What is the Twitter Ghost Ban, and how can we avoid it?

. 5 min read

As a digital marketing expert at Circleboom, I understand the frustration many Twitter users face when they experience a drop in engagement, replies, or retweets. If this sounds familiar, you might be dealing with a ghost ban, also known as a shadow ban.

In this blog post, we'll explore a Twitter ghost ban, how to identify it, and, most importantly, how to avoid it using Circleboom's robust features.


What Is a Twitter Ghost Ban?

A Twitter ghost ban occurs when your tweets become less visible to others without any notification from Twitter. This form of soft censorship limits the reach of your content, making it harder for your followers and others to see your tweets. The ghost ban can severely impact your engagement rates, making it seem your audience is ignoring you.

Types of Twitter Ghost Bans

  1. Search Suggestion Ban: Your account doesn’t appear in search suggestions.
  2. Search Ban: Your tweets are hidden from search results.
  3. Thread Ban: Your replies are hidden from others’ view, but you can still see them.
  4. QFD (Quality Filter Discrimination): Your tweets don’t appear in conversations unless someone clicks “Show more replies.”

How to identify a Twitter Ghost Ban

Detecting a ghost ban can be tricky since Twitter doesn't notify you. However, sure signs can indicate a possible ban. A sudden drop in engagement, invisible replies, and search invisibility are common indicators. If your likes, retweets, and replies have plummeted overnight, or if your replies to tweets are not visible to others, you might be ghost-banned. Additionally, it's another indicator if your tweets or account do not appear in search results. Fortunately, Circleboom offers a Twitter Shadowban Test feature that allows you to check your account’s status quickly and easily. Using Circleboom Twitter Tool, you can confirm if you are under a ghost ban and take appropriate actions. However, sure signs can indicate a possible ban:

  • Sudden Drop in Engagement: If your likes, retweets, and replies have plummeted overnight, it’s a red flag.
  • Invisible Replies: If your replies to tweets are not visible to others, you might be ghost-banned.
  • Search Invisibility: If your tweets or account do not appear in search results, it's another indicator.
