In this photo illustration, the Twitter app is seen in the Apple App Store on an Apple iPhone 13 Pro in Washington, DC, on November 28, 2022. – Twitter owner Elon Musk on November 28 opened fire against Apple over its tight control of what is allowed on the App Store, saying the iPhone maker has threatened to oust his recently acquired social media platform.

When a user gets shadowbanned, their posts will be less visible (sometimes even non-visible) to other users.

Other individuals will have a hard time finding your account on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms.

Based on these details, shadowbanning is partially blocking user accounts. Usually, you will not be informed if your account has been shadowbanned, making it difficult for you to fix the issue.

Musk wants to change this situation by launching the new shadowbanned tag feature on Twitter.

Here’s how this enhancement can help Twitter users in the future.

How Twitter Shadowbanned Tag Works

The upcoming Twitter shadowbanned tag feature is a new tool that will inform users that their accounts have been shadowbanned.

Musk said that it would also show the reason why the shadowban has been implemented.

Aside from this, the new Twitter feature will also give users instructions on how to submit an appeal.

Thanks to this, users can fix their shadowban problems easier and faster.

Although the new Twitter enhancement is useful, many people are still unsatisfied.

In the comment section of Elon Musk’s Twitter post, some users asked why the billionaire has to launch the new feature if he promised he’d decide who would be shadowbanned.

Other Twitter users said it would be best if they were the ones deciding who gets shadowbanned; by blocking or muting other accounts.

In other news, Elon Musk confirmed that suspended Twitter accounts will receive general amnesty.

We also reported that the Twitter paid verification subscription will not yet return.
