Recently a bot account I have got shadow banned and I was surprised how little info online I could find about that. Is it permanent or temporary? I’m currently testing it by doing a search and seeing if my bot shows up the results.
The bot is called @Aloebud and it:
- lets people tend a garden by sending emoji resources to it
- send digital flowers to people
the way the flower sending works is you DM the bot and then it tags the person you want to send the flower to and the person sending it. It’s kinda cute and has very high engagement.
but I guess it got too popular because we seem to have gotten shadow banned? We are not appearing in any search results and TBH I’m not sure what else shadow banning does…
anyone have any experiece with that? Or the best way to ask for a 2nd chance from twitter?
I did submit to https://support.twitter.com/forms/platform and got a responce (I think automated) that my app keys were re-enabled… but they were never fully disabled… so that didn’t seem to be the answer.
I do understand that shadow bans are to stop abuse. I don’t think letting people send flowers to each other counts but I guess I’m open to being wrong
