site more "Advertiser friendly"


Without informing accounts, they can shadow ban you based on the words you use, which basically means for 14 days nobody can see notifications made by you, effectively making you invisible.

I fully believe this to be in violation of people's rights to free speech. If it was removing hate speech I would understand, but this targets role-players, people who swear from time to time, and people who post lewd images... while you may have thoughts about such images, they do not break free speech.

I want Twitter to realise that they cannot simply silence voices they don't like hearing. The internet is a free space, and people will leave in DROVES if they cannot speak!
