How Twitter Censorship Looks Like

 

Here is a VERY common occurrence of Twitter’s censorship, called “shadow banning”:

Tweets are hidden behind “Show more replies” to not be immediately visible to viewers who are too busy and rushed to spot Tweets. In my case, Pret does not want my writings visible.

Link to above screenshots: 1st Tweet will be visible.

2nd Tweet is HIDDEN from the public on that feed, but visible via @XpretXpert’s Tweets & Replies feed.

3rd Tweet is behind “1 more reply”:

2019-12-27 Hidden Tweets4

3rd Tweet LINK is visible at first, but will not be seen when clicking on “Show more replies”. Twitter RIPS the feed apart which is explained on the Shadowban.eu site as, quote: “threads are completely ripped apart by hiding reply tweets of the affected user to others”. So, when you click on “show more” etc. you seem to hit a brick wall, you can a “1” reply, but you can’t get to it. The feed starts back from the top, but you can’t get to the hidden Tweet.

Here is the 2nd Tweet that has been hidden in the name of no “public interest”:

2019-12-27 HIDDEN Tweet

2nd Tweet LINK via @XpretXpert’s Tweets & Replies feed. These Tweets are from years of experience as a Team Leader during the Christmas Season where items are NOT ordered by shops, but Pret as usual blames the supplier in response to customers’ queries why certain items are not available.

Behind the “This Tweet is unavailable – Learn more”, Twitter gives this explanation, quote:

Placing a Tweet in violation behind an interstitial: We may allow controversial content or behavior which may otherwise violate our rules to remain on our service because we believe there is a legitimate public interest in its availability. When this happens, we limit engagement with the Tweet and add a notice to clarify that the Tweet violates our rules, but we believe it should be left up to serve this purpose. You can read more on how we review Tweets that may be in the legitimate public interest.”

So, Twitter defines what is of “public interest” and what not. But BECAUSE this would be of “public interest” to see the reality beyond the dishonesty, Pret tries to avoid this getting out. My experience of 10 years in Pret shops, with about 8 years as a Team Leader. I worked 8 Christmases doing the ordering for various Pret shops.

Ladies and Gents, THIS is modern-day censorship called “shadow banning”.

And in this case it looks like this, which will be partly in the red (shadow banned / some Tweets hidden) for about 24 – 48 hours from the time of the ban:

On Twitter is OPEN PORNOGRAPHY, where people can tweet their bits and boobs, and explicit language. But my Tweet has been censored by Twitter on Pret’s behalf.

And here’s a similar message I posted to his initial post:

2019-12-27 Hidden Tweets0

Link to my post on the opening Tweet

An undercover report on Twitter shadow banning and how HUMANS, not only bots shadow ban on purpose and choose Tweets they don’t want to be seen. Most banned Tweets are regarding Trump, political propaganda etc. I am not for Trump and right-wing politics, but it is censoring free speech and is completely up to the Twitter people what they want to see or not. And the nasty thing about this is that most people who are secretly censored / shadow banned don’t even know they are! The video explains and I also explain how this works in the audio player interview at the bottom of this page. The video starts with a Twitter staff member saying on hidden camera regarding hiding Tweets and accounts they don’t like or disagree with: “We’re trying to get the shitty people not to show up …”

 


 

I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather starve and speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by

Twitter Shadow Bans – NEW Dangers to Free Speech

 

Twitter is changing its rules on 01. January 2020

They will now delete accounts, reclaim Twitter handles and shut down anyone they don’t like. This means that my accounts may also be shut down on behalf of Pret. At least I’m bracing myself for it. So, if I suddenly disappeared and am suspended, you know why.

This is a clear sign that Twitter is in the pockets of rich companies as well as political agendas, they follow and silence free speech and any critical voices. Now, my writings are a joke compared to what other people campaign for/against, often under the threat of their very lives. But it still kills free speech and for companies to avoid bad press, and it’s unacceptable.

I am a regular to shadow bans and have found ways around it, and still am able to get my message out there. But with the new rules, I see a shut down coming when Pret reports my Tweets. So, if anyone wonders why my account has disappeared in 2020, this is why.

