Secret Blacklists

Weiss revealed that teams of Twitter staff construct blacklists and intentionally reduce the visibility of whole accounts or trending topics without notifying users

Weiss named former top executives of the company, including Vijaya Gadde, Yoel Roth, Parag Agrawal, and Jack Dorsey, as members of a "secret group" that made significant decisions on the platform

Weiss shared screenshots of how various accounts were labelled internally in order to limit their reach on Twitter. These accounts belonged to conservative individuals

Targeted Shadow Ban

Weiss also spoke about the culture of "shadow-banning" on Twitter, which she claims is called "Visibility Filtering" by the platform. Using this method, Twitter blocks searches for individual accounts, limiting their reach

Weiss also accused Twitter of blocking select users' posts from appearing on the "trending" page

Limited Reach

Some critics have called for stricter regulation of social media platforms to prevent abuses of power and ensure that all users are treated fairly
