Breaking: Twitter Shadow Bans Grossman

On his congressional and personal Facebook pages, within the past hour, Seth Grossman posted, “My Twitter account is 'shadow banned'! Without any warning, Twitter blocked anyone not already 'following' me from finding me at @Grossman4NJ. It also blocked me from the newsfeeds of the 4,500 who already following me. Twitter did same thing to dozens of Republican Congressmen. Some are suing. Others are filing complaints with Federal Election Commission. I am waiting for response from Twitter before I decide what to do.”

For fun, I typed “Seth Grossman” in the Twitter search bar and a bunch of Seth Grossmans came up, but not the one running for congress. I also asked someone not following Grossman to type "@Grossman4NJ in the search bar and they report to me the results were auto filled with Jarrod, Cheryl and Jesse, but not the congressional candidate.

I left a message on Grossman’s cell phone at 4:24 seeking comment. If there’s anything more on this, we’ll cover it at the Bob & Steve Show.
