Washington sources reported that US President Donald Trump slammed Twitter for "shadow banning" some Republicans in search results on the micro-blogging platform. Trump tweeted "Shadow Banning" prominent Republicans, Not good and they will look into this discriminatory and illegal practice at once many complaints".



Meanwhile the tweet came a day after Vice News reported that Republican Party chair Ronna McDaniel, several conservative Republican congressmen and Donald Trump Jr.'s spokesperson stopped showing up in Twitter's auto-populated drop down search box. Accordingly Twitter is limiting the visibility of prominent Republicans in search results a technique known as "shadow banning" in what it says is a side effect of its attempts to improve the quality of discourse on the platform".