But it won’t silence me!

Please pass the new Twitter rules info on to anyone you know, who is being shadow banned regularly.

Screenshots with the new rules via www.ShadowBan.eu (side note: one of the shadow ban website developers’ account has been shut down recently). The crossed out texts are the original explanations of how Twitter shadow bans work. It’s now updated with the new rules that will silence free speech.

Also, occasionally the Shadowban.eu site is down or being hacked, so, for alternative go to www.Shadowban.io

My story with Pret and also how shadow banning works, I explain in the audio player interview at the bottom of this post.

On shadowban.eu click on the purple: “Twitter reserves the right to limit distribution or visibility of content“, to open to the new “free speech killer” rules:

Shadow Ban new Twitter rules2

In the above link & screenshot, Twitter seemed to have forced Shadowban.eu to “cross out” their explanation of shadow banning, the crossed out section states, quote:
“In a blog post from July 2018, Twitter claims that they do not shadowban by defining shadowbanning as deliberately making someone’s content undiscoverable to everyone except the person who posted it, unbeknownst to the original poster. If you strictly follow Twitter’s own definition, this may not be false because the key is discoverability. Later, Twitter provides a hint why this definition is deceptive by stating that you are always able to see the tweets from accounts you follow (although you may have to do more work to find them, like go directly to their profile). The problem is obvious: Having to do more work to find tweets of accounts is not shadowbanning if you let Twitter define it. Although tweets within a thread may be completely invisible to others or tweets may not be shown in a user’s followers’ timelines, you will always be able to find those tweets by navigating to the user’s “Tweets & replies” section on their profile. In contrast to Twitter, we find that this is shadowbanning because without navigating there, it is not even possible for others to know that the corresponding tweets do exist.”

For a more in-depth insight into shadow banning, there is an undercover report on YouTube I post here below. The main shadow banning that happens is that right-wing Trump supporters are shadow banned. I am not a Trump supporter, and I am just banned for writing about Pret when Pret or Pret supporters report me to Twitter, but it is about free speech being shut down. And that is unacceptable.

The first sentence in the undercover report is by a Twitter staff who explains that Twitter is working on ways to shut people down, quote:
“We’re trying to get the shitty people to not show up. It’s a product thing we’re working on.”

Other Twitter engineers explain how they MANUALLY shut accounts down or hide Tweets. This is not just a bot, these are also humans manually hiding posts and suspending accounts when they don’t agree with what is being posted. The video also shows how arbitrary this is and that Twitter doesn’t haven any guidelines for its employees. It is completely up to the political and personal beliefs of the Twitter engineers. And although I am not for Trump whatsoever, I do disagree with this “wild West” mentality to silence people’s opinion, and in doing this censorship in such a secret, cowardly behind the back way. Most people don’t even know they’re censored, that’s the most disgusting thing about it. But in 2020 Twitter will now just radically shut down accounts.

The undercover report explains how secret censorship works:

Mind Map of my Pret A Manger Ordeal

This link My Pret A Manger Ordeal is a simple and easier overview to link straight to some of the most important blog entries, summarizing my trauma with Pret A Manger. There is much more writing on my website / blog, but the links on the map are the main articles to narrow down, pointing to the main writings of my trauma with Pret.

On the “map”:

  • click on the – minus top left to decrease and get an overview of the map
  • click on the dots to expand or close menu.
  • click on the -> arrow on a particular title to link straight to the article
  • hold the mouse clicked, “grabbing” it to move map around as you would with Google map

 


 

P.S. Twitter “shadow banned” some of my Tweets, please google what shadow banning means. I responded to Twitter’s right out lie about it, and even then can’t find my Tweet when logged out, and one example of many where Twitter shadow banned my Tweets Regarding the first Pret customer death.

