Hi everyone, one of you told us know that our twitter @LizMitchellFC has been filtered. Twitter did this to the entire account (tweets/media included) as if we posted sensitive contents. This has been happening since at least October 2018 and it means that everything we post (news, photos, quotes, videos) to promote Elizabeth and to share this sunshine with other people have been blocked by Twitter for NO reason. Beside our followers nobody can see us. So this is a huge damage to Liz and it’s not fair!
We are very sorry that we’ve just found out about it.
We run a search and we noticed that a lot of accounts (personal twitter accounts) have been censored for no reason as well. A lot of people didn’t even noticed that, but we’ve just found out today that what is happening is something called “shadow ban”.
The only way to see us (and other shadowbanned accounts) is to allow “sensitive contents” in search settings, but all the twitter accounts are set for not showing “sensitive contents” by default. For years they’ve posted porn on twitter (including in the “Elizabeth Mitchell” tag) and they created something to filter this kind of contents, but their system has obviously a huge bug.
We didn’t get a warning and our account is not suspended (which it would allow us to appeal) so we asked for an explanation. Beside telling us they do not censor anyone, they didn’t say or help in any way. We’ve been contacting them since last Friday, but they keep not responding.
Oh hey Liz, can you ask to the friend of your friend, who worked for the CIA, to help us fixing this? LOL!
New fans or simply people who want to look on twitter what Liz is up to, they can’t find us so it seems nobody cares about her. And we don’t want it to look that way. We have always been here and we care, so we created a new account @LizMitchellSite, please follow us there as well, we’ll keep trying to get help, since we don’t want to lose @LizMitchellFC. It has 10 years of history, memories, joy, our conversations with you guys… but in case they won’t fix this problem, we will probably need to move on and make @LizMitchellSite the main account.
Also allow “sensitive contents” in search to see us on @LizMitchellFC.
For those who want to find out if their own account has been shadow banned, log into another account, be sure your are NOT allowing “sensitive contents” and search @yourname. If you cannot find you among people, Twitter censured you.
