It appears that Twitter does allegedly have the capability to shadow ban selected users through a blacklist button on the backend of the companies website. It allegedly was discovered through the recent hacking incident that left some of Twitter’s biggest account holders exposed, as well as some of the companies operations.
On Wednesday, Twitter executives acknowledged that high profile accounts were compromised and that malicious links were being posted on the accounts. Those links urged followers to send $1,000 in Bitcoin to a specific address. Some of the high profile accounts included former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Apple and Uber accounts.