My Tweet hidden when logged out, completely different feed even though same URL

This same URL is: https://twitter.com/Pret/status/1045671338260787201

ending with: 1045671338260787201 but when logged in I see my tweets, when logged out ALL my tweets are gone / hidden from everyone else, making me think everything is ok. I assume my tweets are tweeted, my likes are done etc. but only I see it. My followers are NOT notified of new tweets or DMs and can only see my tweets, what I write in DMs when they go straight to my Twitter feed or their DM inbox which most won’t as they are not notified while I am shadow banned … It’s a secret censorship Twitter denies doing on behalf of those with money and power.

 

I will do an extra blog entry in detail on what exactly shadow banning is with my own Tweet examples, and that many people are affected on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.

Pret A Manger has Twitter Shadow Ban Accounts

 

I am “forced” to put this into a blog entry due to shadow bans happening again. Please ignore the 2nd October 2018 date on the left. I am “recycling” old unimportant blog entries, as every new blog post I publish is bookmarked by a bot in a certain country, and shortly after I am also often shadow banned as my blog is linked to Twitter, FB etc. depending on what the post is about.

 

2019-03-07 Three accounts banned

Shadowban.eu

 

The below Tweets led Twitter to shadow ban (censor) 3 accounts on behalf of Pret A Manger to avoid bad press and the truth being told.

This means that as soon as Pret gets wind of a tweet that may lift the lid on their practices, they report to Twitter for the account to be banned where the tweets are hidden from the public. To the account everything looks normal, but in reality all tweets, likes, RT’s are hidden from the public UNLESS people go directly to the Tweet itself, but who would do that without the knowledge that this tweet even exists! So people are fooled and “What the eye does not see, the heart does not grieve over” or out of sight out of mind. Simple.

It is mainly the “nitty gritty” tweets that has Pret via Twitter censor me so the public won’t find my blog here. The reason why Pret does not respond to the Tweets and let’s Twitter censor me is because I declined 4 settlement offers if I remain silent, never go to court etc. after being bullied during bereavement under Pret’s toxic HR department and CEO Clive Schlee’s leadership.

The following got Twitter to ban on behalf of Pret as a paying customer, censoring free speech to avoid the public being made aware of what is really going on behind the shiny PR[et} facade.

 


 

This Tweet got @4abwe shadow banned

To Nick Honey and Clive Schlee, CEO of Pret:
Regarding separating former homeless workers into their own shop leading to this blog entry of countless staff complaints. Ban mentioned in new Tweet.

2019-03-07-tweet-got-4abwe-shadow-banned.jpg

 


 

The Tweets that got @LateNightGirl_ shadow banned

1. Regarding customer service and what really is behind the fast service in Pret that leads to mental health issues, depression, even suicidal thoughts.

2019-03-07 Tweet response to GMB press0.jpg

 

This Tweet reached a person before the ban happened, and they kindly responded, even copying in the press, but not sure if he will get notified, as during a ban people are not notified of a response by the banned account. But thank you

2019-03-07 Tweet response to GMB press

 

2. to Rhiannon L Cosslett regarding who is (or rather who’s not) going to work in Pret after Brexit.

3. to regarding customer service and again, what’s behind the “happy” facade. This Tweet reached someone before the ban as well that they RT’d. Thank you @Kyle2uMental.

 


 

And finally the third account that got banned after @LateNightGirl_ got banned.

This Tweet that got @ReadyToEat4 banned:

To Kat Timpf regarding why Pret staff always look so depressed.

I have to say it does take a person with a certain kind of knowledge to look beyond the forced smiles of Pret staff!

2019-03-07 Tweet got ReadyToEat4 shadow banned

 


 

So, ladies and gentlemen, this is Pret A Manger for you, hiding 2 customer deaths from the public, covering up with lots of free coffees/products and PR how it really is behind the “happy” facade, bullying staff even during bereavement. The shadow bans continue, and so will the publications.

Thank you for reading and to those of you who care, RT, stand up, speak out etc. thank you! All I ask is to please look deeper and closer like Kat Timpf did. Staff suffer but are silenced through fear management and current staff wrote to me that they will receive a disciplinary or get dismissed if they publicly speak out again as they did before.

Please look deeper. TY ❤
