Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz was one of many conservatives “shadow banned” on Twitter after the website allegedly changed their algorithm. These conservatives’ Twitter accounts were suppressed because the site’s search function made their profiles harder to find.
“When you search Matt Gaetz, you don’t get the account that is @MattGaetz which has 33,000 follower. You don’t get @RepMattGaetz, which has over 80,000 followers. Instead you get @NotMattGaetz, that’s what you get. I think @NotMattGaetz has fewer than 12 followers. But that’s what happens when you search for me,” the congressman said.
